Top 23 Rust Shell Projects

  • GitHub repo nushell

    A new type of shell

    Project mention: Nu Shell and Databricks | | 2022-01-15

    Most of the time I'm in Powershell which, thanks to Powershell Core, is now cross-platform and incredibly powerful. But I'm finding myself also using Nu more and more. In both shells I also use the Databricks CLI a lot. Want to check the status of jobs? Use the CLI. Want to upload and download data? Use the CLI. And so on.

    I like Atuin.

  • GitHub repo vivid

    A themeable LS_COLORS generator with a rich filetype datebase

    Project mention: How to get ls output to look like DT's? | | 2021-12-14

    I came across and thought it was quite nice, but it doesn't change ls colors for anything but the file names. I really like how everything in DT's videos has color output so I was wondering how he did it. Did he use some script or utility or did he configure it from scratch? If it's the latter, is there a resource I can use to learn how to do it? Thanks.

  • GitHub repo rust_cmd_lib

    Common rust command-line macros and utilities, to write shell-script like tasks in a clean, natural and rusty way

  • GitHub repo sheldon

    :bowtie: Fast, configurable, shell plugin manager

    Project mention: zcomet - Fast, Simple Zsh Plugin Manager | | 2021-09-27

    I noticed that sheldon is missing from those benchmarks. Does it not qualify as a "zsh framework"?

  • GitHub repo duckscript

    Simple, extendable and embeddable scripting language.

    Project mention: Are there any embeddable languages in rust? | | 2021-10-22

    At it's most basic you could make a really simple interpreter by just doing such a thing, and there is essentially already such a simple language like that built for/in rust called Duckscript (rust has a surprisingly large number of little embedded languages), and that would be completely and entirely sufficient for many purposes, though if you want speed then you'll need to JIT or AOT the code, which is why wasm is so handy as you can interpret or JIT (or even AOT it with wasmer) without the much larger overhead of a, for example, javascript or java embedded runtime.

  • GitHub repo atom

    Shell scripting that will knock your socks off (by adam-mcdaniel)

    Project mention: Dune: a shell by the beach! | | 2021-09-26

    It's been a few months since I've had the time to put serious work into something, but I finally found some extra days to finish this! It's inspired by my previous attempt at a shell, Atom, but this time with a BUNCH of QOL improvements! Hopefully you'll enjoy using it!!

  • GitHub repo shellfirm

    Project mention: kn 0.3 | cd faster with abbreviations | | 2021-10-15

  • GitHub repo oursh

    Your comrade through the perilous world of UNIX.

    Project mention: Nsh: A fish/bash-like Posix shell in Rust | | 2021-10-23

    There is also which wants to be POSIX compatible with its own extensions. Actually I would prefer if a new shell focuses on bash compatibility.

    If features are integrated, then I would probably want to have something about error handling because it is difficult to get right in bash even with shellcheck¹ and gets just worse when things run in parallel.


  • GitHub repo devrc

    Easy to use task runner on steroids written in Rust 🦀

    Project mention: devrc: Task automation tool with embedded Deno runtime for developers written in Rust | | 2021-03-25

    cr4sh_ (pronounced crash, because it crashes all the time) is a Linux shell fully written with Rust. This can be used for educational purposes and is a great intro to Systems Programming

    Project mention: cr4sh_ : A UNIX (only because I have not tested it on Windows) shell built with Rust | | 2021-07-27

    I was playing around with systems programming a couple of months ago and ended up writing a mini-shell program:
