Cargo Install

If you have the Rust toolchain, you can also compile and install nse by running cargo install nse.

Remember to use an add-on like cargo-update to keep nse updated to the latest version!

Feature Requests

If you would like to make a feature request, check the issues to see if the feature has already been added or is planned. If not, create a new issue.

Building from Source or Working with nse

Firstly, you need the Rust toolchain which includes cargo, rustup, etc. You can install these from the Rust website. You'll also need the Just command runner, its basically a much better version of make.

If you want to build nse without cloning the repo then run cargo install nse.

To build the project and install it to your Cargo binary directory, clone the project and run just install. If you want to install it for testing a developement version, run just (alias for just install-dev).

If you want to obtain executables for a specific OS, you can run just build-<OS> and replace <OS> with mac, win, or linux. The produced binaries will be zipped and moved to out/.

You can run clippy linters using just lint, and integration tests using cargo test. Finally you can delete all the build and test artefacts by using just clean.
