CARGO-SEARCH(1) General Commands Manual CARGO-SEARCH(1)

cargo-search - Search packages in crates.io

cargo search [options] [query...]

This performs a textual search for crates on https://crates.io. The matching crates will be displayed along with their description in TOML format suitable for copying into a Cargo.toml manifest.

--limit limit
Limit the number of results (default: 10, max: 100).

--index index

The URL of the registry index to use.

--registry registry

Name of the registry to use. Registry names are defined in Cargo config files https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html. If not specified, the default registry is used, which is defined by the registry.default config key which defaults to crates-io.

-v, --verbose
Use verbose output. May be specified twice for "very verbose" output which includes extra output such as dependency warnings and build script output. May also be specified with the term.verbose config value https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html.

-q, --quiet

No output printed to stdout.

--color when

Control when colored output is used. Valid values:
auto (default): Automatically detect if color support is available on the terminal.
always: Always display colors.
never: Never display colors.

May also be specified with the term.color config value https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html.

+toolchain
If Cargo has been installed with rustup, and the first argument to cargo begins with +, it will be interpreted as a rustup toolchain name (such as +stable or +nightly). See the rustup documentation https://rust-lang.github.io/rustup/overrides.html for more information about how toolchain overrides work.

-h, --help

Prints help information.

-Z flag

Unstable (nightly-only) flags to Cargo. Run cargo -Z help for details.

See the reference https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/environment-variables.html for details on environment variables that Cargo reads.
