LibMake is a tool designed to quickly help create high-quality Rust libraries by generating a set of pre-filled and pre-defined templated files. This opinionated boilerplate scaffolding tool aims to greatly reduce development time and minimize repetitive tasks, allowing you to focus on your business logic while enforcing standards, best practices, consistency, and providing style guides for your library.

With LibMake, you can easily generate a new Rust library code base structure with all the necessary files, layouts, build configurations, code, tests, benchmarks, documentation, and much more in a matter of seconds.

The library is designed to be used as a command-line tool. It is available on and


LibMake offers the following features and benefits:

  • Create your Rust library with ease using the command-line interface or by providing a configuration file in CSV, JSON, or YAML format.
  • Rapidly generate new library projects with a pre-defined structure and boilerplate code that you can customize with your own template.
  • Automatically generate basic functions, methods, and macros to get you started with your Rust library.
  • Enforce best practices and standards with starter documentation, test suites, and benchmark suites that are designed to help you get up and running quickly.


  • serde: Enable serialization/deserialization via serde


  • The args module contains functions for processing command-line arguments.
  • The cli module contains functions for processing command-line input.
  • The generator module contains functions for generating the new library.
  • The generators module contains functions for generating code.
  • The interface module contains functions for displaying the interface.
  • The macros module contains functions for generating macros.
  • The models module contains the models for the library.
  • The utilities module contains utility functions for the library.
  • The utils module contains a function for reading a CSV file at the given file path and returns the value of the given field.



  • Initializes the logger with a file logger and a terminal logger and processes command-line arguments to generate the new library.
