10 August 2018   134

Developers of the programming language Rust announced the opening of the State of Rust Survey 2018. The users are required to answer 16 questions that will help the team to identify the weak points of the project. According to the authors, the survey takes 10-15 minutes. The text is translated into 14 languages.

It is important for the team to know the respondents' opinion about the instruments and libraries of the ecosystem. Also, developers want feedback on their current priorities and activities in public projects.

The Rust Community Team is pleased to announce our 2018 State of Rust Survey! Whether or not you use Rust today, we want to know your opinions. Your responses will help the project understand its strengths and weaknesses and establish development priorities for the future.

The collection of responses will close on September 8, 2018, and the results of the study will be published in the official blog within 1-2 months. To keep anonymity, just do not specify an email address. 

Help Rust team and community, take part in the survey.

What is fd?

fd is a simple, fast and user-friendly alternative to find.

While it does not seek to mirror all of find's powerful functionality, it provides sensible (opinionated) defaults for 80%of the use cases.

  • Convenient syntax: fd PATTERN instead of find -iname '*PATTERN*'.
  • Colorized terminal output (similar to ls).
  • It's fast
  • Smart case: the search is case-insensitive by default. It switches to case-sensitive if the pattern contains an uppercase character.
  • Ignores hidden directories and files, by default.
  • Ignores patterns from your .gitignore, by default.
  • Regular expressions.
  • Unicode-awareness.
  • The command name is 50% shorter than find .
  • Parallel command execution with a syntax similar to GNU Parallel.
