PHP vs Rust: What are the differences?
PHP: A popular general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited to web development. Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world; Rust: A safe, concurrent, practical language. Rust is a systems programming language that combines strong compile-time correctness guarantees with fast performance. It improves upon the ideas of other systems languages like C++ by providing guaranteed memory safety (no crashes, no data races) and complete control over the lifecycle of memory.
PHP and Rust can be categorized as "Languages" tools.
"Large community" is the primary reason why developers consider PHP over the competitors, whereas "Guaranteed memory safety" was stated as the key factor in picking Rust.
PHP and Rust are both open source tools. Rust with 36.9K GitHub stars and 5.81K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than PHP with 23.7K GitHub stars and 5.5K GitHub forks.
Facebook, Lyft, and 9GAG are some of the popular companies that use PHP, whereas Rust is used by Dropbox, Sentry, and Roundscope Ukraine Labs.
