Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Introducing apt.cli.rs, a Debian/Ubuntu apt repository for Rust cli tools
3 projects | /r/rust | 3 Sep 2021
So I'm thinking making a GitHub action to make it easier to build musl debs for (amd64, i686, arm64, armhf) would be the most useful way to get more cli tools in the repo (then it's "just" a matter of adding cargo-deb configs). It seems a lot of tools already build binaries for musl. If you are interested in working on that let me know! Otherwise I'll try to build something. Also several people have started talking about packages to add here: https://github.com/ethanhs/apt.cli.rs/issues/1
Deciding between Rust or Go for desktop applications
9 projects | /r/golang | 8 Apr 2023
Folks open to using gdu might like to try dust (6k stars), or even erdtree (1.4k stars) which is too recent to show up on lists like this and still a bit behind on stars. A lot of people seem to use starship (33k stars) though I'm personally oldschool on prompts. There are many other items on that list I'm not motivated to check.

Rust vs Go Issue

The first thought I had was to use rayon for this. And looking at some prior art that does pretty much the exact same thing, it does indeed use rayon.

Happened to me this morning, something filled up my drive in minutes. I used dust to look for large files while it was happening but knowing what was doing it would've been a big help.

Rust-shell: what features you would you like to see in a shell ?
5 projects | /r/commandline | 28 Dec 2022
I don't understand what you mean by Graphics integration or graphical frontend. Do you have an example? Instead of du - I recommend dust. The data features - are basically the features of nushell, are you using it? Regarding the variables - excellent idea, I will implement this. What do you mean by menu creation? What syntax would you use for "skip next line"?
