os_info

Status: CI Coverage

Project info: Docs.rs Latest Version License

Project details: LoC Rust 1.41+ required Dependencies

Overview

This project consists of two parts: the library that can be used to detect the operating system type (including version and bitness) and the command line tool that uses the library.

Library (os_info)

os_info usage

To use this crate, add os_info as a dependency to your project's Cargo.toml:

[dependencies]
os_info = "3.0"

This project has serde as an optional dependency, so if you don't need it, then you can speed up compilation disabling it:

[dependencies]
os_info = { version = "3.0", default-features = false }

Example

let info = os_info::get();

// Print full information:
println!("OS information: {}", info);

// Print information separately:
println!("Type: {}", info.os_type());
println!("Version: {}", info.version());
println!("Bitness: {}", info.bitness());

Command line tool (os_info_cli)

A simple wrapper around the os_info library.

Installation

This tool can be installed using the following cargo command:

cargo install os_info_cli

os_info_cli usage

Despite being named os_info_cli during installation, it is actually named os_info. You can use the --help flag to see available options:

os_info --help
