UwUfetch is a simple tool similar to Screenfetch and Neofetch that gathers and displays some basic system information in a terminal. The initial public version can show you your systems "OWOS", kernel, "CPUWU", "WAM" and, most importantly, "UWUPTIME". It will also show some ASCII art that may or may not reflect the GNU/Linux distribution it is running on.
UwUfetch is written in C. This differes from ScreenFetch, ScreenFetch is just a 6470 line long Bash-script.
UwUfetch version 1.0 was released on March 10th, 2021. It had support for showing system information about Nyalpine, Nyarch Linuwu, Nyartix Linuwu, Debinyan, Fedowa, GentOwO, Miwint, Myanjawo, Pop OwOs, UwUntu, and OwOid; Plus Nyandroid; FweeBSD, and OwOpenBSD. More distributions will likely be added in future releases.
There are currently only UwUfetch packages available for something called "Arch" (in AUR). Those using other distributions will have to acquire the source code and compile it. That's easy if you have
git clone https://github.com/TheDarkBug/uwufetch.git cd uwufetch make build
uwufetch binary and some ASCII files it uses can then be installed with:
sudo make install
Note that the
Makefile is currently stupid; it will try to
sudo make install after compiling if you just run
make. You have to run
make build if you just want to compile UwUfetch.
Verdict And Conclusion
Similar programs like
neofetch will show a bit more information about your system and both support more operating systems than
uwufetch is the only one that will shwo you your
UWUPTIME appears to be the same as regular
uptime, so this may or may not be a huge advantage. You'll have to judge that for yourself.
