GarfsayCreated: Mon Dec 28 2020 11:59:00 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time) Tags: software,computing,rust,hacking,unixtools
So here I am, a week or so into being a Rustacean™. To experiment, I whipped up a little program that takes a string and then reprints it to the console with an ascii drawing of a popular cartoon cat. Basically
cowsay but less
moo moo and more
I was all set to walk away when a friend submitted a PR to allow the use of
args. My original implementation only supported piping, but now
garfsay is a full-on
cowsay clone. Then, I thought, why keep the fun for myself, and I bundled that bad boy up and pushed it to
crates.io where it awaits installation by anyone who has a use for a program with no use.
If you have Rust installed on your machine, feel free to
cargo install garfsay, or otherwise stay tuned here and eventually I’ll post a binary.
Anyway, feel free to check the project out at it’s new home
