Rust Analyzer is an experimental modular compiler frontend for the Rust language. It is a part of a larger rls-2.0 effort to create excellent IDE support for Rust. If you want to get involved, check the rls-2.0 working group in the compiler-team repository:
Work on the Rust Analyzer is sponsored by
Language Server Quick Start
Rust Analyzer is a work-in-progress, so you'll have to build it from source, and you might encounter critical bugs. That said, it is complete enough to provide a useful IDE experience and some people use it as a daily driver.
To build rust-analyzer, you need:
- latest stable rust for language server itself
- latest stable npm and VS Code for VS Code extension (
codeshould be in path)
For setup for other editors, see ./docs/user.
# clone the repo $ git clone https://github.com/rust-analyzer/rust-analyzer && cd rust-analyzer # install both the language server and VS Code extension $ cargo install-code # alternatively, install only the server. Binary name is `ra_lsp_server`. $ cargo install-lsp
If you want to contribute to rust-analyzer or just curious about how things work under the hood, check the ./docs/dev folder.
If you want to use rust-analyzer's language server with your editor of choice, check ./docs/user folder. It also contains some tips & tricks to help you be more productive when using rust-analyzer.
