§Rust Pango bindings

Rust bindings and wrappers for Pango, part of gtk-rs-core.

Pango 1.40 is the lowest supported version for the underlying library.

§Minimum supported Rust version

Currently, the minimum supported Rust version is 1.70.0.



We recommend using crates from, as demonstrated here.

If you want to track the bleeding edge, use the git dependency instead:

pango = { git = "", package = "pango" }

Avoid mixing versioned and git crates like this:

# This will not compile
pango = "0.13"
pango = { git = "", package = "pango" }
