Announcing: cargo_crev_reviews - Write cargo-crev reviews in GUI with a cross-platform app written in full-stack rust

CREV is a recommendation system for establishing trust in open-source code.
Cargo-crev is the review system for Rust crates on crates.io.
You can read existing code reviews on web.crev.dev cargo-crev.

Your personal reviews are the most important.
You want to know that the dependencies your program is using are not malicious or unsound.
Ideally, you want to personally review every crate in you dependencies.
If you have a boss, he will sooner or later ask you to show your reviews for all that dependencies.
With the application cargo_crev_reviews you have a basic tool to do that.

I added a Config menu to set the preferred browser and code_editor.
For the first run, if there is no xdg-open on the system, you can use the env variable export CREV_BROWSER_PATH=/usr/bin/xdg-open
I added also the links to RustSec if cargo-audit finds a dependency that has advisory.
