More about Cargo and Crates.io

2020-01-31

So far we’ve used only the most basic features of Cargo to build, run, and test our code, but it can do a lot more. In this chapter, we’ll discuss some of its other, more advanced features to show you how to do the following:

  • Customize your build through release profiles
  • Publish libraries on crates.io
  • Organize large projects with workspaces
  • Install binaries from crates.io
  • Extend Cargo using custom commands

Cargo can do even more than what we cover in this chapter, so for a full explanation of all its features, see its documentation.
