    Instead of find there is fd which in my experience is faster as it uses multiple threads https://crates.io/crates/fd-find

    I'd like to use fd's features in a program I am writing. Is it possible to use a crate with a main.rs and no lib.rs as a library? Is there some trick I can do to make that work?

    fd is my very first Rust project. In fact, if you go back in (Git) history, the project was originally written in C++. I have created various other Rust command-line tools since then, but I love coming back to fd, as I personally use it the most.

  • [Fluff] Sharing My First Experience Using Emacs (And a Tip on Using Magit with "dotfile" Repositories)
    reddit.com/r/emacs | 2021-07-28
    A few days (and a lot of reading documentation and running rg and fd over Doom Emacs's source code) later, I have to say I'm impressed! I was expecting Emacs to be excellent, no surprises there; what I didn't expect was how passionate and active the community is. It's honestly inspiring seeing how much time and effort is being put into the various community projects, across the board. The only packages I knew I wanted to try were Magit and use-package, so I had a lot of fun exploring other packages. I was worried I'd quickly get overwhelmed, but the process was made so much easier with the help of: Emacs's self-documentation, Doom's source code and FAQ, the documentation provided by the individual packages and helpful answers and posts online.
  • Simple script to copy or move all files recursively in a folder structure of thousands of files except with specific extensions.
    find or fd would be my recommendation they both let you execute a command on files that match a pattern and its easy to do based on file extension
