i ran through the rust “getting started” page (rust-lang.org/learn/get-starte). it's a hello-world project that has the rust crab mascot say hello, and consists of 10 lines of code actually written.

it results in pulling in 25 separate dependencies totalling up to 97 megabytes.

for reference the entire cowsay source is 168 lines/4 kilobytes of perl.

@boilingsteam Well yeah, that comes with the territory of webshit development, but rust is billed as a """"systems programming language""""
