Referencing workspace member as dependency

One can specify a workspace dependency and refer to it from a member crate with

# in root Cargo.toml
members = ["foo", "bar"]

rand = "0.8"

# in foo crate
rand = { workspace = true }

Is there a way I can refer to a member crate in the dependencies similarly. Currently, I just use path specifier, but if my directory structure changes it is a headache to fix.


# in foo crate
rand = { workspace = true }
bar = { workspace = true } # this would be nice!

Specify your path dependency in the workspace.dependencies table and then you can do exactly that. Doesn't save you from updating one entry for each crate that moved, but if lots of crates referred to it that's still an upgrade

Perfect, thanks! I had not thought of doing that!
