Rust Kitchen Sync

The purpose of this crate is to simply find crates that implement basic functionality that you might expect in the Python Standard Library (which has everything). One can then simply pull in this crate to get them all.


The Rust Kitchen Sink

Below are crates that are generally useful, with the goal being quick, one-off "script" writing.


  • High utility / complexity crates. This value is subjective, and at the whimsy of the maintainer. An example of a crate that would not match is tokio, which provides great amounts of utility, but is also very complex.
  • Crates useful for one-off scripts. Once a project gets larger than a few thousand lines of code, it has likely outlived the usefulness of this crate.
  • Opinionated feature flags. Dependencies already have feature flags set that could be useful.


  • Conservative Size. Optimizing for size isn't a concern; this crate is gonna get big.
