In this post, I want to share some command line tools written in Rust, which are good alternatives to some of the original tools used in command line.

  1. exa: an alternative to ls

use exa -F

  1. lsd: another alternative to ls

use: lsd -F --icon=never

  1. ripgrep: a blazing fast grep tool

  1. delta: a pager for git, diff and grep

  1. bat: alternative to cat


  1. broot: alternative to tree

  1. tokei: alternative to cloc

Similarly, scc (but written in Go)

  1. hyperfine: commandline benchmark tool
