Cargo downloads your Rust project’s dependencies and compiles your project.
Learn more at http://doc.crates.io/
Cargo is distributed by default with Rust, so if you've got
locally you probably also have
cargo installed locally.
If, however, you would like to install Cargo from the nightly binaries that are
generated, you may also do so! Note that these nightlies are not official
binaries, so they are only provided in one format with one installation method.
Each tarball below contains a top-level
install.sh script to install Cargo.
Note that if you're on Windows you will have to run the
install.sh script from
inside an MSYS shell, likely from a MinGW-64 installation.
Compiling from Source
Cargo requires the following tools and packages to build:
- OpenSSL headers (only for Unix, this is the
libssl-devpackage on ubuntu)
Cargo can then be compiled like many other standard unix-like projects:
git clone https://github.com/rust-lang/cargo cd cargo git submodule update --init python -B src/etc/install-deps.py ./configure --local-rust-root="$PWD"/rustc make make install
More options can be discovered through
./configure, such as compiling cargo
for more than one target. For example, if you'd like to compile both 32 and 64
bit versions of cargo on unix you would use:
$ ./configure --target=i686-unknown-linux-gnu,x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
Adding new subcommands to Cargo
Cargo is designed to be extensible with new subcommands without having to modify Cargo itself. See the Wiki page for more details and a list of known community-developed subcommands.
