I made a tool in Rust to play mechanical keyboard sounds on every key press

Rustyvibes

A Rust CLI that makes mechanical keyboard sound effects on every key press. It was a collaborative effort that took months to make, is now finally releasing.

macOS:

brew install kb24x7/rustyvibes/rustyvibes
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Windows / Linux:

cargo install rustyvibes
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Usage

rustyvibes <soundpack_path>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Mechvibes vs. Rustyvibes

How does Rustyvibes compare to its competitors like Mechvibes? Mechvibes uses Electron and Chromium which is very resource intensive. Rustyvibes on the other hand is made with Rust and can be upto 10x-100x more resource efficient.
