  • alacritty

    A cross-platform, OpenGL terminal emulator.

    Project mention: How do you manage your git commits? | | 2023-02-04

    As for the terminal itself honestly it just comes with time. Really go trough some effort to make your terminal your own; find what shell emulators you like I use one called alacrity myself. Take the time to customize it to your liking. For me, thats adding tools like cgywin to my windows; or swapping shells on linux entirely to something like fish. Customizing the look with tools like starship

  • windows-rs

    Rust for Windows

    Project mention: Best windows stubs | | 2023-01-27

    Regarding the issue of HINSTANCE and SOCKET, it's been discussed on but there haven't seem to be a conclusion. Also, I believe windows-sys intentionally does not provide any type safety -- the higher level windows crate does wrap the handles into something that you cannot do arithmetic on.
