ChatGPT can now handle up to 25000 words of input, making it possible to analyze medium-sized software projects / Rust crates. This is a basic utility which writes all Rust source code in your crate plus markdown documentation and directory structure to standard output so it can be passed as input to ChatGPT.


cargo install cargo-gpt


cargo new --bin hello-world
cd hello-world
cargo gpt


// Cargo.toml
name = "hello-world"
version = "0.1.0"
edition = "2021"

# See more keys and their definitions at https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/manifest.html

// src/main.rs
fn main() {
    println!("Hello, world!");
