Background Rust code checker.

Terminal utilities
Our review

What we like

Continually runs in the background, watching Rust files for warnings or errors. Also runs tests. Sits in your terminal. Configurable commands and watch directories. Supports .gitignore. Can run multiple instances e.g. for different build targets. Nvim plugin available. Open source.

What we don't like

Has some overlap with what you may already have in your editor e.g. rust-analyzer in VS Code.
