Multirust Install

Multirust is a system for managing multiple installs of the Rust compiler and Cargo, the Rust package manager.

By default multirust installs into /usr/local, we will be installing into our home directory to avoid giving multirust any unneccesary privledges.

  1. Install GPG for checking compiler signatures, brew install gpg
  2. Clone the repo, git clone https://github.com/brson/multirust.git
cd multirust
mkdir ~/rustbase
./build.sh
./install.sh --prefix=~/rustbase

Add ~/rustbase/bin/ to your PATH
