            This also includes runs with just --no-default-features flag, and default features.

            When this flag is not used together with --exclude-features (--skip) and
            --include-features and there are multiple features, this also includes runs with just
            --all-features flag.

        --feature-powerset
            Perform for the feature powerset of the package.

            This also includes runs with just --no-default-features flag, and default features.

            When this flag is used together with --depth or namespaced features (-Z
            namespaced-features) and not used together with --exclude-features (--skip) and
            --include-features and there are multiple features, this also includes runs with just
            --all-features flag.

        --optional-deps [DEPS]...

            --feature-powerset flag.

        --depth <NUM>
            Specify a max number of simultaneous feature flags of --feature-powerset.

            If NUM is set to 1, --feature-powerset is equivalent to --each-feature.

            This flag can only be used together with --feature-powerset flag.

        --group-features <FEATURES>...
            Space or comma separated list of features to group.

            This treats the specified features as if it were a single feature.

        --include-features <FEATURES>...
            Include only the specified features in the feature combinations instead of package
            features.

            This flag can only be used together with either --each-feature flag or
            --feature-powerset flag.

        --no-dev-deps
            Perform without dev-dependencies.

            Note that this flag removes dev-dependencies from real `Cargo.toml` while cargo-hack is
            running and restores it when finished.

        --remove-dev-deps
            Equivalent to --no-dev-deps flag except for does not restore the original `Cargo.toml`
            after performed.

            Perform without `publish = false` crates.

        --ignore-private
            Skip to perform on `publish = false` packages.

        --ignore-unknown-features
            Skip passing --features flag to `cargo` if that feature does not exist in the package.

            This flag can be used with --features, --include-features, or --group-features.

        --rust-version
            Perform commands on `package.rust-version`.

            This cannot be used with --version-range.

        --version-range [START]..[=END]
            Perform commands on a specified (inclusive) range of Rust versions.

            If the upper bound of the range is omitted, the latest stable compiler is used as the
            upper bound.

            If the lower bound of the range is omitted, the value of the `rust-version` field in
            `Cargo.toml` is used as the lower bound.

            Note that ranges are always inclusive ranges.

        --version-step <NUM>
            Specify the version interval of --version-range (default to `1`).

            This flag can only be used together with --version-range flag.

        --clean-per-run
            Remove artifacts for that package before running the command.

            If used this flag with --workspace, --each-feature, or --feature-powerset, artifacts
            will be removed before each run.

            Note that dependencies artifacts will be preserved.

        --clean-per-version
            Remove artifacts per Rust version.

            Note that dependencies artifacts will also be removed.

            This flag can only be used together with --version-range flag.

        --keep-going
            Keep going on failure.

        --log-group <KIND>
            Log grouping: none, github-actions.

            If this option is not used, the environment will be automatically detected.

        --print-command-list
            Print commands without run (Unstable).

        --no-manifest-path
            Do not pass --manifest-path option to cargo (Unstable).

    -v, --verbose
            Use verbose output.

        --color <WHEN>
            Coloring: auto, always, never.

            This flag will be propagated to cargo.

    -h, --help
            Prints help information.

    -V, --version
            Prints version information.

Some common cargo commands are (see all commands with --list):
    build       Compile the current package
    check       Analyze the current package and report errors, but don't build object files
    run         Run a binary or example of the local package
    test        Run the tests

cargo-hack is basically wrapper of cargo that propagates subcommand and most of the passed flags to cargo, but provides additional flags and changes the behavior of some existing flags.

--each-feature

Perform for each feature which includes default features and --no-default-features of the package.

This is useful to check that each feature is working properly. (When used for this purpose, it is recommended to use with --no-dev-deps to avoid cargo#4866.)

cargo hack check --each-feature --no-dev-deps

See also Options for adjusting the behavior of --each-feature and --feature-powerset section.

--feature-powerset

Perform for the feature powerset which includes --no-default-features and default features of the package.

This is useful to check that every combination of features is working properly. (When used for this purpose, it is recommended to use with --no-dev-deps to avoid cargo#4866.)

cargo hack check --feature-powerset --no-dev-deps

cargo-hack deduplicate any fully equivalent feature combinations based on how the cargo features work. Therefore, it may be more efficient than checking all feature combinations in other ways.

When using this flag results in a very large number of feature combinations, consider using --depth option.

See also Options for adjusting the behavior of --each-feature and --feature-powerset section.

Options for adjusting the behavior of --each-feature and --feature-powerset

The following flags can be used with --each-feature and --feature-powerset.

--optional-deps

Use optional dependencies as features.

This flag treats all option dependencies as features by default. To treat only specific dependencies as features, pass a space or comma separated list.

cargo hack check --feature-powerset --optional-deps deps1,deps2

--exclude-features, --skip

Space or comma separated list of features to exclude.

cargo hack check --feature-powerset --exclude-features feature1,feature2
cargo hack check --feature-powerset --skip feature1,feature2

--depth

Specify a max number of simultaneous feature flags of --feature-powerset.

If the number is set to 1, --feature-powerset is equivalent to --each-feature.

--group-features

Space or comma separated list of features to group.

This treats the specified features as if it were a single feature.

To specify multiple groups, use this option multiple times: --group-features a,b --group-features c,d

--rust-version

Perform commands on the Rust version of package.rust-version field in Cargo.toml

--version-range

Perform commands on a specified (inclusive) range of Rust versions.

$ cargo hack check --version-range 1.46..=1.47
info: running `rustup run 1.46 cargo check` on cargo-hack (1/2)
...
info: running `rustup run 1.47 cargo check` on cargo-hack (2/2)
...

(We use rustup run <toolchain> cargo instead of cargo +<toolchain> to work around a rustup bug.)

This might be useful for catching issues like termcolor#35, regex#685, rust-clippy#6324.

If the upper bound of the range is omitted, the latest stable compiler is used as the upper bound.

If the lower bound of the range is omitted, the value of the rust-version field in Cargo.toml is used as the lower bound.

You can specify the version interval by using --version-step.

--no-dev-deps

Perform without dev-dependencies.

This is a workaround for an issue that dev-dependencies leaking into normal build (cargo#4866).

Also, this can be used as a workaround for an issue that cargo does not allow publishing a package with cyclic dev-dependencies. (cargo#4242)

cargo hack publish --no-dev-deps --dry-run --allow-dirty

Note: Currently, using --no-dev-deps flag removes dev-dependencies from real manifest while cargo-hack is running and restores it when finished. See cargo#4242 for why this is necessary. Also, this behavior may change in the future on some subcommands. See also #15.

--remove-dev-deps

Equivalent to --no-dev-deps except for does not restore the original Cargo.toml after execution.

This is useful to know what Cargo.toml that cargo-hack is actually using with --no-dev-deps.

This flag also works without subcommands.

--ignore-private

Skip to perform on publish = false crates.

--no-private

Perform without publish = false crates. This is similar to --ignore-private, but is more powerful because this also prevents private crates from affecting lockfile and metadata.

Note: --no-private flag modifies Cargo.toml while cargo-hack is running and restores it when finished.

--ignore-unknown-features

Skip passing --features to cargo if that feature does not exist.

--clean-per-run

Remove artifacts for that package before running the command.

This also works as a workaround for rust-clippy#4612.

Improvement of the behavior of existing cargo flags

cargo-hack changes the behavior of the following existing flags.

--features, --no-default-features

Unlike cargo (cargo#3620, cargo#4106, cargo#4463, cargo#4753, cargo#5015, cargo#5364, cargo#6195), it can also be applied to sub-crates.

--all, --workspace

Perform command for all packages in the workspace.

Unlike cargo, it does not compile all members at once.

For example, running cargo hack check --all in a workspace with members foo and bar behaves almost the same as the following script:

# If you use cargo-hack, you don't need to maintain this list manually.
members=("foo" "bar")

for member in "${members[@]}"; do
    cargo check --manifest-path "${member}/Cargo.toml"
done

Workspace members will be performed according to the order of the 'packages' fields of cargo metadata.

Installation

From source

cargo +stable install cargo-hack --locked

Compiler support: requires rustc 1.70+

cargo-hack is usually runnable with Cargo versions older than the Rust version required for installation (e.g., cargo +1.31 hack check). Currently, to run cargo-hack requires Cargo 1.26+.
