Cargo downloads your Rust project’s dependencies and compiles your project.

Installing cargo from nightlies
Cargo has nightlies available for use. The cargo source is not always guaranteed to compile on rust master as it may lag behind by a day or two. Nightlies, however, will run regardless of this fact!
triple=x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu curl -O https://static.rust-lang.org/cargo-dist/cargo-nightly-$triple.tar.gz tar xf cargo-nightly-$triple.tar.gz ./cargo-nightly-$triple/install.sh
Nightlies are available for the following triples:
Note that if you're using the windows snapshot you will need Mingw-w64 installed as well as MSYS. The installation script needs to be run inside the MSYS shell.
Cargo requires the following tools and packages to build:
- OpenSSL headers (
libssl-devpackage on ubuntu)
Cargo can then be compiled like many other standard unix-like projects:
git clone https://github.com/rust-lang/cargo cd cargo git submodule update --init ./.travis.install.deps.sh ./configure --local-rust-root="$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.
