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.
Compiling from Source
Cargo requires the following tools and packages to build:
- OpenSSL headers (only for Unix, this is the
libssl-devpackage on ubuntu)
First, you'll want to check out this repository
git clone --recursive https://github.com/rust-lang/cargo cd cargo
cargo already installed, you can simply run:
cargo build --release
Otherwise, you can also use a more traditional approach:
./configure 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
Running the tests
To run cargo's tests, use
cargo test. If you do not have the cross-compilers
installed locally, ignore the cross-compile test failures, or disable them by
CFG_DISABLE_CROSS_TESTS=1 cargo test.
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.
Contributing to the Docs
To contribute to the docs, all you need to do is change the markdown files in
src/doc directory. To view the rendered version of changes you have
made locally, run:
./configure make doc open target/doc/index.html
High level release notes are available as part of Rust's release notes. Cargo releases coincide with Rust releases.
