Rust nightly Git repo


#1

Please pardon my ignorance what is the location of rust nightly git repo?
Or is it the same as the main repo but rather some branch there?
I saw 7 branches in the main rust repo, which one corresponds to nightly if any?
branches that I saw: master, auto, beta, stable, try, tmp, snap-stage3
Thanks a lot.

If you download the nightly and type rustc --version it will give you the git hash on the main repo that corresponds to the nightly you are using.


#3

Rust nightlies are built off the master branch.

Thank you. So if I build myself of the master I should get and “on demand nightly”?
I want to be able to quickly access new features when I want to pay with them without downloading the whole build every time.


#5

I understand your pain but, FYI, building rust takes a long time. If you’re on a metered connection, it would probably be faster to go to the nearest cafe with wifi and download the latest nightly there.

Yes, that is correct.
