I’ve been reading a lot about Rust lately. A few days ago I came across a bunch of common POSIX command line tool replacements written in Rust. Most of them are better in some way.

So, here’s my current list:

cat ➞ bat

du ➞ dust

find ➞ fd

find ➞ skim

grep ➞ ripgrep

ls ➞ exa

ps ➞ procs

sed ➞ sd

time ➞ hyperfine

top ➞ zenith

wc -l ➞ tokei

Do you know of any other good command replacement written in Rust?
