  • Killed by Google

    Part guillotine, part graveyard for Google's doomed apps, services, and hardware.

    And it is all because of Google, 5 years ago Go was their "Rust" and it was the "ultimate" lang for their company, now they have many others including Carbon which comes to try and replace C++ which means that Go at least internally at Google is a "fiasco" (otherwise they wouldnt care about Carbon or similar) and i have low faith in Google products when they are on the edge of the rope

  • serde

    Serialization framework for Rust

    Rust leverages that, and its trait system, and its support for metaprogramming, to devastating effect with things like Serde, Clap, and Rayon... all third-party things. (Go is somewhat infamous for giving the standard library special privileges, while, when Rust does it, it's "this is an unstable API that you need a nightly-channel compiler for and we hope to stabilize it in some form eventually"... an approach they take because of their promise that things which compile now should still compile in wharever version is around in ten years, modulo "that only passed the checks because of a compiler bug" and the like.)

  • smartcore-jupyter

    Experiment with Smartcore using Jupyter Notebooks

    Hi, we are developing a library for ML in Rust that leverages a "pythonic" interface. This can be used by practitioners with Python background to get into Rust. You can see examples in notebooks in this repository.

  • Nim

    Nim is a statically typed compiled systems programming language. It combines successful concepts from mature languages like Python, Ada and Modula. Its design focuses on efficiency, expressiveness, and elegance (in that order of priority).
