why the hell rust commands are 'diesel' and 'cargo'??
@er1n after I saw a friend writting a 900 lines long code in rust for a script that would be at most 50 lines of python I was very less hyper by this technology for this kind of applications >_>
@CobaltVelvet I'm really interested in examples then because, from here, except if you do this a().b().c().... to compress things on one line python (and ruby) seems way more expressive than rust :o
also my experience of having 5% of my productivity level in haskell compare to python made me very skeptical of those langage for fast and short dev which is 90% of my use cases
Always a trade off between fast and more flexible development and slower memory usage. That's a strategical choice and you generally have better chance of sucess if you choose the first when you have no idea on the potential success.
Rewrite can come later if really needed.

@er1n Good luck with that, but if you think I’m putting a binary blob executable on my web server you have several more thinks on their way soon. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
@rotatingskull well, you can build it from source then lol
given the amount of trust put in mastodon's massive codebase (when considering deps, node, ruby), a prebuilt binary is not that bad for most people
Thanks for the reply.
@er1n hey is there like a high bandwidth conversation place I can ask you questions about rustodon?
