cargo-pants is a Cargo subcommand that provides a bill of materials in a project, and any vulnerabilities that are found on those dependencies, powered by Sonatype OSS Index.
Don't you check your pants for holes? Similarly, we think you should check your app's dependencies for vulnerabilities, and that's what
cargo-pants does! As well, we provide a Bill Of Materials from parsing your
Cargo.lock file, so you can see all the dependencies you are using.
cargo-pants was built with Rust 1.31, you should likely start there.
cargo-pants is a Cargo subcommand, and can be installed using
$ cargo install cargo-pants
Once you have installed
cargo-pants, you can run it like so:
$ cargo pants
cargo pants can be run in your builds context, or ran separately. Two command line flags are supported:
$ cargo pants --lock_file /path/to/Cargo.lock
This allows you to run
cargo pants on a
Cargo.lock file anywhere on your filesystem.
If this flag is not supplied,
cargo pants will assume a local
We will also inform you of our opinions of your pants style choice:
$ cargo pants --pants_style JNCO
We are very serious about pants.
If vulnerabilities are found,
cargo-pants exits with status code 3, and prints the Bill Of Materials/Found Vulnerabilities. If there are no issues, it will exit with status code 0.
cargo audit but with more pants, you can run
cargo pants on your builds using this example config:
language: rust before_script: - cargo install --force cargo-pants script: - cargo pants
We care a lot about making the world a safer place, and that's why we created
cargo-pants. If you as well want to
speed up the pace of software development by working on this project, jump on in! Before you start work, create
a new issue, or comment on an existing issue, to let others know you are!
The code for
cargo-pants was largely written by Glenn Mohre, and we want to give ultimate thanks, kudos, congratulations to Glenn for contributing this to the community. Open Source is awesome, and you help make it better!
cargo-pants was influenced by
cargo-audit, and we acknowledge we stand on the shoulders of giants.

Phew, that was easier than I thought. Last but not least of all:
Have fun creating and using
cargo-pants and the Sonatype OSS Index, we are glad to have you here!
