fuzzy_finder is a fuzzy finding UI for Rust CLI applications.

Does your CLI app have a big list of things your users want to search through? If so you might find this library helpful. It looks like this:

An image showing fuzzy finding through Lord of the Ring characters

It comes with a Lord of the Rings example, which you can run like this:

cargo run --example lotr
