Join the chat at https://gitter.im/kbknapp/cargo-outdated crates.io Linux: Build Status

A cargo subcommand for displaying when Rust dependencies are out of date

About

cargo-outdated is for displaying when dependencies have newer versions available.

How it works

The functionality of cargo-outdated largely depends on the cargo builtin command cargo update.

To retrieve the list of available SemVer compatible dependencies, cargo-outdated firstly creates a temporary workspace, then executes cargo update against it, finally compares the temporary dependency tree with the original one.

Similarly, to check the latest dependencies, cargo-outdated replaces the SemVer requirements of direct dependencies with wildcards then goes through the same process.

Demo

Once installed (see below) running cargo outdated in a project directory looks like the following:

$ cargo outdated
Name             Project  Compat  Latest   Kind         Platform
----             -------  ------  ------   ----         --------
clap             2.20.0   2.20.5  2.26.0   Normal       ---
clap->bitflags   0.7.0    ---     0.9.1    Normal       ---
clap->libc       0.2.18   0.2.29  Removed  Normal       ---
clap->term_size  0.2.1    0.2.3   0.3.0    Normal       ---
clap->vec_map    0.6.0    ---     0.8.0    Normal       ---
num_cpus         1.6.0    ---     1.6.2    Development  ---
num_cpus->libc   0.2.18   0.2.29  0.2.29   Normal       ---
pkg-config       0.3.8    0.3.9   0.3.9    Build        ---
term             0.4.5    ---     0.4.6    Normal       ---
term_size->libc  0.2.18   0.2.29  0.2.29   Normal       cfg(not(target_os = "windows"))

Installing

The latest version of cargo-outdated can be installed or updated with cargo install:

cargo install cargo-outdated

or

cargo install --git https://github.com/kbknapp/cargo-outdated

Compiling

Follow these instructions to compile cargo-outdated, then skip down to Installation.

  1. Ensure you have current version of cargo and Rust installed
  2. Clone the project $ git clone https://github.com/kbknapp/cargo-outdated && cd cargo-outdated
  3. Build the project $ cargo build --release
  4. Once complete, the binary will be located at target/release/cargo-outdated

Installation and Usage

All you need to do is place cargo-outdated somewhere in your $PATH. Then run cargo outdated anywhere in your project directory. For full details see below.

Linux / OS X

You have two options, place cargo-outdated into a directory that is already located in your $PATH variable (To see which directories those are, open a terminal and type echo "${PATH//:/\n}", the quotation marks are important), or you can add a custom directory to your $PATH

Option 1 If you have write permission to a directory listed in your $PATH or you have root permission (or via sudo), simply copy the cargo-outdated to that directory # sudo cp cargo-outdated /usr/local/bin

Option 2 If you do not have root, sudo, or write permission to any directory already in $PATH you can create a directory inside your home directory, and add that. Many people use $HOME/.bin to keep it hidden (and not clutter your home directory), or $HOME/bin if you want it to be always visible. Here is an example to make the directory, add it to $PATH, and copy cargo-outdated there.

Simply change bin to whatever you'd like to name the directory, and .bashrc to whatever your shell startup file is (usually .bashrc, .bash_profile, or .zshrc)

mkdir ~/bin
echo "export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin" >> ~/.bashrc
cp cargo-outdated ~/bin
source ~/.bashrc

Windows

On Windows 7/8 you can add directory to the PATH variable by opening a command line as an administrator and running

setx path "%path%;C:\path\to\cargo-outdated\binary"

Otherwise, ensure you have the cargo-outdated binary in the directory which you operating in the command line from, because Windows automatically adds your current directory to PATH (i.e. if you open a command line to C:\my_project\ to use cargo-outdated ensure cargo-outdated.exe is inside that directory as well).

Options

There are a few options for using cargo-outdated which should be somewhat self explanatory.
