Getting Started

[dependencies]

rustc_version = "0.1.*"

To always get the latest version, add this git repository to your Cargo manifest:

[dependencies.rustc_version]
git = "https://github.com/Kimundi/rustc-version-rs"

Example

// This could be a cargo build script

extern crate rustc_version;
use rustc_version::{version, version_matches, version_meta, Channel};

fn main() {
    // Assert we haven't travelled back in time
    assert!(version().major >= 1);

    // Set cfg flags depending on release channel
    match version_meta().channel {
        Channel::Stable => {
            println!("cargo:rustc-cfg=RUSTC_IS_STABLE");
        }
        Channel::Beta => {
            println!("cargo:rustc-cfg=RUSTC_IS_BETA");
        }
        Channel::Nightly => {
            println!("cargo:rustc-cfg=RUSTC_IS_NIGHTLY");
        }
        Channel::Dev => {
            println!("cargo:rustc-cfg=RUSTC_IS_DEV");
        }
    }

    // Directly check a semver version requirment
    if version_matches(">= 1.4.0") {
        println!("cargo:rustc-cfg=compiler_has_important_bugfix");
    }
}
