heim logo

heim is a cross-platform Rust crate for retrieving information about system processes and various system details (such as CPU, memory, disks, networks and sensors).

heim has few key goals which define its development and public interface:

  • Async-first.
  • Cross-platform.
    Any code from heim should just work on all supported platforms. OS-specific things do exist, but API design forces users to pay attention to them.
  • Modular design.
  • Idiomatic and easy to use.

heim is an open-source project, developed in my spare time.
