This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on news.ycombinator.com

Our great sponsors
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • sd

    Intuitive find & replace CLI (sed alternative)

  • bat

    A cat(1) clone with wings.

    A while ago I came across this post: https://towardsdatascience.com/awesome-rust-powered-command-...

    I’ve also been using bat and exa which are pretty good replacements for cat and ls, respectively.

  • SonarQube

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.

  • ripgrep

    ripgrep recursively searches directories for a regex pattern while respecting your gitignore

    If you ever give ripgrep a go, stumble over something and are inclined to: please post a Discussion question[1]. "beginner" or "stupid" questions are welcome. If you can show me what you know works with grep, for example, and are curious about an equivalent rg command, that could be a good question. I might be able to give you some "fundamental" answers to it that let you reason about the tools more from first principles, but on your terms.

  • scc

    Sloc, Cloc and Code: scc is a very fast accurate code counter with complexity calculations and COCOMO estimates written in pure Go

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • frawk

    an efficient awk-like language

  • sqlitefs

    sqlite as a filesystem

  • joshuto

    ranger-like terminal file manager written in Rust

  • sd

    https://github.com/chmin/sd: "sd uses regex syntax that you already know from JavaScript and Python. Forget about dealing with quirks of sed or awk - get productive immediately."

    It would be interesting to test the ~1.5GB of JSON the author uses for the benchmark against sed, but there are no details on how many files nor what those files contain.

    When trying something relatively small and simple, sd appears to be slower than sed. It also appears to require more memory. Maybe others will have different results.

       sh # using dash not bash

  • dotfiles

    My configuration files and personal collection of scripts. (by BurntSushi)

  • fsql

    Search for files using a fun query language

  • regex

    An implementation of regular expressions for Rust. This implementation uses finite automata and guarantees linear time matching on all inputs.

    Correct. ripgrep only has Level 1 UTS#18 support: https://unicode.org/reports/tr18/#Simple_Loose_Matches

    This document outlines Unicode support more precisely for ripgrep's underlying regex engine: https://github.com/rust-lang/regex/blob/master/UNICODE.md
