How to Use Cargo Repositories in Artifactory
JFrog Cargo Package Registry Wiki
Today JFrog Artifactory natively supports Cargo registries for the Rust programming language, providing complete control of your deployment and resolution of Cargo packages.
A Cargo registry can be used to proxy remote Cargo resources and cache downloaded packages. Secure your packages using a local Cargo repository and much more.
According to the Rust Foundation, “Cargo is Rust’s build system and package manager. Most Rustaceans use this tool to manage their Rust projects because Cargo handles many tasks for you, such as building your code, downloading the libraries your code depends on, and building those libraries. (We call the libraries that your code needs dependencies.)”
Rust is a multi-paradigm, general-purpose programming language focused on safety and performance, similar to C and C++. Rust is fast and memory-efficient with no garbage collector.
Yes, you can build Cargo from source.
Cargo is a smart client that allows you to build, run and test your projects. Here are some helpful Cargo commands that take you through a typical workflow (these commands may be run with verbose [-v] or very verbose [-vv] mode):
$ cargo build
$ cargo run
$ cargo test
$ cargo doc
$ cargo publish
Cargo’s syntax and methodology are pretty straightforward. Learn more about TOML and managing Rust packages with Cargo here.
A Rust crate is either a library or an executable program, referred to as a library crate or a binary crate.
The term crate may refer to either the target's source code or the compiled artifact that the target produces. It may also refer to a compressed package fetched from a registry.
The source code for a given crate may be subdivided into modules.
The Rust community maintains the crates.io package registry for distributing open-source packages. As a Rust programmer, you’ll rely on this growing public library for most of the core services of your applications.
For uninterrupted speed and consistency of your Rust builds across teams, use an Artifactory remote repository to proxy crates.io.
A remote repository in Artifactory serves as a caching proxy for a repository or registry managed at a remote URL. There will be no difference between the contents of the remote repo and the native source.

You can get even more functionality and features out of Cargo by combining it with JFrog Artifactory as a Cargo registry. Learn more about setting up a remote repository proxy for crates.io.
