The reader and input stack have been ported, which is basically everything. There’s still some entry points in C++ (PR being reviewed) and test helper binary (might make a good external contribution as it’s entirely self-contained), but almost all of the C++ is gone, and with it large chunks of the FFI.

Now we just have the second 90% to go - making sure this rewritten fish is portable and distributable!

Love to see more stuff written in Rust on 08 Jan 2024 23:00 collapse

It should then be easier to package in nix IINM.

77k lines rewritten… that’s nuts!
