cachedir

crates.io CI codecov

A Rust library and a CLI tool to help interacting with cache directories and CACHEDIR.TAG files as defined in Cache Directory Tagging Specification.

You can find the library documentation on docs.rs.

To install the CLI tool run cargo install cachedir. To see what options are available run cachedir --help. Only one subcommand, is-tagged, is implemented right now. It allows checking if a directory is tagged with CACHEDIR.TAG (prints the relevant information to stderr and sets an appropriate exit-code: 0 for true, 1 for false, 2 for an error):

~/projects/cachedir% ls -lah target

Versions 0.1.0 and 0.1.1 of this crate on crates.io are actually distributions of a different, abandonded project by Lilian Anatolie Moraru. Credits to Lilian for transferring the name to me.
