Writing CLI applications in a faster language like Nim and then using them from Emacs with a little bit of Elisp seems like a good pattern.
This application doesn't do a lot of number crunching or anything like that but it is a good proof of concept. Since it's doing mostly IO, maybe a pure Elisp implementation would've been faster. I wouldn't know unless I implement that too. 🤷♂️
@njoseph FYI "coon" is a racial slur.
