Scrutch, search crates from the command line


I’ve spent few hours developing a microscopic command line utility to look for crates directly from the command line: scruch.

I have been using it quite a lot recently and I thought it might be useful for others too. It is very minimal: makes a search using the input string and displays the result in a compact or verbose form depending on an optional flag, using colors to (hopefully) ease the readability.

There is an example of the output (without colors) on the github page.


cargo has a search subcommand. Perhaps you could extend it to have your features?


Thanks! I did not know, I will look into it
