Do you think we are missing an alternative of cargo-do or a related project?
Allows you to put multiple cargo commands on one line, e.g.
$ cargo do clean, update, build
cargo install cargo-do
cargo-do binary and put it in the same
cargo. So, if you are on a *nix system, you could do the following:
$ git clone https://github.com/pwoolcoc/cargo-do $ cd cargo-do $ cargo build $ cp target/cargo-do $(dirname $(which cargo))/
Verify that it is correctly installed by checking that
do is in the command list:
$ cargo --list | egrep "do$" do
Using commas in your commands
cargo-do uses commas to delimit commands, you have to be careful when
trying to run a command with a comma in it.
For example, this command will not run properly:
$ cargo do update, build, bench --bench "why are there commas, here"
It will be treated as if you did this:
$ cargo update $ cargo build $ cargo bench --bench "why are there commas $ cargo here"
Which is obviously not what you want.
Because of the magic of shell escaping, you have a couple choices on how to get around this:
$ cargo do bench --bench "why are there commas\, here"
$ cargo do bench --bench why are there commas \\, here
However you want to do it,
cargo-do will not delimit commands on an escaped comma.
