    The Rust package registry

    I don't know how big is, but ability to have a local proxy of just most recent versions of all crates would be worth a lot to me.

  • devdocs

    API Documentation Browser

    Also look at (includes offline

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • panamax

    Mirror rustup and repositories, for offline Rust and cargo usage.

    It looks like panamax is also a program that can be used to mirror a local crates-io registry to ones device. And using .cargo/config one can point to it.

  • rust-playground

    The Rust Playground

  • zeal

    Offline documentation browser inspired by Dash

  • cargo-docset

    Cargo subcommand to generate a Dash/Zeal docset for your Rust packages.

    There's cargo docset for that. It's not quite as automated, but workable for important crates.

  • cargo-cacher

    A caching server for crates + cargo

    I had my own full local mirror with a few years back (repeated downloads in docker builds -.-). Iirc, it was 43 GB. I should probably donate some money for doing that… (To who, actually? Mozilla? Rust foundation?)
