What CLI tool will blow your mind? (written in rust)
16 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 23 Apr 2022
WhiteboxTools (https://www.whiteboxgeo.com/) is a CLI tool that is about 500,000 lines of Rust (https://github.com/jblindsay/whitebox-tools) and is used for geospatial analysis in all kinds of industries. Most people use one of the many front-ends for it though (e.g. the QGIS plugin), so as to avoid the CLI, but at the most basic level, it's just a CLI. (Note, I'm the author of this tool, and so a little biased.)
