A small TUI email client written in Rust.

Why the name?

This app is a front end to the CLI mail client Himalaya, and is based on a Rust TUI crate named Ratatui. Rattus Nitidus is the scientific name for the Himalayan field rat.


This is pretty much just a PoC right now, so install himalaya, run it once to generate a config and then run this. Check the command line params with --help
