Haskell vs Rust: What are the differences?

Haskell: An advanced purely-functional programming language. ; 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.

Haskell and Rust can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.

"Purely-functional programming " is the primary reason why developers consider Haskell over the competitors, whereas "Guaranteed memory safety" was stated as the key factor in picking Rust.

Rust is an open source tool with 36.9K GitHub stars and 5.81K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Rust's open source repository on GitHub.

Sentry, Dropbox, and Roundscope Ukraine Labs are some of the popular companies that use Rust, whereas Haskell is used by thoughtbot, DoxIQ, and Wagon. Rust has a broader approval, being mentioned in 38 company stacks & 102 developers stacks; compared to Haskell, which is listed in 33 company stacks and 45 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to Haskell and Rust?
Scala
Scala is an acronym for “Scalable Language”. This means that Scala grows with you. You can play with it by typing one-line expressions and observing the results. But you can also rely on it for large mission critical systems, as many companies, including Twitter, LinkedIn, or Intel do. To some, Scala feels like a scripting language. Its syntax is concise and low ceremony; its types get out of the way because the compiler can infer them.
Clojure
Clojure is designed to be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system.
Erlang
Some of Erlang's uses are in telecoms, banking, e-commerce, computer telephony and instant messaging. Erlang's runtime system has built-in support for concurrency, distribution and fault tolerance. OTP is set of Erlang libraries and design principles providing middle-ware to develop these systems.
Python
Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
JavaScript
JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.

      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.

      Don't worry, be type-safe.
