I’m happy to announce the release of my first crate jwalk:
- Walk is performed in parallel using rayon
- Results are streamed in sorted order
- Custom sort/filter/skip
Thanks to everyone here who’s helped answer my many rust questions! I hope this crate proves useful. I’m leaving it at
0.1.x for a while. I’m hoping for API/code/testing feedback before moving to
1.0 when everything is deemed solid.
Why use this crate?
This crate is particularly fast when you want streamed sorted results. In my tests its about 4x
walkdir speed for sorted results with metadata. Also this crate’s
process_entries callback allows you to arbitrarily sort/filter/skip entries before they are yielded.
Why not use this crate?
Directory traversal is already pretty fast. If you don’t need this crate’s speed then
walkdir provides a smaller and more tested single threaded implementation.
