Build Status

os_type

Rust library to detect the operating system type

Usage

Include this into your Cargo.toml:

[dependencies]
os_type="1.0.0"

In your code:

extern crate os_type;
let os = os_type::current_platform();
println!("Type: {:?}", os.os_type);
println!("Version: {}", os.version);

Or to provide different handling on different operating systems:

match os_type::current_platform().os_type {
  os_type::OSType::OSX => {
    println!("This is probably an apple laptop!");
  }
  os_type::OSType::Ubuntu => {
    println!("This is running Ubuntu Linux!");
  }
  _ => {
    println!("I can't tell what system this is.");
  }
}

Right now, the following operating system types can be returned:

  • Unknown
  • Redhat
  • CentOS
  • OSX
  • Ubuntu
  • Debian
  • Arch
  • Manjaro

If you need support for more OS types, I am looking forward to your Pull Request.

Requirements

On Linux based systems this library requires that lsb_release is installed.
