A simplified cheat sheet for managing applications using Rust and Cargo

This handy cheat sheet gives you all the essentials you need to know about Cargo, your Rust package manager. Including how to install, how it works, simple examples, and useful Cargo commands that take you through a typical workflow.

Rust is a low-level statically-typed multi-paradigm programming language that’s focused on safety and performance, similar to C and C++, and is fast and memory-efficient with no garbage collections.

Cargo is the Rust package manager. Cargo downloads your Rust package dependencies, compiles your packages, makes distributable packages, and uploads them to by default, the Rust community’s package registry.
