having been a relative late adopter of rg and only having recently started using fd, i had failed to notice these were written in rust. it seems possible that some of these tools would be more portable to the 3 platforms (may be because of them being newer / easier to modify, but also the build tools for rust seem to be oriented toward some cross-platformness?). if they do turn out to work better than their older counterparts (e.g. find, grep, etc.) on the 3 platforms, may be there is even more reason to use them with babashka. any thoughts on this speculation (similar reasoning might be applied to tools written in go perhaps)?

Heh. There's a kondo in there.

sogaiu02:03:11

yes indeed! seemed handy -- i have so many node_modules directories that could be cleaned...am hoping it might be helpful when i need to reclaim some disk space

I had considered writing a bb wrapper for rg already

I've been using rg and fd for a long while now and they're wonderful

wow, ambitious

nate14:03:49

tempted to try it, but I have years of bash muscle memory

sogaiu03:03:55

that's what i felt when i first encountered fish -- and i didn't end up using that. may be i will try this one though.
