MessagePack vs Serde: What are the differences?

Developers describe MessagePack as "A binary serialization format". It is an efficient binary serialization format. It lets you exchange data among multiple languages like JSON. But it's faster and smaller. Small integers are encoded into a single byte, and typical short strings require only one extra byte in addition to the strings themselves. On the other hand, Serde is detailed as "Serialization framework for Rust". It is a framework for serializing and deserializing Rust data structures efficiently and generically The ecosystem consists of data structures that know how to serialize and deserialize themselves along with data formats that know how to serialize and deserialize other things. It provides the layer by which these two groups interact with each other, allowing any supported data structure to be serialized and deserialized using any supported data format..

MessagePack and Serde can be primarily classified as "Serialization Frameworks" tools.

MessagePack and Serde are both open source tools. It seems that MessagePack with 5.07K GitHub stars and 449 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Serde with 3.01K GitHub stars and 320 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to MessagePack and Serde?
    JSON
    JavaScript Object Notation is a lightweight data-interchange format. It is easy for humans to read and write. It is easy for machines to parse and generate. It is based on a subset of the JavaScript Programming Language.
    Avro
    It is a row-oriented remote procedure call and data serialization framework developed within Apache's Hadoop project. It uses JSON for defining data types and protocols, and serializes data in a compact binary format.
    Protobuf
    Protocol buffers are Google's language-neutral, platform-neutral, extensible mechanism for serializing structured data – think XML, but smaller, faster, and simpler.
    gRPC
    gRPC is a modern open source high performance RPC framework that can run in any environment. It can efficiently connect services in and across data centers with pluggable support for load balancing, tracing, health checking...
    Apache Thrift
    The Apache Thrift software framework, for scalable cross-language services development, combines a software stack with a code generation engine to build services that work efficiently and seamlessly between C++, Java, Python, PHP, Ruby, Erlang, Perl, Haskell, C#, Cocoa, JavaScript, Node.js, Smalltalk, OCaml and Delphi and other languages.
