If anyone wants to get involved, the easiest thing to do is to get on the demo site (https://www.nushell.sh/demo) and play around. Report any ideas or problems using the GitHub issue I started (https://github.com/nushell/nushell/issues/3663).
FYI, the Nushell code is written in Rust:
> Rust is a multi-paradigm programming language designed for performance and safety, especially safe concurrency. Rust is syntactically similar to C++, but can guarantee memory safety by using a borrow checker to validate references. Rust achieves memory safety without garbage collection, and reference counting is optional. -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rust_(programming_language)
My impression is that Rust has a fairly steep learning curve, so jumping into the code base could be challenging. OTOH, it might be interesting to scan some of the code just to see what it's like...
