ripgrep, comtrya, and are just a few Rust tools which are part of my daily terminal workflow.

One way to keep them up2date would be to use a tool like yay. I use yay for everything related to pacman or aur packages on my Manjaro machine. Not everyone publishes their crate so I could install it via yay. My solution for the problem is cargo-update. It keeps all crates that were installed via cargo install <crate-name> up2date by calling cargo install-update -a.

My workflow

  • I installed cargo-update via cargo install cargo-update.
  • To access all my tools, I added ~/.cargo/bin to my $PATH:
export PATH=~/bin:~/.cargo/bin:~/go/bin:$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
  • I run cargo install-update -a every other week
❯ cargo install-update -a
