Dabbling with Rust

I liked rust when I tried it last year around May. I also did some contributions to cargo which is the package manager for Rust. I wanted to do something in rust, something small to do over in the weekend. I finally decided to mimic unix’s ls (List files). So the program will just print the details of the files and directories with the path, size and modified time. Also display the total block size.

What if you lose your data

You have been working day in and day out. All your important documents are there in your hard disk. For most of us, ctrl + s (Save) is enough to save us from the trouble of having to deal with the loss of data. That’s bad, because you can still get into trouble. You might ask how, then picture this, what if your hard disk gets corrupted ? What if you delete your files accidently ? What if you lose your laptop.

Tars my first bot

In one of my earlier posts I had written about greenkeeper the app that automates dependency updates. I will start with a brief explanation about it, it will send you a pull request(PR) everytime there is a newer version of your depenedencies available, that are specified in package.json. Then you can decide to merge the PR or not. That’s basically what it does. This is just one half of the automation right. You have to manually merge those PR’s.
