      Cool project. Just for the record, I explored Crystal in the context of YaST (which is written in Ruby) some Hack Week editions ago. I expect a lot has changed since. https://lists.opensuse.org/archives/list/yast-devel@lists.opensuse.org/message/6ZTAX5PQYGOPIM63DNJGHDY2G5JKN75C/

        That's interesting! Yes, Crystal has made some steps forward, including Windows support add-emoji of course a full rewrite of YaST is not so easy

          We never aimed for a full rewrite of YaST. But we dreamed with rewriting some of the YaST libraries like Y2Storage.
