A language empowering everyone
to build reliable and efficient software.
Rust is blazingly fast and memory-efficient: with no runtime or garbage collector, it can power performance-critical services, run on embedded devices, and easily integrate with other languages.
Rust’s rich type system and ownership model guarantee memory-safety and thread-safety — enabling you to eliminate many classes of bugs at compile-time.
Rust has great documentation, a friendly compiler with useful error messages, and top-notch tooling — an integrated package manager and build tool, smart multi-editor support with auto-completion and type inspections, an auto-formatter, and more.
Build it in Rust
In 2018, the Rust community decided to improve programming experience for a few distinct domains (see the 2018 roadmap). For these, you can find many high-quality crates and some awesome guides on how to get started.
Whip up a CLI tool quickly with Rust’s robust ecosystem. Rust helps you maintain your app with confidence and distribute it with ease.
Writing Web Apps
Predictable performance. Tiny resource footprint. Rock-solid reliability. Rust is great for network services.
Working On Servers
Targeting low-resource devices? Need low-level control without giving up high-level conveniences? Rust has you covered.
Starting With Embedded
Rust in production
Hundreds of companies around the world are using Rust in production today for fast, low-resource, cross-platform solutions. Software you know and love, like Firefox, Dropbox, and Cloudflare, uses Rust. From startups to large corporations, from embedded devices to scalable web services, Rust is a great fit.
My biggest compliment to Rust is that it’s boring, and this is an amazing compliment.
All the documentation, the tooling, the community is great – you have all the tools to succeed in writing Rust code.
– Antonio Verardi, Infrastructure Engineer
We love documentation! Take a look at the books available online, as well as key blog posts and user guides.
