A language empowering everyone
to build reliable and efficient software.

Why Rust?


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 the 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.


Command Line

Whip up a CLI tool quickly with Rust’s robust ecosystem. Rust helps you maintain your app with confidence and distribute it with ease.

Building Tools
gear with puzzle piece elements


Use Rust to supercharge your JavaScript, one module at a time. Publish to npm, bundle with webpack, and you’re off to the races.

Writing Web Apps

Predictable performance. Tiny resource footprint. Rock-solid reliability. Rust is great for network services.

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.
