Sponsoring MIT licensed Gitter Continuous integration Dependabot enabled

This GitHub Action runs specified cargo command on a Rust language project.

Example workflow

on: [push]

name: CI

jobs:
  build_and_test:
    name: Rust project
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v2
      - uses: actions-rs/toolchain@v1
        with:
          toolchain: stable
      - uses: actions-rs/cargo@v1
        with:
          command: build
          args: --release --all-features

See additional recipes here.

Use cases

Note that this Action is not required usually and you can just use run step instead as in example below:

jobs:
  build_and_test:
    name: Rust project
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v2
      - uses: actions-rs/toolchain@v1
        with:
          toolchain: stable
      - run: cargo build --release --all-features

Why would you want to use this Action instead:

  1. Transparent cross installation and execution with use-cross: true input enabled
  2. Warnings and errors issued by cargo will be displayed in GitHub UI

Inputs

Name Required Description Type Default
command βœ“ Cargo command to run, ex. check or build string
toolchain Rust toolchain name to use string
args Arguments for the cargo command string
use-cross Use cross instead of cargo bool false

Toolchain

By default this Action will call whatever cargo binary is available in the current virtual environment.

You can use actions-rs/toolchain to install specific Rust toolchain with cargo included.

Cross-compilation

In order to make cross-compile an easy process, this Action can install cross tool on demand if use-cross input is enabled; cross executable will be invoked then instead of cargo automatically.

All consequent calls of this Action in the same job with use-cross: true input enabled will use the same cross installed.

on: [push]

name: ARMv7 build

jobs:
  linux_arm7:
    name: Linux ARMv7
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v2
      - uses: actions-rs/toolchain@v1
        with:
          toolchain: stable
          target: armv7-unknown-linux-gnueabihf
          override: true
      - uses: actions-rs/cargo@v1
        with:
          use-cross: true
          command: build
          args: --target armv7-unknown-linux-gnueabihf
