If you haven’t already, install Rust on your computer (it should only take a few minutes). After that, open a terminal and navigate to the directory you want to put your application code into.
Start by running
cargo new grrs
in the directory you store your programming projects in.
If you look at the newly created
you’ll find a typical setup for a Rust project:
Cargo.tomlfile that contains metadata for our project, incl. a list of dependencies/external libraries we use.
src/main.rsfile that is the entry point for our (main) binary.
If you can execute
cargo run in the
and get a “Hello World”, you’re all set up.
What it might look like
$ cargo new grrs Created binary (application) `grrs` package $ cd grrs/ $ cargo run Compiling grrs v0.1.0 (/Users/pascal/code/grrs) Finished dev [unoptimized + debuginfo] target(s) in 0.70s Running `target/debug/grrs` Hello, world!
