    Two things that might help Rust a lot despite the complexity is the tooling and the ecosystem. Cargo is good, the compiler is extremely helpful, and there are a lot of crates to build on for all sorts of tasks.

    For example, if I need to use simulated annealing to solve an optimization problem, there already exist libraries that implement that algorithm well.[1] Unfortunately, the Haskell library for this seems to be unmaintained[2] and so does the OCaml library that I can find.[3] Similarly, Agda, Idris, and Lean 4 all seem like great languages. But not having libraries for one's tasks is a big obstacle to adoption.

    Nim looks very promising. (Surprisingly so to me.) Hopefully they will succeed at gaining wider recognition and growing a healthy ecosystem.

    [1] E.g.,

    [2] was released in 2018. (Although there are newer commits in the GitHub repo, Not too sure what is going on.)


What are some alternatives?

When comparing nimber and hmatrix you can also consider the following projects:

hTensor - Multidimensional arrays and simple tensor computations

linear - Low-dimensional linear algebra primitives for Haskell.

algebra - constructive abstract algebra

hmatrix-repa - Compatability between hmatrix and repa matrices and vectors

diagrams-solve - Miscellaneous solver code for diagrams (low-degree polynomials, tridiagonal matrices)

hblas - haskell bindings for blas and lapack

nats - Haskell 98 Natural Numbers

vector - An efficient implementation of Int-indexed arrays (both mutable and immutable), with a powerful loop optimisation framework .

math-functions - Special mathematical functions

fast-math - Play fast and loose with IEEE-754 rewrite RULES

hgeometry - HGeometry is a library for computing with geometric objects in Haskell. It defines basic geometric types and primitives, and it implements some geometric data structures and algorithms. The main two focusses are: (1) Strong type safety, and (2) implementations of geometric algorithms and data structures that have good asymptotic running time guarantees.
