    Style definitions for nice terminal layouts 👄

    I’m interested in writing something like this library for Rust: https://github.com/charmbracelet/lipgloss. How difficult would that be? Are aspects of Rust that make this kind of library harder to build than in a language like Go? I’ve written some basic Rust programs, but nothing super complex.

  • tui-rs

    Build terminal user interfaces and dashboards using Rust

    It's definitely possible. The hardest thing will probably be to make it cross-platform. You can have a look at tui for inspiration.

    The context switching struggle is real. Zigi makes context switching a thing of the past. It monitors Jira and GitHub updates, pings you when PRs need approval and lets you take fast actions - all directly from Slack!
