          i feel like rust could have been better, the threading and safety stuff is fine but the syntax is overly complex

            Look at the release notes. They made it simpler declaring static strings. They are trying to make Rust from release to release simpler.

              Rust is so awesome. I'm doing a project to port Apple's shell_cmds to Rust just to learn Rust faster.

                Which seems the opposite approach from how I would expect modern programming language development to proceed.

                  Yes. Its syntax seems unusual at first for most people including myself. I think that's mainly because it's not C like.

                    You should contribute to the Ion shell that I have been working on. It is currently much faster than both Bash and Dash, with a cleaner syntax and support for first class arrays -- something other shells completely lack. I am continually looking for people to mentor into the project, as otherwise it's just me working on the project, and that's no good for such a big project to scale into the future. One of the areas needing work is implementing more shell commands as builtin commands.
