Forc.toml is the Forc manifest file, containing information about the project and dependencies. Cargo.toml is the Rust project manifest file, used by the Rust-based tests package.

A src/ directory is created, with a single main.sw Sway file in it.

A tests/ directory is also created. The Cargo.toml in the root directory contains necessary Rust dependencies to enable you to write Rust-based tests using our Rust SDK (fuels-rs). More on this in the Test section down below.
