A Krabby-gotchi (via the terminal)

(terminal app preview)

her name is sally^

What is this?

Imagine a future where everyone had a crustacious companion.
A world devoid of conflict.
I present humbly to thee,

A Krabby-gotchi 🦀

(tamagotchi but crab)

Ok but what really is this?

The krabs made me do it.

Ok but what really really is this?

Learning rust.
Hopefully will have a terminal tamagotchi by the end because tamagotchis are expensive and crabs are free if you are near an ocean.
