#Rust πŸ¦€ – Time for Ferris says ! πŸ˜‹

Hi !

Ferris the crab, is the unofficial mascot for Rust.

ferris the crab

If you want to create a cool console app with Ferris holding a banner with a custom message, there is a super cool library that may help.

We need to search in the Rust community’s crate registry for ferris-says, and there it is ferris-says:

And its super easy to use. Let’s show a sample demo showing a “Hello Reactor” message.

    Finished dev [unoptimized + debuginfo] target(s) in 0.64s
     Running `target\debug\HolaMundoReactorLatam.exe`

| Hello Reactor! |

                '_   -   _'
                / '-----' \

use ferris_says::say;
use std::io::{ stdout, BufWriter };
fn main() {
let stdout = stdout();
let message = b"Hello Reactor!";
let width = message.len();
let mut writer = BufWriter::new(stdout.lock());
say(message, width, &mut writer).unwrap();
}

Super cool !

Happy coding!
