🏍️ In episode #3, Ellie Huxtable walked us through Atuin, a Rust CLI tool she created to boost your CTRL+R shell history search..

🐢 Atuin replaces your existing shell history with an SQLite database and records additional context for your commands to give you a faster and better search of your shell history! Additionally, Atuin (optionally) syncs your shell history between your machines! Learn more at

You can find the full episode on YouTube or your favorite podcast client.

Why Rust for CLIs?

What's next?

I will record the next episode live on YouTube on October 2, 2023 at 19 UTC. I will interview Keavon Chambers and Dennis Kobert about Graphite, a free and open-source raster and vector graphics editor written in Rust.

I plan to do at least one episode every month.

Follow me on YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn and Mastodon to stay up to date with the latest news and join the next live episodes: we are always happy to answer questions from the chat during the live stream.
