update-notifier 0.1.9

Library to notify you if there are any newer versions available on the registry

Update-notifier crates.io status

Update-notifier will notify your Rust CLI's users if there is an update available! You also have the freedom of setting the interval at which it will notify your users. This was built based on NPM's update-notifier


To use update-notifier, add this to your Cargo.toml:

update-notifier = "0.1"

How to use

update-notifier::check_version takes the name and current version of your crate, along with an interval. It will print directly to stdout if the interval has been exceeded and an update is available

use update_notifier::check_version;
fn main() {
    // Will notify users in one day intervals if an update is available
    check_version(env!("CARGO_PKG_NAME"), env!("CARGO_PKG_VERSION"), Duration::from_secs(60 * 60 * 24));
