Crate of the Week

Somewhat unsurprisingly, this week's crate of the week is ripgrep. In case you've missed it, this is a grep/ag/pt/whatever search tool you use replacement that absolutely smokes the competition in most performance tests. Thanks to DanielKeep for the suggestion!

Submit your suggestions and votes for next week!
