Consider this the "Embrace Rust" tip post. If an app can be rewritten in Rust, then someone's probably done it already.
Here are my top 3 (Besides
exa, as I covered that yesterday)
Bat is a
cat rewrite, in Rust. It has colours. Lots of colours.
Ripgrep, as one can imagine, is a
grep rewrite in Rust. Now, it's not got as many colours (Well, why would it?), but it's crazy fast.
Finally, one without a rusted name. Skim is a
fzf alternative. It's good for presenting lists of content in a filterable fashion. Lets take a look at
kill -9 followed by Tab
Thanks for tuning in,
Until next time 🤘
