A command line tool to browse and search the Unicode character database.

Linux build status Windows build status

Dual-licensed under MIT or the UNLICENSE.


Please note that this command is currently a work in progress.

While it's a work in progress, to try it, you should clone this repository and build it:

$ git clone git://
$ cd rucd
$ cargo build --release
$ ./target/release/rucd --help


My line of work tends to lead me to ask questions about Unicode, its codepoints and their properties. There are various command line tools out there already that are service in pursuit of answering those questions, but they don't quite do what I want. With that said, the primary motivator for building this tool was to act as a forcing function for me to become more intimately familiar with Unicode and its various intricacies.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
