Why Rust?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on dev.to

Our great sponsors
  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • wasmtime

    A fast and secure runtime for WebAssembly

    And then there is wasmtime, a high performance runtime for Wasm, written in Rust. This means we can have fast plugins, written in Rust, compiled to Wasm, running in our tool. Rust everywhere!

  • rust-analyzer

    A Rust compiler front-end for IDEs

    And then there is the wonderful rust analyzer which provides completion, go-to-definition, and refactoring to my editor.

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • crates.io

    The Rust package registry

    Rust libraries are known as crates (and can be browsed at crates.io). Though the ecosystem is nascent, there is already a plethora of high quality crates, and trying out a crate is as easy as cargo add. There is of course some legitimate worry that the Rust crate ecosystem could devolve into the crazy left-pad world of npm, and it is something to be wary about, but so far the Rust crates keep an overall high quality.
