Remote Cargo CLI


rcargo is a command-line tool that allows you to build and install Rust binaries using cargo from a remote host and copy the binaries locally. It is useful for development and testing, especially when the local environment is not suitable for building the required binaries or if you want to build the binaries on remote workstation.

available commands:

  • list: List the installed packages on the remote host.
  • install: Install packages from with remote build.
