- Perform checks, create a
.cratefile and upload it to the registry:
- Perform checks, create a
.cratefile but don't upload it (equivalent of
cargo publish --dry-run
- Specify the name of the registry to use (registry names can be defined in the config - the default is https://crates.io):
cargo publish --registry name
cargo publish [options]
This command will create a distributable, compressed .crate file with the source code of the package in the current directory and upload it to a registry. The default registry is <https://crates.io>. This performs the following steps:
1. Performs a few checks, including:
· Checks the package.publish key in the manifest for restrictions on which registries you are allowed to publish to.
2. Create a .crate file by following the steps in cargo-package(1).
3. Upload the crate to the registry. The server will perform additional checks on the crate.
4. The client will poll waiting for the package to appear in the index, and may timeout. In that case, you will need to check for completion manually. This timeout does not affect the upload.
This command requires you to be authenticated with either the --token option or using cargo-login(1).
See the reference <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/publishing.html> for more details about packaging and publishing.
Perform all checks without uploading.
- --token token
API token to use when authenticating. This overrides the token stored in the credentials file (which is created by cargo-login(1)).
Cargo config <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html> environment variables can be used to override the tokens stored in the credentials file. The token for crates.io may be specified with the CARGO_REGISTRY_TOKEN environment variable. Tokens for other registries may be specified with environment variables of the form CARGO_REGISTRIES_NAME_TOKEN where NAME is the name of the registry in all capital letters.
Don’t verify the contents by building them.
Allow working directories with uncommitted VCS changes to be packaged.
- --index index
The URL of the registry index to use.
- --registry registry
Name of the registry to publish to. Registry names are defined in Cargo config files <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html>. If not specified, and there is a package.publish <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/manifest.html#the-publish-field> field in Cargo.toml with a single registry, then it will publish to that registry. Otherwise it will use the default registry, which is defined by the registry.default <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html#registrydefault> config key which defaults to crates-io.
By default, the package in the current working directory is selected. The -p flag can be used to choose a different package in a workspace.
-p spec, --package spec
The package to publish. See cargo-pkgid(1) for the SPEC format.
- --target triple
Publish for the given architecture. The default is the host architecture. The general format of the triple is <arch><sub>-<vendor>-<sys>-<abi>. Run rustc --print target-list for a list of supported targets. This flag may be specified multiple times.
This may also be specified with the build.target config value <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html>.
Note that specifying this flag makes Cargo run in a different mode where the target artifacts are placed in a separate directory. See the build cache <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/guide/build-cache.html> documentation for more details.
- --target-dir directory
Directory for all generated artifacts and intermediate files. May also be specified with the CARGO_TARGET_DIR environment variable, or the build.target-dir config value <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html>. Defaults to target in the root of the workspace.
The feature flags allow you to control which features are enabled. When no feature options are given, the default feature is activated for every selected package.
See the features documentation <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/features.html#command-line-feature-options> for more details.
- -F features, --features features
Space or comma separated list of features to activate. Features of workspace members may be enabled with package-name/feature-name syntax. This flag may be specified multiple times, which enables all specified features.
Activate all available features of all selected packages.
Do not activate the default feature of the selected packages.
- --manifest-path path
Path to the Cargo.toml file. By default, Cargo searches for the Cargo.toml file in the current directory or any parent directory.
- --frozen, --locked
Either of these flags requires that the Cargo.lock file is up-to-date. If the lock file is missing, or it needs to be updated, Cargo will exit with an error. The --frozen flag also prevents Cargo from attempting to access the network to determine if it is out-of-date.
These may be used in environments where you want to assert that the Cargo.lock file is up-to-date (such as a CI build) or want to avoid network access.
Prevents Cargo from accessing the network for any reason. Without this flag, Cargo will stop with an error if it needs to access the network and the network is not available. With this flag, Cargo will attempt to proceed without the network if possible.
Beware that this may result in different dependency resolution than online mode. Cargo will restrict itself to crates that are downloaded locally, even if there might be a newer version as indicated in the local copy of the index. See the cargo-fetch(1) command to download dependencies before going offline.
May also be specified with the net.offline config value <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html>.
- -j N, --jobs N
Number of parallel jobs to run. May also be specified with the build.jobs config value <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html>. Defaults to the number of logical CPUs. If negative, it sets the maximum number of parallel jobs to the number of logical CPUs plus provided value. If a string default is provided, it sets the value back to defaults. Should not be 0.
Build as many crates in the dependency graph as possible, rather than aborting the build on the first one that fails to build.
For example if the current package depends on dependencies fails and works, one of which fails to build, cargo publish -j1 may or may not build the one that succeeds (depending on which one of the two builds Cargo picked to run first), whereas cargo publish -j1 --keep-going would definitely run both builds, even if the one run first fails.
- -v, --verbose
Use verbose output. May be specified twice for “very verbose” output which includes extra output such as dependency warnings and build script output. May also be specified with the term.verbose config value <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html>.
- -q, --quiet
Do not print cargo log messages. May also be specified with the term.quiet config value <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html>.
- --color when
Control when colored output is used. Valid values:
- auto (default): Automatically detect if color support is available on the terminal.
- always: Always display colors.
- never: Never display colors.
May also be specified with the term.color config value <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html>.
If Cargo has been installed with rustup, and the first argument to cargo begins with +, it will be interpreted as a rustup toolchain name (such as +stable or +nightly). See the rustup documentation <https://rust-lang.github.io/rustup/overrides.html> for more information about how toolchain overrides work.
- --config KEY=VALUE or PATH
Overrides a Cargo configuration value. The argument should be in TOML syntax of KEY=VALUE, or provided as a path to an extra configuration file. This flag may be specified multiple times. See the command-line overrides section <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html#command-line-overrides> for more information.
- -C PATH
Changes the current working directory before executing any specified operations. This affects things like where cargo looks by default for the project manifest (Cargo.toml), as well as the directories searched for discovering .cargo/config.toml, for example. This option must appear before the command name, for example cargo -C path/to/my-project build.
This option is only available on the nightly channel <https://doc.rust-lang.org/book/appendix-07-nightly-rust.html> and requires the -Z unstable-options flag to enable (see #10098 <https://github.com/rust-lang/cargo/issues/10098>).
- -h, --help
Prints help information.
- -Z flag
Unstable (nightly-only) flags to Cargo. Run cargo -Z help for details.
See the reference <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/environment-variables.html> for details on environment variables that Cargo reads.
- 0: Cargo succeeded.
- 101: Cargo failed to complete.
