There exist some comfortable must-have add-ons for the Rust programming language crate package manager Cargo.

Check if you have them installed with command cargo --list!

  1. cargo-audit
    Audit Cargo.lock files for crates with security vulnerabilities reported to the RustSec Advisory Database.

  2. cargo-deny
    cargo-deny is a cargo plugin that lets you lint your project's dependency graph to ensure all your dependencies conform to your expectations and requirements.

  3. cargo-outdated
    A cargo subcommand for displaying when Rust dependencies are out of date.

  4. cargo-update
    A cargo subcommand for checking and applying updates to installed executables.

  5. sccache
    sccache is a ccache-like compiler caching tool. It is used as a compiler wrapper and avoids compilation when possible, storing cached results either on local disk or in one of several cloud storage backends.
