cargo add

Add dependencies to a Rust project's Cargo.toml file. More information: https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/commands/cargo-add.html.

  • Add the latest version of a dependency to the current project:

cargo add {{dependency}}

  • Add a specific version of a dependency:

cargo add {{dependency}}@{{version}}

  • Add a dependency and enable one or more specific features:

cargo add {{dependency}} --features {{feature_1}},{{feature_2}}

  • Add an optional dependency, which then gets exposed as a feature of the crate:

cargo add {{dependency}} --optional

  • Add a local crate as a dependency:

cargo add --path {{path/to/crate}}

  • Add a development or build dependency:

cargo add {{dependency}} --{{dev|build}}

  • Add a dependency with all default features disabled:

cargo add {{dependency}} --no-default-features
