Multirust-rs is a reimplementation of multirust in rust. It provides both a command line interface, and a rust library, so it's trivial to integrate it with external tools.



Run this command in a writable directory:

git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/Diggsey/multirust-rs.git multirust-rs && cd multirust-rs && cargo run --release install [-a]

Passing -a will attempt to automatically add ~/.multirust/bin to your PATH.

On linux, this is done by appending to ~/.profile. On windows, this is done by modifying the registry entry HKCU\Environment\PATH.

The changes to PATH will not take effect immediately within the same terminal.

The multirust-rs directory which is created is no longer required once installation has completed, but keeping it around will make future updates much faster:

cd multirust-rs && git pull && cargo run --release install
