The Ergo Ecosystem is an effort to unify the rust ecosystem at critical sections. It is currently focused on improving Command Line Interface (CLI) ergonomics. To accomplish this it will create multiple targeted conglomeration crates. These crates do much more than simply exporting the API of their sub-crates. They implement wrapper types to unify them, as well as have tested documentation to ensure they interopate together reliably.
@autron said it best in the rust 2018 roadmap
Rust is a fantastic language for writing a Command Line Application (CLI). For the ergonomics of hacking, it has one of the best argument parsers ever, has seriously the best serialization library ever and it compiles to almost any target and goes fast when it runs. (@vitiral)
Rust has also seem some production update in the CLI space, for which it is very well-suited. This is a space where Rust’s portability, reliability, and ability to produce static binaries make it extremely attractive. We also have a number of excellent libraries already. This year, we will improve this ecosystem and pull it together into a polished, coherent package for people checking out Rust. Read @vitiral’s post and @killercup’s crate for some inspiration!
Ergo's current goal is to be a full featured CLI SDK, built from composable
and distinct sub components. You should be able to depend on the
itself or each of its sub components individually.
Ergo aims to provide the following benefits:
- A standardized API for disparate types/approaches, allowing library authors to develop simple libraries of high quality, which can then be combined into an ecosystem with a unified API and excellent ergonomics.
- A starting point for CLI and application developers for documentation and How To guides. We hope to release an Ergo Cookbook once the libraries are more stable.
- Encourage interopability, quality, and ergonomic errors among the major CLI crates in the rust ecosystem and act as a driver towards higher quality and uniformity.
The ergo ecosystem is split into multiple crates, each with the prefix
ergo crate itself is currently in alpha status. The primary author is
rewriting his CLI application using it to get the rough edges ironed out and
we are looking for feedback, contributors and leaders from the community
during this time
- ergo_fs: ergonomic filesystem operations. (beta status)
- ergo_sync: provides an
ultra-simple API for using
Synctypes, i.e. running threads and sending messages. (beta status)
- ergo_std: "generally
needed stuff" --
ordermap. This will be very few crates. It is mostly composed of things which could practically be in the std library. (beta status)
deserialization and config files and ENV variables:
- ergo_sys: deal with
interfacing with the OS. Examples currently only include signal handling
ctrlc) and randomness (
rand) but we are looking for other important crates. (alpha status)
- ergo_client: methods/types to be an HTTP client. Sub crates probably
h2and some kinds of json-rpc+soap protocol helpers.
- ergo_term: simple and ergonomic terminal rendering.
- ergo_test: one-stop-shop for core testing functionality, mocking, etc.
