The Rust I Wanted Had No Future

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/rust

Our great sponsors
  • Mergify - Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • mioco

    [no longer maintained] Scalable, coroutine-based, fibers/green-threads for Rust. (aka MIO COroutines).

    Honestly Rust with green threads as an option would be exciting one. Looks like there has been an attempt before ( - no longer maintained).

  • rayon

    Rayon: A data parallelism library for Rust


  • Mergify

    Updating dependencies is time-consuming.. Solutions like Dependabot or Renovate update but don't merge dependencies. You need to do it manually while it could be fully automated! Add a Merge Queue to your workflow and stop caring about PR management & merging. Try Mergify for free.

  • inko

    A language for building concurrent software with confidence

    Perhaps it's worth looking into Inko? I apologise if I'm shilling my own project a bit too hard here, but reading through the comments it does seem people would be interested in what it's trying to do :)

  • HVM

    A massively parallel, optimal functional runtime in Rust

    Then, actually unrelated but worth mentioning: HVM. Finally, something new on the functional front that isn't dependent types!

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
