GIFt is both an executable binary that can be run, and a library that can be used in Rust programs.

Installing the command-line executable

Assuming you have Rust/Cargo installed, run this command in a terminal:

cargo install -f gift

It will make the gift command available in your PATH if you've allowed the PATH to be modified when installing Rust. cargo uninstall gift uninstalls.

Adding gift library as a dependency

If you have cargo-edit installed, run this command in a terminal, in your project's directory:

cargo add gift

To add it manually, edit your project's Cargo.toml file and add to the [dependencies] section:

gift = "0.3.1"

The gift library will automatically available globally. Read the gift library documentation.
