Cocoa (OS X) vs Actix: What are the differences?

Developers describe Cocoa (OS X) as "The Cocoa frameworks consist of libraries, APIs, and runtimes that form the development layer for all of OS X". Much of Cocoa is implemented in Objective-C, an object-oriented language that is compiled to run at incredible speed, yet employs a truly dynamic runtime making it uniquely flexible. Because Objective-C is a superset of C, it is easy to mix C and even C++ into your Cocoa applications. On the other hand, Actix is detailed as "An actor system and web framework for Rust". It web is a simple, pragmatic and extremely fast web framework for Rust. Actors are objects which encapsulate state and behavior, they communicate exclusively by exchanging messages.

Cocoa (OS X) and Actix belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.

Actix is an open source tool with 3.3K GitHub stars and 216 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Actix's open source repository on GitHub.

    warp
    warp lets you securely share your terminal with one simple command: warp open. When connected to your warp, clients can see your terminal exactly as if they were sitting next to you. You can also grant them write access, the equivalent of handing them your keyboard.
    Rocket
    Rocket is a web framework for Rust that makes it simple to write fast web applications without sacrificing flexibility or type safety. All with minimal code.
    Iron
    Iron is a high level web framework built in and for Rust, built on hyper. Iron is designed to take advantage of Rust's greatest features - its excellent type system and its principled approach to ownership in both single threaded and multi threaded contexts.
    Hyper
    Hyper.sh is a secure container hosting service. What makes it different from AWS (Amazon Web Services) is that you don't start servers, but start docker images directly from Docker Hub or other registries.
    Elixir
    Elixir leverages the Erlang VM, known for running low-latency, distributed and fault-tolerant systems, while also being successfully used in web development and the embedded software domain.
