Julia vs Rust: What are the differences?
What is Julia? A high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for technical computing. Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for technical computing, with syntax that is familiar to users of other technical computing environments. It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library.
What is 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.
Julia and Rust belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.
"Lisp-like Macros" is the top reason why over 7 developers like Julia, while over 81 developers mention "Guaranteed memory safety" as the leading cause for choosing Rust.
Julia and Rust are both open source tools. It seems that Rust with 36.9K GitHub stars and 5.81K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Julia with 22.5K GitHub stars and 3.4K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Rust has a broader approval, being mentioned in 38 company stacks & 102 developers stacks; compared to Julia, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.
