Creating a new account at Shipyard.rs is free and takes less than 30s. Our free tier provides everything you need to see how a private crates registry works, and might even provide enough usage for small projects.
To create an account, navigate to the sign-up page.
You'll need to provide:
- An email: this will be the primary identifier or your user account
- An organization or registry name; this is a name that will be used to refer to your registry.
- A password: choose wisely.
(Note: authentication via Google Oauth is also provided. In that case, sign-up and login will follow a slightly different path, which will discuss in the next chapter.)
