I have released the first, experimental, proof-of-concept version of Rustbud, a tool for managing Rust toolchains (the
cargo, documentation, etc.)
Rustbud is similar to the official
rustup, but is designed to be composable, repeatable and predictable. For example,
rustup encourages sharing a single toolchain across all your Rust projects, so a change made for one project might break another. Rustbud encourages each project having its own toolchain, so it always works the same way regardless of what other toolchains might be around or how they’re configured.
I announced this a few days ago on Reddit, and the overwhelming feedback was “you should put a comparison with
rustup at the top of the README”, so there’s now a comparison with
rustup at the top of the README.
