Install Stable Rust and Cargo

The easiest way to get Cargo is to get the current stable release of Rust by using the rustup script:

$ curl -sSf | sh

After this, you can use the rustup command to also install beta or nightly channels for Rust and Cargo.

Install Nightly Cargo

To install just Cargo, the current recommended installation method is through the official nightly builds. Note that Cargo will also require that Rust is already installed on the system.
