Open, NormalPublic

Description

I have already packaged it D6767, and all people interested in TLDR client agreed that this one is the best T8138.

That's not how I interpret the feedback on T8138: tldr. Your claim that Tealdeer is more actively maintained is false. TLDR has a newer release and more frequent history of releases. Fastest is also relative. 10ms vs 150ms is hardly noticeable on the CLI.

What I meant about more actively maintained is number of commits and features they bring. I don't know why they haven't tagged a new release yet, I need to bother them about it.
Yeah, speed is probably not a factor.
I forgot to mention the reason I prefer Rust client over Python one - autocompletion, which the latter lacks.

Could you please consider accepting this? In the original request many people showed interest in a TLDR client, not specifically on python one. And most people agreed that Rust one is superior.
You have agreed to include the other one and this has simplier build process, has no runtime dependencies and has any build documentation.
As Solus needs only one TLDR client could you accept inclusion of one that most deemed superior?

Like I said, not at all how I interpret their feedback.

If so do you want to include Python one over Rust? After using it for 2 weeks I simply think it lacks autocomplete. But I can post the diff of Python one right away.

I don't have a vested interest in either client. So far the only consensus I have seen from people who want a client is that they want a client.

FWIW there has been a new release of Tealdeer one hour ago, although

The binaries have been cross compiled using the musl libc. They are a bit experimental, please let me know if you experience issues with them!

This is a non-issue as we build applications on our own.

Like @DataDrake, I'm not really invested in either. The rust client has the benefit of just being able to be compiled without additional runtime dependencies (python packages), but really it's up to you folks.

I created a poll that I'll have open until Monday night

Consensus has been reached, Rust client will be included over Python client. Thanks all.
