A browser interface for working through rustc errors and running cargo commands.
cargo-gui from crates.io:
$ cargo install cargo-gui
If you want to contribute to the project, you'll want to install from the github repository instead:
git clone https://github.com/eignnx/cargo-gui.git
Start the Server
Next, go to your cargo project directory and start the
$ cd path/to/my-cargo-project $ cargo gui Your `cargo-gui` app is running at http://localhost:9345/site/index.html
If you want to contribute to the project, and have installed from the github repository, start the server like this instead:
$ cd path/to/my-cargo-project $ cargo run --manifest-path /path/to/cargo-gui/Cargo.toml Your `cargo-gui` app is running at http://localhost:9345/site/index.html
Opening the Dashboard
Now open that link in your web browser: http://localhost:9345/site/index.html
In the Dashboard
You can click the
Check buttons to invoke the corresponding
cargo commands (i.e.
cargo run in your project directory).
Run doesn't support streaming output from your executables! If you're trying to run a never-ending task (like a server), you will just never get a response back unless there's an error. This is because
cargo-gui is waiting for your program to finish before showing you the output. See this github issue if you have suggestions on how to fix this!
If building, testing, or checking your program results in compilation errors, they will be displayed in a paginated format below. You can used the pagination navbar to see the
Last compilation errors. You can also use the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard to go to the next and previous errors.
