Rust Mkdir is a delightful remake of the venerable "mkdir" command, written in the expressive and robust Rust programming language. It aims to provide a modern, efficient, and user-friendly directory creation tool, inspired by the simplicity and elegance of the original.


  • 📂 Intuitive Syntax: Rusty Mkdir follows a familiar syntax, allowing you to effortlessly create directories by specifying the desired path or paths.

  • 🔁 Recursive Mode: Create directories and any necessary parent directories recursively with a single command.

  • ℹī¸ Verbose Output: Gain insights into the directory creation process through clear and informative messages.

  • ⚠ī¸ Error handling : Provide meaningful error messages and handle exceptional cases gracefully.

  • 🎨 Color-coded output: Enhance readability and visual appeal by using colors to output messages.

  • 🏁 Command-line flags: Support different options and flags to customize the behavior of the mkdir command.

  • 🚀 Performance optimization: Optimize the implementation for efficient execution, even with large directory structures.

##Feature To Be Added

  • 📚ī¸ Documentation: Thoroughly document the code to aid maintainability and future contributions.
