Rockfetch

A fetch script for completely aestethic purposes.

Installation

Manual compilation

This is the preferred method, as it allows for configuration.

  • Install Cargo and Rust (at least 1.58.0). The preferred way to do so is trough rustup.
  • Execute cargo build --release
  • You will find the built executable in target/release/. Feel free to strip it with strip target/release/rockfetch

Using cargo install

This method is simpler, yet I would suggest the use manual compilation as it allows for configuration, while using cargo install you are forced with the defaults.

With this method simply run the command cargo install rockfetch, and you're all set.

Configuration

The configurations happens at compile time, simply edit the file: Config.toml. The configuration is always stored in the binary

Currently supported operating systems

Linux

  • Arch | Endeavour
  • Artix
  • Fedora
  • Ubuntu
  • Void

Note: Fedora

Since version 0.1.6, to count packages on Fedora, rockfetch will attempt to read the /var/cache/dnf/packages.db database with rusqlite (sqlite3).

Since version 0.1.7, to count packages on Fedora, rockfetch will attempt to read the /var/lib/rpm/rpmdb.sqlite database with rusqlite (sqlite3).

This is default behaviour.

If you'd prefer rockfetch to behave in the old way, calling the rpm command instead of directly reading RPM's package database, disable the fedora-sqlite feature by compiling with the flag: --no-default-features or by editing the Cargo.toml file manually (removing "fedora-sqlite" from default = [...]).
