cargo edit

This tool extends Cargo to allow you to add, remove, and upgrade dependencies by modifying your Cargo.toml file from the command line.

Contribution

Thanks for your interest - we gratefully welcome contributions.

Questions can be asked in issues, or on Gitter.

To help us help you get pull requests merged quickly and smoothly, open an issue before submitted large changes. Please keep the contents of pull requests and commits short. Commit messages should include the intent of the commit.

cargo-edit has a moderately comprehensive test suite. Contributions that add/improve tests are awesome. Please add tests for every change.

cargo-edit uses rustfmt for formatting and clippy for linting.

Installation

Ensure that you have a fairly recent version of rust/cargo installed. On Ubuntu you would also need to install libssl-dev and pkg-config packages.

$ cargo install cargo-edit

If you wish to use a bundled version of openssl:

$ cargo install cargo-edit --features vendored-openssl

Compiler support: requires rustc 1.44+

(Please check cargo's documentation to learn how cargo install works and how to set up your system so it finds binaries installed by cargo.)

Install a sub-set of the commands with cargo install -f --no-default-features --features "<COMMANDS>", where <COMMANDS> is a space-separated list of commands; i.e. add rm upgrade for the full set.

Available Subcommands

cargo add

Add new dependencies to your Cargo.toml. When no version is specified, cargo add will try to query the latest version's number from crates.io.

Examples

$ # Add a specific version
$ cargo add [email protected] --dev
$ # Query the latest version from crates.io and adds it as build dependency
$ cargo add gcc --build
$ # Add a non-crates.io crate
$ cargo add local_experiment --path=lib/trial-and-error/
$ # Add a non-crates.io crate; the crate name will be found automatically
$ cargo add lib/trial-and-error/
$ # Add a crates.io crate with a local development path
$ cargo add my_helper --vers=1.3.1 --path=lib/my-helper/
$ # Add a renamed dependency
$ cargo add thiserror --rename error

cargo upgrade

Upgrade dependencies in your Cargo.toml to their latest versions.

To specify a version to upgrade to, provide the dependencies in the <crate name>@<version> format, e.g. cargo upgrade [email protected]~0.9.0 [email protected]>=0.9,<2.0.

This command differs from cargo update, which updates the dependency versions recorded in the local lock file (Cargo.lock).

Examples

# Upgrade all dependencies for the current crate
$ cargo upgrade
# Upgrade docopt (to ~0.9) and serde (to >=0.9,<2.0)
$ cargo upgrade [email protected]~0.9 [email protected]>=0.9,<2.0
# Upgrade regex (to the latest version) across all crates in the workspace
$ cargo upgrade regex --workspace
# Upgrade all dependencies except docopt and serde
$ cargo upgrade --exclude docopt serde

Usage

$ cargo-upgrade upgrade --help
cargo-upgrade [..]
Upgrade dependencies as specified in the local manifest file (i.e. Cargo.toml)

USAGE:
    cargo upgrade [OPTIONS] [DEPENDENCY]...

ARGS:
    <DEPENDENCY>...    Crates to be upgraded

OPTIONS:
        --all                     [deprecated in favor of `--workspace`]
        --allow-prerelease        Include prerelease versions when fetching from crates.io (e.g.
                                  0.6.0-alpha')
        --dry-run                 Print changes to be made without making them
        --exclude <EXCLUDE>       Crates to exclude and not upgrade
    -h, --help                    Print help information
        --manifest-path <PATH>    Path to the manifest to upgrade
        --offline                 Run without accessing the network
    -p, --package <PKGID>         Package id of the crate to add this dependency to
        --skip-compatible         Only update a dependency if the new version is semver incompatible
        --to-lockfile             Upgrade all packages to the version in the lockfile
    -V, --version                 Print version information
        --workspace               Upgrade all packages in the workspace
    -Z <FLAG>                     Unstable (nightly-only) flags [possible values: preserve-
                                  precision]

This command differs from `cargo update`, which updates the dependency versions recorded in the
local lock file (Cargo.lock).

If `<dependency>`(s) are provided, only the specified dependencies will be upgraded. The version to
upgrade to for each can be specified with e.g. `[email protected]` or `[email protected]>=0.9,<2.0`.

Dev, build, and all target dependencies will also be upgraded. Only dependencies from crates.io are
supported. Git/path dependencies will be ignored.

All packages in the workspace will be upgraded if the `--workspace` flag is supplied. The
`--workspace` flag may be supplied in the presence of a virtual manifest.

If the '--to-lockfile' flag is supplied, all dependencies will be upgraded to the currently locked
version as recorded in the Cargo.lock file. This flag requires that the Cargo.lock file is up-to-
date. If the lock file is missing, or it needs to be updated, cargo-upgrade will exit with an error.
If the '--to-lockfile' flag is supplied then the network won't be accessed.

cargo set-version

Examples

# Set the version to the version 1.0.0

# Bump version to the next minor
$ cargo set-version --bump minor
# Bump version to the next patch

cargo-set-version [..]

                                  release, rc, beta, alpha]
        --dry-run                 Print changes to be made without making them
        --exclude <EXCLUDE>       Crates to exclude and not modify
    -h, --help                    Print help information
    -m, --metadata <METADATA>     Specify the version metadata field (e.g. a wrapped libraries
