Getting Started

Installing Rust

If you don't have Rust yet the quicket way to get the current nightly build is to run:

curl -s https://static.rust-lang.org/rustup.sh | sudo sh -s -- --channel=nightly

If you want other installation options, visit the official install guide.

Adding the Kinetic-rust dependency

If you are using Cargo and want to use the latest stable Kinetic-rust crate available at crates.io add this to your Cargo.toml:


To get the dependency to be linked directly to the GitHub repo then add this instead:

    git = "https://github.com/icorderi/kinetic-rust.git"

Note: For more information on handling dependencies check the official cargo site.

Importing Kinetic-rust

To import Kinetic-rust from your code add this statement:

extern crate kinetic; // depend on the kinetic-rust library

[Optional] Installing Kinetic-rust from source

git clone https://github.com/icorderi/kinetic-rust.git
cd kinetic-rust
cargo build --release

Note: The --release flag will compile the code with the optimizations turned on.

Additionally you can run the tests or compile the documentation locally:

cargo test
cargo doc

The local HTML documentation will be available at ./target/doc/kinetic/index.html.

Note: Some tests will require you to have a Kinetic device available. You can use the simulator if you don't have real devices.


If you need help don't forget to checkout the online documentation for the library.
