not moo moo! meow meow!

This is a toy project to learn Rust. It is a clone of cowsay but uses a fat cat instead of a cow. Happy Lasagna!


At present the primary method of installation is to use cargo. Make sure you have cargo and rust installed and run the following command:

cargo install garfsay

Eventually I will make binaries available at, but that day is not today.


Garfsay can be called two ways.

Command line arguments

$ garfsay Somebody once told me the world was gonna roll me

Piping from stdout

echo I aint the sharpest tool in the shed | garfsay


This is very much a learning project, so please feel free to contribute in any way possible. Code contributions are welcome, as are bug reports, feature requests and help packaging the app for whatever package manager you think it should be in.
