       cargo-new - Create a new Cargo package


       cargo new [OPTIONS] PATH


       This command will create a new Cargo package in the given directory. This includes a
       simple template with a Cargo.toml manifest, sample source file, and a VCS ignore file. If
       the directory is not already in a VCS repository, then a new repository is created (see
       --vcs below).

       The "authors" field in the manifest is determined from the environment or configuration
       settings. A name is required and is determined from (first match wins):

       • Cargo config value

       •   CARGO_NAME environment variable

       •   GIT_AUTHOR_NAME environment variable

       •   GIT_COMMITTER_NAME environment variable

       • git configuration value

       •   USER environment variable

       •   USERNAME environment variable

       •   NAME environment variable

       The email address is optional and is determined from:

       • Cargo config value

       •   CARGO_EMAIL environment variable

       •   GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL environment variable

       •   GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL environment variable

       • git configuration value

       •   EMAIL environment variable

       See the reference <> for more
       information about configuration files.

       See cargo-init(1) for a similar command which will create a new manifest in an existing


   New Options
           Create a package with a binary target (src/ This is the default behavior.

       --edition EDITION
           Specify the Rust edition to use. Default is 2018. Possible values: 2015, 2018

       --name NAME
           Set the package name. Defaults to the directory name.

       --vcs VCS
           Initialize a new VCS repository for the given version control system (git, hg, pijul,
           or fossil) or do not initialize any version control at all (none). If not specified,
           defaults to git or the configuration value cargo-new.vcs, or none if already inside a
           VCS repository.

       --registry REGISTRY
           This sets the publish field in Cargo.toml to the given registry name which will
           restrict publishing only to that registry.

           Registry names are defined in Cargo config files
           <>. If not specified, the default
           registry defined by the registry.default config key is used. If the default registry
           is not set and --registry is not used, the publish field will not be set which means
           that publishing will not be restricted.

   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
           If Cargo has been installed with rustup, and the first argument to cargo begins with
           +, it will be interpreted as a rustup toolchain name (such as +stable or +nightly).
           See the rustup documentation <> for more
           information about how toolchain overrides work.

       -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.
