Markdown vs Rust: What are the differences?
What is Markdown? Text-to-HTML conversion tool/syntax for web writers, by John Gruber. Markdown is two things: (1) a plain text formatting syntax; and (2) a software tool, written in Perl, that converts the plain text formatting to HTML.
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.
Markdown and Rust can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.
"Easy formatting" is the top reason why over 345 developers like Markdown, while over 81 developers mention "Guaranteed memory safety" as the leading cause for choosing 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.
Asana, Code School, and GoSquared are some of the popular companies that use Markdown, whereas Rust is used by Dropbox, Sentry, and Roundscope Ukraine Labs. Markdown has a broader approval, being mentioned in 756 company stacks & 718 developers stacks; compared to Rust, which is listed in 39 company stacks and 105 developer stacks.
