       cargo-package - Assemble the local package into a distributable tarball


       cargo package [OPTIONS]


       This command will create a distributable, compressed .crate file with the source code of
       the package in the current directory. The resulting file will be stored in the
       target/package directory. This performs the following steps:

        1. Load and check the current workspace, performing some basic checks.

           ·   Path dependencies are not allowed unless they have a version key. Cargo will
               ignore the path key for dependencies in published packages. dev-dependencies do
               not have this restriction.

        2. Create the compressed .crate file.

           ·   The original Cargo.toml file is rewritten and normalized.

           ·   [patch], [replace], and [workspace] sections are removed from the manifest.

           ·   Cargo.lock is automatically included if the package contains an executable binary
               or example target. cargo-install(1) will use the packaged lock file if the
               --locked flag is used.

           ·   A .cargo_vcs_info.json file is included that contains information about the
               current VCS checkout hash if available (not included with --allow-dirty).

        3. Extract the .crate file and build it to verify it can build.

        4. Check that build scripts did not modify any source files.

       The list of files included can be controlled with the include and exclude fields in the

       See the reference <> for more
       details about packaging and publishing.


   Package Options
       -l, --list
           Print files included in a package without making one.

           Don’t verify the contents by building them.

           Ignore warnings about a lack of human-usable metadata (such as the description or the

           Allow working directories with uncommitted VCS changes to be packaged.

   Compilation Options
       --target TRIPLE
           Package for the given architecture. The default is the host architecture. The general
           format of the triple is <arch><sub>-<vendor>-<sys>-<abi>. Run rustc --print
           target-list for a list of supported targets.

           This may also be specified with the config value

       --target-dir DIRECTORY
           Directory for all generated artifacts and intermediate files. May also be specified
           with the CARGO_TARGET_DIR environment variable, or the config value
           <>. Defaults to target in the
           root of the workspace.

   Feature Selection
       When no feature options are given, the default feature is activated for every selected

       --features FEATURES
           Space or comma separated list of features to activate. These features only apply to
           the current directory’s package. Features of direct dependencies may be enabled with
           <dep-name>/<feature-name> syntax.

           Activate all available features of all selected packages.

           Do not activate the default feature of the current directory’s package.

   Manifest Options
       --manifest-path PATH
           Path to the Cargo.toml file. By default, Cargo searches for the Cargo.toml file in the
           current directory or any parent directory.

       --frozen, --locked
           Either of these flags requires that the Cargo.lock file is up-to-date. If the lock
           file is missing, or it needs to be updated, Cargo will exit with an error. The
           --frozen flag also prevents Cargo from attempting to access the network to determine
           if it is out-of-date.

           These may be used in environments where you want to assert that the Cargo.lock file is
           up-to-date (such as a CI build) or want to avoid network access.

           Prevents Cargo from accessing the network for any reason. Without this flag, Cargo
           will stop with an error if it needs to access the network and the network is not
           available. With this flag, Cargo will attempt to proceed without the network if

           Beware that this may result in different dependency resolution than online mode. Cargo
           will restrict itself to crates that are downloaded locally, even if there might be a
           newer version as indicated in the local copy of the index. See the cargo-fetch(1)
           command to download dependencies before going offline.

           May also be specified with the net.offline config value

   Miscellaneous Options
       -j N, --jobs N
           Number of parallel jobs to run. May also be specified with the config value
           <>. Defaults to the number of

   Display Options
       -v, --verbose
           Use verbose output. May be specified twice for "very verbose" output which includes
           extra output such as dependency warnings and build script output. May also be
           specified with the term.verbose config value

       -q, --quiet
           No output printed to stdout.

       --color WHEN
           Control when colored output is used. Valid values:

           ·   auto (default): Automatically detect if color support is available on the

           ·   always: Always display colors.

           ·   never: Never display colors.

           May also be specified with the term.color config value

   Common Options
       -h, --help
           Prints help information.

       -Z FLAG...
           Unstable (nightly-only) flags to Cargo. Run cargo -Z help for details.


       See the reference <>
       for details on environment variables that Cargo reads.
