Can I change crate name on

Hi folks,

when I published one of my crates, I set name with underscore (I thought it will be name of crate, but actually it is only name in list on

Could somebody explain, if I change name property in Cargo.toml, will it affect current crate or I cannot change the name on ?

You can't. If you change the package's name and run cargo publish, it will publish a new package to with the new name. The package with the old name will still exist though. You could release a new version with the old name telling people that you abandoned this package in favour of your new one.


Got it, thank you.
