  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • documentation generator

    Rust is by far my favorite language, but I went totally blind 6 years ago, and the docs just aren't really all that accessible. The site you can barely view it, and definitely can't copy and paste things via screen reader. The docs generated by "cargo doc" are a little better, but not by a huge amount.

  • rustc-dev-guide

    A guide to how rustc works and how to contribute to it.

    I'm very confident that this would be well received! I'm not sure where the source code for rustdoc lives, but I know that the internals getting started guide is here: That would be a good place to start if you're looking into how the HTML is generated.

  • 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.

  • rustic

    Rust development environment for Emacs

  • rust

    Empowering everyone to build reliable and efficient software.

    We should all be excited for as people severely underestimate how much better the documentation reading experience could be.

  • mdBook

    Create book from markdown files. Like Gitbook but implemented in Rust

    Thanks for bringing this up! I'm working on some training material and will need to make it accessible. I'm using mdBook and would be interested in hearing how it's output is?
