cargo winrt

A simple utility for working with WinRT in a Rust project.

Installation

To install cargo winrt run the following:

cargo install --git https://github.com/microsoft/winrt-rs cargo-winrt

Usage

Install

To install NuGet packages, add NuGet dependencies to your projects Cargo.toml file like so:

[package.metadata.winrt.dependencies]
"Win2D.uwp" = "1.25.0"

Nuget packages at a given URL are also supported:

[package.metadata.winrt.dependencies]
"Win2D.uwp" = { url = "http://example.com/my/nuget/package" }

As well as unzipped on your local file system:

[package.metadata.winrt.dependencies]
"Win2D.uwp" = { path = "../../my-nuget-package" }

Then to install run:

cargo winrt install

Build

Rust WinRT works great with plain cargo, but if you want a way to ensure that you have installed all WinRT dependencies, before building, you can run:

cargo winrt build

This is equivalent to:

cargo winrt install
cargo build

Run

Just like building your WinRT projects, you can use cargo winrt to run your project in one step:

cargo winrt run

This is equivalent to:

cargo winrt install
cargo run
