    Also really easy to implement as there are libraries that do all the heavy lifting for you (https://github.com/markbates/goth is a great starting place IMHO)

    For the kind of websites I prefer to build -- server side rendered with HTMX/Alpine for the extra niceness -- Rust I think could be a very good fit. The main downside for my personal projects is the ecosystem. E.g., a good standard way to handle CSRF tokens, standardised oauth2 implementations (like https://github.com/markbates/goth in Go), things like that. I found myself having to write a lot of code that just exists in the Go ecosystem. The main downside for a business is that it's going to make it harder to hire, since Rust genuinely requires more skill. Yes, developers will make mistakes in Go, as it's far too easy to do things like access shared memory in dangerous ways. But on the flip side, it's a lot easier for them to deliver a feature. In a choice between shipping a feature that is buggy in hard to detect ways, vs not being able to deliver at all because you can't get developers, I think it's better to ship.
