Confused here going through this Rust book...

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

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • Cargo

    The Rust package manager

    --target-dir or the CARGO_TARGET_DIR environment variable will let you specify the directory for all generated files, but, for just the output binary itself, the --out-dir option is not API-stabilized yet, so you need a nightly-channel toolchain to use it.

  • just

    🤖 Just a command runner

    In the mean time, the usual solution is the same as is currently done for any other post-build processing... instead of running cargo build directly, use something like just or cargo-make which can run cargo build as part of a more involved process and then copy the resulting binary to where you want it.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
