So what is Macchina?

Macchina is an open source system information fetcher, written in Rust, and available for Linux, Windows, macOS and NetBSD.

What makes it different from other fetchers?

Unlike certain fetchers, Macchina takes performance seriously.
The reason why it exists, is because I wanted a fetcher that came up as soon as I opened my terminal.

It's customizable, extensive, does not require a config file, it's a true Plug & Play experience.

If you're into ricing your desktop, or you simply want a speedy program that displays your system information to appear when you launch your terminal, Macchina is here for the rescue!
