Why trusting in Rust?
Since the introduction of the Rust programming language, there is no longer an excuse to write legacy software in an unsafe programming language. NICKOL helps you building safe, reliable and fast applications using Rust.
The Rust standard library was designed with security and safety as the top priorities. Expect cryptographically secure hash algorithms and comparators as well as array bound checks to protect you from runtime errors and unexpected runtime behavior.
Rust is a multi-paradigm programming language. It is influenced by imperative procedural, functional and object oriented programming languages.
Memory- and thread-safety are ensured by the ownership model of Rust. Stop fighting null pointer exceptions or dangling pointers. Welcome compiler errors in exchange to a reliable software system.
The influence of functional programming allows to quickly create code that does what it is supposed to do. The tools around Rust do a great job to boost your productivity in delivering code.
Fun to use
Fun to use
Build on a solid foundation with superb tool support. Feel the power of writing reliable code you can trust. Find unsafe parts of your program easily.
Rust is compiled by LLVM to machine code. It uses zero-cost abstractions to deliver advanced features using macros or templates which are compiled down to handwritten code.
