Print a Cargo manifest, old style

1 unstable release

0.1.0 Oct 4, 2019

#2026 in Development tools

Apache-2.0 OR MIT



This crate contains a single binary that lets users print a Cargo manifest old style, in case they experimented with the new Cargo.lock format and wish to go back to the old one, for example to run a Cargo-related tool that didn't make the switch yet.


cargo run -- path/to/Cargo.lock


This crate is licensed under both the Apache 2.0 and MIT licenses, so you are free to do whatever you want with it as long as you respect the terms from these two.

If you are a highly paid worker at Google, Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Palantir, Uber, Airbnb, Deliveroo, or any other company that prioritises profit over people as strongly as they do, you can still use this crate. I simply wish you will unionise and push back against the obsession for growth, control, and power that is rampant in your workplace. Please take a stand against the horrible working conditions they inflict on your lesser paid colleagues, and more generally their gross disrespect for the very human rights they claim to fight for.
