Including a cargo command as a dev dependency

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/rust

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • Onboard AI - ChatGPT with full context of any GitHub repo.
  • WorkOS - The modern API for authentication & user identity.
  • cargo-xtask

    As someone else said just is good for that job, or you could implement an xtask helper for these things and setup a suitable development environment with that: https://github.com/matklad/cargo-xtask/

  • cargo-make

    Rust task runner and build tool.

    I use just myself, and I personally don't want projects' codebase to decide when something gets cargo installed on my system. For people who feel that's more acceptable, I'll note that cargo-make has first class support for the idea of expressing a task that depends on a cargo plugin:

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.
