cargo-install - Install a Rust binary
cargo install [OPTIONS] <CRATE> cargo install [OPTIONS] --list
Install a Rust binary This command manages Cargo's local set of install binary crates. Only packages which have [[bin]] targets can be installed, and all binaries are installed into the installation root's bin folder. The installation root is determined, in order of precedence, by --root, $CARGO_INSTALL_ROOT, the install.root configuration key, and finally the home directory (which is either $CARGO_HOME if set or $HOME/.cargo by default). There are multiple sources from which a crate can be installed. The default location is crates.io but the --git and --path flags can change this source. If the source contains more than one package (such as crates.io or a git repository with multiple crates) the argument is required to indicate which crate should be installed. Crates from crates.io can optionally specify the version they wish to install via the --vers flags, and similarly packages from git repositories can optionally specify the branch, tag, or revision that should be installed. If a crate has multiple binaries, the --bin argument can selectively install only one of them, and if you'd rather install examples the --example argument can be used as well. As a special convenience, omitting the <crate> specification entirely will install the crate in the current directory. That is, install is equivalent to the more explicit "install --path .". If the source is crates.io or --git then by default the crate will be built in a temporary target directory. To avoid this, the target directory can be specified by setting the CARGO_TARGET_DIR environment variable to a relative path. In particular, this can be useful for caching build artifacts on continuous integration systems. The --list option will list all installed packages (and their versions).
Query options --list List all installed packages (and their versions). Specifying what crate to install --vers VERS Specify a version to install from crates.io. --git URL Git URL to install the specified crate from. --branch BRANCH Branch to use when installing from git. --tag TAG Tag to use when installing from git. --rev SHA Specific commit to use when installing from git. --path PATH Filesystem path to local crate to install. Built and install options -h, --help Print this message. -j N, --jobs N Number of parallel jobs, defaults to # of CPUs. --features FEATURES Space-separated list of features to activate. --all-features Build all available features. -f, --force Force overwriting existing crates or binaries --no-default-features Do not build the default feature. --debug Build in debug mode instead of release mode. --bin NAME Only install the binary NAME. --example EXAMPLE Install the example EXAMPLE instead of binaries. --root DIR Directory to install packages into. -v, --verbose Use verbose output. -q, --quiet No output printed to stdout. --color WHEN Coloring: auto, always, never.
