Installation

Using cargo install

If you have a recent version of cargo, you can use cargo install to get all the tools provided by cargo-edit in one simple step:

$ cargo install cargo-edit

(Please check cargo's documentation to learn how cargo install works and how to set up your system so it finds binaries installed by cargo.)

Without cargo install

You can build all commands of cargo-edit from the source available on GitHub:

$ git clone https://github.com/killercup/cargo-edit.git
$ cd cargo-edit
$ cargo build --release

Once you have the executables, you can move them to a directory in your $PATH, e.g.

$ cp target/release/cargo-* ~/.bin/

You should be able to use the new Cargo subcommands now.

Available Subcommands

cargo add

Add new dependencies to your Cargo.toml. When no version is specified, cargo add will try to query the latest version's number from crates.io.

Examples

$ # Add a specific version
$ cargo add regex@0.1.41 --dev
$ # Query the latest version from crates.io and adds it as build dependency
$ cargo add gcc --build
$ # Add a non-crates.io crate
$ cargo add local_experiment --path=lib/trial-and-error/
$ # Also
$ cargo add lib/trial-and-error/

Usage

$ cargo add --help
Usage:
    cargo add <crate> [--dev|--build|--optional] [--ver=<semver>|--git=<uri>|--path=<uri>] [options]
    cargo add (-h|--help)
    cargo add --version

Options:
    -D --dev                Add crate as development dependency.
    -B --build              Add crate as build dependency.
    --ver=<semver>          Specify the version to grab from the registry (crates.io).
                            You can also specify versions as part of the name, e.g
                            `cargo add bitflags@0.3.2`.
    --git=<uri>             Specify a git repository to download the crate from.
    --path=<uri>            Specify the path the crate should be loaded from.
    --optional              Add as an optional dependency (for use in features.)
    --manifest-path=<path>  Path to the manifest to add a dependency to.
    -h --help               Show this help page.
    --version               Show version.
    --upgrade=<method>      Choose method of semantic version upgrade. Must be one of
                            "none" (exact version), "patch" (`~` modifier), "minor"
                            (`^` modifier, default), or "all" (`>=`).

Add a dependency to a Cargo.toml manifest file.  If <crate> is a github or gitlab repository URL, or
a local path, `cargo add` will try to automatically get the crate name and set the
appropriate `--git` or `--path` value.
