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 https://sh.rustup.rs -sSf | sh
rustup-init.exe from www.rustup.rs and run.
⭐ If you are on Microsoft Windows, you have to install Visual C++ Build Tools 2015 or higher, which requires an additional 3–4 GBs.
After installing Rust you can check the current version by typing
rustc --version or
rustc -V on your terminal to verify the success of the installation.
💡 When a new Rust version released, use
rustup update command to update Rust ecosystem.
