In this course, Chris takes a README-driven approach to build out a Rust CLI that supports content authoring for a digital garden.

Specifically, you'll work through the first command for the CLI, writing files. You start by initializing a new Cargo binary crate by creating the write command that allows you to create files (and their contents) to the folder that you set.

What you'll learn:

  • Handle user input
  • Error handling
  • Rust move semantics
  • Rust copy semantics
  • Integration testing

Questions to Think About:

  • What makes an API "good"?
  • Why create a CLI app?
  • How should I handle errors?

    What did you like about this course?

    The course is great. But I strongly recommend that you have read the Rust Book (online version) at least up to chapter 14, before taking it.
