#rsfetch

This is a WIP rewrite of rsfetch from scratch.
I've been really unhappy with the codebase now for various reasons.
It's made development for rsfetch downright unpleasant at times.


A blazing fast (<20 ms) information fetching utility.
According to hyperfine anyways.

#Extra info

Crate deps and binary size depending on features for rsfetch:

  • music,plain_output: 20 crates, 3.7 MB
  • music,pretty_output: 42 crates, 3.9 MB
  • nomusic,plain_output: 16 crates, 3.6 MB
  • nomusic,pretty_output: 38 crates, 3.9 MB

Crates explicitely used, and why:

  • clap: CLI framework
  • mpd: completely optional, used for the feature music
  • nixinfo: contains all of the information gathering functions
  • prettytable-rs: completely optional, used for the feature pretty_output

#Features

Currently there are 2 features. They are completely optional.

  • music, this will cause nixinfo to pull in the mpd crate, and display the music info as:

artist - album (date) - title

  • pretty_output, this will cause rsfetch to pull in the prettytable-rs crate, see example above for how it looks.

#Help

$ cargo run -- --help

rsfetch 0.1.0
Phate6660 <https://pages.codeberg.org/Phate6660>

An info fetch tool written in Rust. Everything is off by default, enable what you want.

USAGE:

FLAGS:
    -c               Display the model of the CPU.
    -D               Display the name of the device.
    -d               Display the name of the distro.
    -E               Display the name of the user's editor. Must have the $EDITOR environmental variable set.
    -e               Display the user's environment. First checks for a DE, before resorting to parsing your
                     $HOME/.xinitrc for your WM.
        --help       Prints help information
    -h               Display the hostname of the device.
    -k               Display the name of the kernel.
    -m               Display free/total memory.
    -M               Display currently playing music. Only mpd is supported. Must be built with the music feature.

    -p, --packages <manager>    Display package count.
    -T, --temperature <C/F>     Display CPU temp for Raspberry Pi, must have CPU field enabled.

#TODO

  • better pretty output by either handling it myself (scary!) or replacing prettytable-rs with a lighter crate
  • implement async
  • information gathering functions are split off into a separate lib (implemented -- nixinfo)
