@hund Is that as in a free fork of Newsboat in rust. Or a fork of Newsboat without being written in rust?

Why would not being written in rust be a thing to think about? Rust tend to make quite small binaries.

@sotolf A fork of Newsboat that's not written in Rust. I don't fancy Rust and it's modern, it just doesn't align with my views on good software. :)


@hund Hmm, then I know what you want, I don't see what features of rust would make it make not good software though, I could understand it if it was go, but I guess I will try not to start a religious war here, I use programs in all kinds of different langauges every day, when it's compiled you don't usually have to deal with the minutae anyway since a good program is a good program.
