year-progress demo - 07-26-20

Today I’d like to demo a fun little Rust cli app I wrote. It’s a little app to print a progress bar of the year called year-progress.

Being my first rust project it is dead simple. Basically just wires together a few simple rust libraries/crates:

  • clap: rust cli app framework
  • indicatif: progress bar library
  • chrono: datetime library for calculating number of days since the start of thee year

The source code is available via my sourcehut repos:
