Top 10 Rust Configuration Projects

  • config-rs

    ⚙️ Layered configuration system for Rust applications (with strong support for 12-factor applications).

    Project mention: Is there a pydantic.BaseSettings equivalent in rust? | /r/rust | 2023-06-05

    Consider config crate. It could be like:

  • nickel

    Better configuration for less

    Project mention: Announcing Nickel 1.0, a configuration language written in (and usable from) Rust | /r/rust | 2023-06-08

    The LSP is aware of contracts (and the rest of the tooling, in particular `nickel query`) and is able to show "types" (really contracts), documentation, provide completion and so on. You can take a look at a simple Kubernetes example here:

  • SonarLint

    Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint. Up your coding game and discover issues early. SonarLint is a free plugin that helps you find & fix bugs and security issues from the moment you start writing code. Install from your favorite IDE marketplace today.

  • confy

    🛋 Zero-boilerplate configuration management in Rust

    Project mention: How do you manage configuration in rust? | /r/rust | 2022-12-15

    I'd really recommend confy! It does exactly what you seem to want and supports YAML, TOML, and RON :)

  • kcl

    A constraint-based record & functional language mainly used in configuration and policy scenarios.

    Project mention: Show HN: The KCL Programming Language for DevOps | | 2023-06-07
  • dotter

    A dotfile manager and templater written in rust 🦀

    Project mention: What "nice-to-have" CLI tools do you know? | /r/linuxquestions | 2023-02-14

    dotter-rs -- config manager with templates

  • emplace

    👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩 Synchronize installed packages on multiple machines

    Project mention: Ask HN: How do you manage dotfiles and provision machines? | | 2023-05-26

    Probably true but as an aging and burned out dev I really hoped that there would be some ready and baked solutions by mid-2023, you know.

    It's actually quite the glaring hole in dev tooling. Everyone formulating their own cloud or GIT synced adhoc scripts is a huge waste of energy IMO!

    Guess I'll have to start allocating time and check out Ansible, Chef and Puppet (I heard they can do OS- and distro-agnostic package management which sounds promising). Or, since I have no plans to use Windows for anything except gaming ever again and will stick to Macs and Linux machines, then I'll just carefully compose a few bash/zsh scripts with some package manager shims and command/arguments translation and nail that and use it to my grave.

    Still, I really expected dev tooling to be better. It's weird how each one of us has to invent their own package syncing manager.

    The only tool I was able to find is -- but I am still fighting with it and I can't even make it use config file on a custom location, and it does seem semi-defunct. Will research it a bit, still have hope it'll work but likely not. Oh well.

  • confique

    Type-safe, layered, light-weight, `serde`-based configuration library

    Project mention: Confique 0.2.0 released: a type-safe, layered configuration library | /r/rust | 2022-10-21

    I also thought about some form of integration with clap. Confique currently doesn't but yeah, it sounds like something I could add. I have to properly explore the design space there first. I created an issue on that topic:

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • autokernel

    A tool for managing your kernel configuration that guarantees semantic correctness

    Project mention: autokernel 2.0.1 | A kernel configuration tool that guarantees semantic correctness | /r/linux | 2022-11-14
  • cvars

    Configuration variables and consoles for games in Rust. An alternative to inline_tweak / const-tweaker with different tradeoffs.

    Project mention: test | /r/Test_Posts | 2023-02-07
  • cfg-rs

    A Configuration Library for Rust Applications

    Project mention: [Renew ANN] cfg-rs 0.2.8 | /r/rust | 2022-07-01
