This post is basically telling me to use Rust Lang for the solution(s) it is best for which are mentioned in my another post here.

I tried using Rust Lang for converting my main site from 11ty SSG to Zola SSG, and also tried building a web application, however, the experience was not great as It has been always while using Jekyll and Ruby on Rails respectively.

So, use the tool which is best for that trade.
