Top 15 Rust System tool Projects

  • GitHub repo fd

    A simple, fast and user-friendly alternative to 'find'

    Project mention: I hate automod and have a question | | 2021-12-01

    I'm aware of them, but not familiar. I always use tools like Filelight, ncdu, and fd and do my own cleaning.

  • GitHub repo exa

    A modern replacement for ‘ls’.

    Project mention: A modern, ergonomic Unix shell configuration with Fish | | 2021-11-21

    Even though ls is a good-old standby, I prefer the aliases for ll and la that rely on exa. These aliases default to showing important information like git status and can even prevent me from needing to launch subsequent, exploratory commands.

  • Nanos

    Run Linux Software Faster and Safer than Linux with Unikernels.

  • GitHub repo coreutils

    Cross-platform Rust rewrite of the GNU coreutils

    Project mention: Rust maintainer perfectionism, or, the tragedy of Alacritty | | 2021-11-26

    I actually have experience with this specific code. I recently fixed a bug in a function that his PR also touches:

    And I have a PR to fix problems in another Rust wrapper of the same libc functions:

    It's hard to get right. Skimming the PR, the feedback looks reasonable.

  • GitHub repo tokei

    Count your code, quickly.

    Project mention: How much code are you responsible for? | | 2021-11-22

    I’ve used this

  • GitHub repo fselect

    Find files with SQL-like queries

    Project mention: What's your favorite ls and/or cd replacements, alternatives or helpers? | | 2021-11-16

    Mine alternatives/helpers bringing a new extra functionality are the following: - - Facebook PathPicker is a simple command line tool that solves the perpetual problem of selecting files out of bash output. - - Find files with SQL-like queries - - fzf is a general-purpose command-line fuzzy finder.

  • GitHub repo skim

    Fuzzy Finder in rust!

    Project mention: fd 8.3.0 released | | 2021-11-26

    There's also skim! Which is an fzf-like implemented in rust. Last time I tested them it was about 10 times faster than fzf. That was a while ago though.

  • GitHub repo watchexec

    Executes commands in response to file modifications

    Project mention: Rapid development helper: run program when anything changes | | 2021-11-12

    Another neat little tool I like to use for this is watchexec

  • Scout APM

    Scout APM: A developer's best friend. Try free for 14-days. Scout APM uses tracing logic that ties bottlenecks to source code so you know the exact line of code causing performance issues and can get back to building a great product faster.

  • GitHub repo cita

    A high performance blockchain kernel for enterprise users.

  • GitHub repo ion

    Mirror of (by redox-os)

    Project mention: Is it true that most web developers use Linux and that's what you use at your job as a web developer? | | 2021-05-22

    Fish is deliberately not POSIX compliant and it's much nicer to use. Redox is going for UNIX compliance overall, but is deliberately being even less POSIX like than fish in their ion shell.

  • GitHub repo snatch

    A simple, fast and interruptable download accelerator, written in Rust

  • GitHub repo fontfinder

    GTK application for browsing and installing fonts from Google's font archive

  • GitHub repo tv-renamer

    Mirror of

  • GitHub repo rrun

    minimalistic command launcher in rust

  • GitHub repo concurr

    Performs distributed command execution, written in Rust w/ Tokio

  • GitHub repo logram

    Utility that takes logs from anywhere and sends them to Telegram.
