milcheck, a binary to display mirrorlist status data in the terminal

Hi,

Because I recently learned Rust, I wanted to create something with it. So I created "milcheck".

https://image.petitmur.beer/milcheck.png

One of my need as an Archlinux user, is to regularly check the status of the mirrors presents in my mirrorlist before a system upgrade (as recommended in the official documentation).

It is not a ranking mirrorlist utility.
It just reads your `/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist`, fetch the corresponding data from the official mirror status page: https://www.archlinux.org/mirrors/status/ and display it.
A quick way to check the status of your mirrors. Nothing more.

If you are interested, you can find it here: https://github.com/doums/milcheck

Hope it will be useful (just a little) smile

Thanks for this. Very useful, so I decided to make an AUR package:

Hi!

Thanks you @Zod @dglt @judd1 and @figue.
Now I'm the maintainer of the AUR package, I just updated it ! It was outdated, now the colors are not set arbitrary and the color palette of your terminal will be used instead (ANSI colors).

Tell me if you encounter any problems smile

It was a pleasure. Thanks for this piece of software. Colours look pretty well.
