Hack vs Rust: What are the differences?

Hack: A programming language for HHVM that interoperates seamlessly with PHP. Hack provides instantaneous type checking via a local server that watches the filesystem. It typically runs in less than 200 milliseconds, making it easy to integrate into your development workflow without introducing a noticeable delay; Rust: A safe, concurrent, practical language. Rust is a systems programming language that combines strong compile-time correctness guarantees with fast performance. It improves upon the ideas of other systems languages like C++ by providing guaranteed memory safety (no crashes, no data races) and complete control over the lifecycle of memory.

Hack and Rust can be categorized as "Languages" tools.

"Interoperates seamlessly with php" is the primary reason why developers consider Hack over the competitors, whereas "Guaranteed memory safety" was stated as the key factor in picking Rust.

Rust is an open source tool with 37.3K GitHub stars and 5.85K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Rust's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Rust has a broader approval, being mentioned in 39 company stacks & 105 developers stacks; compared to Hack, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

    Rust is used in Shirogane (https://github.com/Marc3842h/shirogane).

    Shirogane is a osu! beatmap mirror built for shiro. We use Rust because of memory safe but still low level and high performance.
