Crate of the Week

I'd like to self-nomiate Edma, a terminal app for embedded database management system. It helps me a lot in manging multiple embedded databases at once, from RocksDB to Redb. The built-in bytes deserializer is so powerful and versatile.


i'd like to self-nominate faer, a linear algebra library written in pure Rust, with a focus on correctness, portability, and high performance that matches or surpasses the commonly used C/C++ libraries.


I'd like to self-nominate diesel-oci, a diesel backend and connection implementation for oracle databases.

I'd like to self-nominate git-leave, a minimal cli that explores a folder to find repositories with unsaved changes or commits that are not yet pushed to their origin. You can also specify a kind of global projects folder in your git configuration to have a quick look at your repos.

It makes adding a cache to e.g. a web service very simple by providing types for both sync and async usage, as well as providing the common knobs that you want to have (max cache size, TTL-based eviction, size-aware eviction, etc.)

Self-nomination, again. :grin: Two times my larger crates have won but this new crate is tiny. :thinking:

cargo-my-bin is a tiny and handy plugin for Cargo displaying the contents of ~/.cargo/bin/.

Today, I released v0.2.0 enhancing its documentation and functionality: it can now constrain the output to a specific type of crates such as Cargo plugins (--plugins) or crates installed by default (--default).

I wrote cargo-my-bin because:

(1) I wanted a handy tool listing installed crates working faster than the available updaters, which -at least on my system- have a several-seconds-long delay.

(2) Typing 'cargo my-bin' is so much simpler than typing 'ls $HOME/.cargo/bin'.

(3) With time, I can implement lots of handy features, such like sorting, etc.
