Common *nix commands written in Rust

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
https://github.com/sharkdp/bat

du ➞ dust
https://github.com/bootandy/dust

find ➞ fd
https://github.com/sharkdp/fd

find ➞ skim
https://github.com/lotabout/skim

grep ➞ ripgrep
https://github.com/BurntSushi/ripgrep

ls ➞ exa
https://the.exa.website

ps ➞ procs
https://github.com/dalance/procs

sed ➞ sd
https://github.com/chmln/sd

time ➞ hyperfine
https://github.com/sharkdp/hyperfine

top ➞ zenith
https://github.com/bvaisvil/zenith

wc -l ➞ tokei
https://github.com/XAMPPRocky/tokei

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