cargo cache

Build Status dependency status Latest Version libs.rs

Display information on the cargo cache ~/.cargo/. Optional cache pruning.

Key Features:

  • check the size of the cargo cache and its components
  • do a simple cleanup removing checkouts but keeping original files needed for reconstruction on disk
  • clean up everything (cargo will re-download as needed)
  • dry-run to see what would be removed
  • recompress git repos
  • search cache via regex queries
  • print crates that take the most space
  • runs on stable, beta and nightly channel

Installation:

cargo install cargo-cache

or for the bleeding edge development version:

cargo install --git https://github.com/matthiaskrgr/cargo-cache

If you encounter problems while building cargo, please check out the instructions at the cargo repo.

Do a light cleanup

This removes extracted tarball sources and repository checkouts. The original source archives and git repos are kept and will be extracted as needed by cargo.
