I published my first personal blog post in a minute. Optimizing Rust Binary Size. Check it out! arusahni.net/blog/2020/03/opti

This was my first attempt at authoring a blog post as I actually did the work. It was far easier/less imposing!

@aru This is awesome! Loved reading it. Also learned about color-backtrace, which seems very useful.

@aru very nice article, most of the tricks I knew but finally I understand why rust binaries are not already stripped by default.

The repo github.com/johnthagen/min-size also mentions some further optimizations if you are willing to use rust nightly.

@dnaka91 thanks! Yeah, I'm still trying to assess my risk tolerance, but those aren't out of the question.

@aru Oh also, you could run upx on the binary afterwards to further shrink it.
