    Well, there's this project to rewrite coreutils in Rust.
  • I used the remove to remove the remove

  • I cannot interject for a moment
    Wait.. I knew that.. I was however thinking more inline with perhaps they started using uutils-coreutils instead of gnucoreutils. Its basiclly a rewrite of the coreutils in rust. github page.
  • Can somebody explain me the difference/relation between "releases" and "tags" | 2021-03-28
    But then I see that in many repositories tags and releases are the same, and that confuses me a lot! For instance, these two: + Starship: + Coreutils:
  • Linus Torvalds on where Rust will fit into Linux
    Binary bloat is pretty crazy, too.
  • Want to get Rusty quick | 2021-03-21
    Definitely take a look at the book. It's very well written and has a lot of great examples, as well as a couple good beginner projects. From there, I did a fun personal project writing an interpreter for a silly programming language made of robot noises. That got me used to what a larger scale project looks like in rust, got me dividing code into different modules and objects and got me a lot more used to how to work with the borrow checker. From there I'm starting to look at some open source projects I can contribute to when I have more time—in particular, this coreutils project looks pretty cool and has a lot of "good first bugs" when you get more comfortable in the language.
  • Things move on. What better commands have you found than the ones that you learned at first?
    Rust is becoming popular and alternatives like rg seems to have contributed to the trend. There's also a huge undertaking to write GNU coreutils in Rust:
  • The GNU coreutils have been re-implemented in Rust | 2021-03-12 | 2021-03-12
    If the project does not specifically have a policy against it, it's reasonable to wonder whether their contributors have looked at GNU coreutils code. In fact, we know that at least one of the contributors have done just that, because part of the code references GNU coreutils code. | 2021-03-12

    Using Rust also opens some great capabilities like parallelism. But this makes sense only for complex commands.
