A tool to check that your Cargo.toml dependencies are sorted alphabetically. Project created as a solution to @dtolnay's request for implementation #29. Cross platform implementation, windows compatible. Terminal coloring works on both cmd.exe and powershell. Checks/sorts by key in tables and also nested table headers (does not sort the items in a nested header, sorts the table itself).
cargo sort uses toml-edit to parse the toml file into something useful.
--format option may result in improperly formatted toml; please file an issue.
There are three modes cargo-sort can be used in:
- No flags set cargo-sort will write the sorted result over the input Cargo.toml file.
- -c or --check
- Will fail with a non-zero exit code if the file is unsorted.
- -n or --no-format
- Will NOT format the sorted toml. This option only has an effect if writing or printing out.
- -g or --grouped
- When sorting keep table key value spacing. If you have dependency groups they will stick but be sorted within the grouping.
key_value_newlinesconfig option needs to be
truefor this to have any effect.
- When sorting keep table key value spacing. If you have dependency groups they will stick but be sorted within the grouping. The
- -p or --print
- Write the sorted toml file to stdout.
- -w or --workspace
- Checks every crate in the workspace based on flags. Only one root may be given.
- -o or --order
- Specify an ordering of tables. All nested tables will be sorted and appear after the specified table. Any unspecified table will be after specified.
cargo sort uses a config file when formatting called
tomlfmt.toml. This is optional and defaults will
be used if not found in the current working dir.
Here are the defaults when no
tomlfmt.toml is found
# trailing comma in arrays always_trailing_comma = false # trailing comma when multi-line multiline_trailing_comma = true space_around_eq = true # remove all the spacing inside the array compact_arrays = false # remove all the spacing inside the object compact_inline_tables = false trailing_newline = true # is it ok to have blank lines inside of a table # this option needs to be true for the --grouped flag key_value_newlines = true allowed_blank_lines = 1 # windows style line endings crlf = false # The user specified ordering of tables in a document. # All unspecified tables will come after these. table_order = 
included in sort check is:
["dependencies"] ["dev-dependencies"] ["build-dependencies"] ["workspace.members"] ["workspace.exclude"]

cargo install cargo-sort
If you use pre-commit in your project, you can add cargo-sort as hook by
adding the following entry to your
repos: - repo: https://github.com/DevinR528/cargo-sort rev: v1.0.4 hooks: - id: cargo-sort
Please make sure to set
rev to the latest tag of this repo as the tag shown here might not always
be updated to the latest version.
cargo sort [FLAGS] [path]
Wildcard expansion is supported so you can do this
cargo-sort [FLAGS] [path/to/*/Cargo.toml | path/to/*]
or any other pattern that is supported by your terminal. This also means multiple paths work.
cargo-sort [FLAGS] path/to/a path/to/b path/to/c/Cargo.toml
Finally cargo sort has the --workspace flag and will sort each Cargo.toml file in a workspace
These are all valid. File names and extensions can be used on some of the paths but not others, if left off the tool will default to Cargo.toml.
cargo sort 1.0.0 Devin R <email@example.com> Ensure Cargo.toml dependency tables are sorted. USAGE: cargo-sort [FLAGS] [CWD] FLAGS: -c, --check exit with non-zero if Cargo.toml is unsorted, overrides default behavior -f, --format formats the given Cargo.toml according to tomlfmt.toml -g, --grouped when sorting groups of key value pairs blank lines are kept -h, --help Prints help information -p, --print prints Cargo.toml, lexically sorted, to stdout -V, --version Prints version information -w, --workspace checks every crate in a workspace ARGS: <CWD>... sets cwd, must contain a Cargo.toml file
