I'd like to try Rust as a programming language, but it seems that the recommended installation mechanism, Rustup, automatically creates a number of directories in my home directory and modifies my
~/.bashrc. This is unsuitable for multiple reasons:
- I'm somewhat low on disk space, and it doesn't tell me how much disk space it is going to use
- I manage my dot files with git, so I'd really appreciate it if could do the modifications manually
- Because I'm low on disk space, I need to install Rust to an odd location.
- I'd like to use the Rust compiler from multiple users on my system, and Rustup installs locally to my user account by default. This means that I'd potentially need to install it multiple times - further compounding my disk space problem.
Is there an installation guide that shows me the manual installation steps I need to undertake to get Rust installed globally for all user accounts? I'm using Ubuntu 19.04.
It would be really handy if there was an up-to-date apt repository
