Rush

A user-focused shell, implemented in Rust.

Mission

Rush is a shell designed to be as user-friendly as possible, both for longtime users of other popular shells, as well as complete beginners who are just learning how to interact with their computer through the CLI. It largely aims to accomplish this by either modifying, replacing, or disposing of the often-archaic conventions of the traditionally-popular shells.

Goals

  • Native shell scripting using Rhai instead of a custom shell language
  • Scripting API for interoperability with other popular scripting languages
  • Support for easy coloration of input and output
  • Powerful built-in commands with consistent structure and usage
  • Event-based plugin API for 3rd-party feature development
  • Out-of-box fuzzy finding, autocompletion, and command history
  • Robust aliasing system for commands and executables
  • Simple customization of shell visuals (prompt, coloration, etc) & debug/verbose output
  • Straightforward interface to interact with/modify the PATH variable
