neueCoreutils is basically the The GNU Coreutils written in Swift.

Fair warning, not all utilities are ported to Swift, and some of them are written in C, like sha256sum and uname.

The end goal is to have a fully functioning coreutils system completely written in Swift.

Also am a complete noob. So don’t @me for the bad code.

Coded and tested on Fedora Workstation 35.


I was bored.

How do I install this?

By my gracious hands, every tarball that you download from [Releases] has a simple to use script to install neueCoreutils.

How do I compile this?

Check the build instructions page.
