A rust code completion plugin for gedit. Built with the Rust auto completion tool by Phil Dawes (https://github.com/phildawes/racer).


Current Features:

  • Autocompletion
  • Find Definition (with right-click menu)


  • racer should already be installed. If you did not installed it until now run:

$ cargo install racer

  • a copy of the rust source should be on your system. If you did not download the rust source so far run:

$ rustup component add rust-src

for other installation methods please refer to: https://github.com/phildawes/racer/blob/master/README.md


  • Download the project.
  • Extract the files to /home/YOUR_USER_NAME/.local/share/gedit/plugins
  • If the directory .local/share/gedit/plugins/ is not present, create it.
  • Open gedit, go to Preferences > Plugins > Gracer to activate it.
  • From plugins menu, open Gracer's Preferences.
  • Set Racer path and Rust source path.
  • Restart gedit.
