There are many ways to install Rust on your system. For the moment the official way to install Rust is using Rustup.
📖 Rustup installs The Rust Programming Language from the official release channels, enabling you to easily switch between stable, beta, and nightly compilers and keep them updated. It makes cross-compiling simpler with binary builds of the standard library for common platforms.
📖 Rustup installs
rustup and other standard tools to Cargo’s
bin directory. On Unix it is located at
$HOME/.cargo/bin and on Windows at
%USERPROFILE%\.cargo\bin. This is the same directory that
cargo install will install Rust programs and Cargo plugins.
💡 More information can be found on the Github page of Rustup project.
curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf https://sh.rustup.rs | sh
