Announcing Rust support

Using Rust? Dependabot can now help you keep your Cargo.toml and Cargo.lock files up-to-date.


Here's how it works:

  • Dependabot looks for a "Cargo.toml" and (optionally) a "Cargo.lock" in your repo, and pulls it down.
  • Dependabot extracts the dependencies and checks with for new versions.
  • If any updates are available, Dependabot creates individual PRs for each of your outdated dependencies.

We wanted to launch Rust support as early as possible, so have released it in beta. As such, we currently don't support Rust workspaces - we'll add support for them in the next couple of days, though. Update: Dependabot now supports Rust workspaces.

If you use Rust we'd love to hear from you as we test support for it. If you have any suggestions, or if you experience any issues, please don't hesitate to let us know!


Dependabot helps keep your dependencies up-to-date. It's free for personal accounts and open source, and always will be.
