Yesterday I stumbled accross paru that is a AUR helper for #archlinux. It is really nice to see that #Rust/#Rustlang created a wave of modern #CLI tools with a modern touch. Other examples are #starship, #nushell, #ripgrep, #bat, #delta...Thanks to the whole #Rust community.
Have a look at paru: https://github.com/morganamilo/paru
I'm making progress on my #Rust crate oxidized-mdf that parses MSSQL server files. You are wondering why someone wants to pares these files? That's because I want to parse data from a proprietary Windows application for my #Nextcloud plugin spgverien.
It's a rewrite of the #dotnet library OrcaMDF and the rewrite enables me to parse MDF files with the parser tool of my #nextcloud plugin spgverein. https://gitlab.com/schrieveslaach/nextcloud-spgverein-app
This is required to support SPG-Verein 4 that is a proprietary Windows program. Thanks to #foss I could provide cloud access to the data.
Maybe I will integrate the crate into #nushell as well.
Hopefully I have some time in the next couple of days to release the plugin.
Number crunching in #Rust makes a lot of fun. My PR for #Peroxide got accepted: https://github.com/Axect/Peroxide/commit/c67f4334b3839e8cabc8a265b9fdb99c9d0fd67a
