It requires rust-nightly but i did temporary COPR package for now.

Here is a good list of them:

The spiritual successor to FeedReader.

Temporary package in :package: Copr.

procs looks really nice
and useful “A modern replacement for ps”

Procs are quite reactive : they provide RPM, because " studied flatpak release, but it seems to be complicated…"

Not sure if this is in scope, but can these packages be published to CentOS, too? As Rust packages are self-contained, I guess they should just work™ – or am I wrong here?

So here we have some problem. We are not vendoring crates in our Rust packaging, which means you need to package hundreds of other packages before you can get your app packaged. For that, we also use features which exist only in RPM 4.15+ (which means F31+). About RHEL8, I think it has RPM 4.14 so we can’t do that either.

Ah bummer. CentOS indeed has RPM v4.14. Maybe Stream or 8.2 will bring 4.15 at some point.

Once CentOS 8.x or 9 has a recent enough version of RPM, I wonder if we should just bulk-branch our Rust crates for CentOS? We should check how many packagers are interested in supporting this – I’m happy to be counted in, as we currently have to roll our own packages for certain Rust utilities like ripgrep.

Could we have rust-analyzer? I don’t know if vscode users can install it via the ide if using rust from fedora repos, but emacs users can’t.

tre, known as tre-command in Crates. It’s an improved tree command that lets you open files listed in the diagrams as a follow-up action.
