  • hyperfine

    A command-line benchmarking tool

    Project mention: Performance drop in Zoom meetings on Intel Graphics | | 2023-01-30

    When I'm in a Zoom meeting I have serious performance issues. This does not happen on my desktop machine (i5-6400, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, 12GB ram) though. I measured slowdown by benchmarking common stuff that I often run with hyperfine, e.g. compiling my latest LaTeX project (hyperfine --warmup 1 'latexmk -C main.tex && latexmk -pdf main.tex' -M 5):

  • hexyl

    A command-line hex viewer

    Project mention: hexyl release 0.11.0 - a colored command-line hex viewer | | 2022-12-05
  • onefetch

    Command-line Git information tool

    Project mention: [media] Onefetch v2.13 is typically 2x faster and now supports ~100 programming languages | | 2022-11-16

    Release notes:

  • grex

    A command-line tool and Rust library for generating regular expressions from user-provided test cases

    Project mention: When you have a problem and solve it using RegEx, you end up with two problems | | 2023-01-20
  • pastel

    A command-line tool to generate, analyze, convert and manipulate colors

    Project mention: The culmination of several months of work by dozens of people, Flatpak 1.14.0 is now out! | | 2022-08-22

    I'm a fan of standalone binaries statically linked to musl for small command line applications. One such CLI app that releases this way is Pastel, a comprehensive color utility.

  • fselect

    Find files with SQL-like queries

    Project mention: A list of new(ish) command line tools – Julia Evans | | 2022-04-12

    Shameless plug: a tool I wrote to manage downloads directory :)

  • jql

    A JSON Query Language CLI tool (by yamafaktory)

    Project mention: [Media] Tabled [v0.9.0] - An easy to use library for pretty print tables | | 2022-09-30

    this is awesome. I came across jql before, but your implementation looks like it has much more feature parity with jq. Are your API's primarily focused on terminal usage? or is it designed in a way that it would be easy to import & use as a rust crate?

  • diskus

    A minimal, fast alternative to 'du -sh'

    Project mention: xargs string concatination | | 2022-12-16

    I'm builing a litte wrapper for diskus. I want find files or folders using find and then calculate their size; sort it by size and pass it to fzf. I was trying to do that using xargs. The problem is: diskus only prints the file size. What I want is the file size next to the file name. xargs is not mandatory, but I'm looking for the fastest possible solution for this kind of task. This is what I have:

  • alass

    "Automatic Language-Agnostic Subtitle Synchronization"

    Project mention: How to get perfect subtitles – Guide | | 2023-01-14

    🛰 A high performance code minimap render.

  • bob

    A version manager for neovim (by MordechaiHadad)

    Project mention: nvim-tresitter on Mac M1 (arch 64) issue | | 2023-01-30

    Right now I am using bob to install Neovim, maybe you can try it too and see if it works.

    you need teip;

  • tv

  • hoard

    cli command organizer written in rust (by Hyde46)

    Project mention: I made a tool that manages all your one-liners and scripts for you, and lets you execute them quickly. | | 2022-09-01

    I use hoard which coincidentally is also written in Rust. It's for long one liners but not really a replacement for "alias"

  • trippy

    A network diagnostic tool

    Project mention: Your favourite Rust CLI utilities this year? | | 2022-09-17

    Since you mention gping, I’ll shamelessly plug Trippy, an mtr (traceroute + ping) alternative.
