This is a Vim plugin that provides Rust file detection, syntax highlighting, formatting, Syntastic integration, and more.


Using Vundle

  1. Add Plugin 'rust-lang/rust.vim' to ~/.vimrc
  2. :PluginInstall or $ vim +PluginInstall +qall

Note: Vundle will not automatically detect Rust files properly if filetype on is executed before Vundle. Please check the quickstart for more details.

Using Pathogen

git clone --depth=1 ~/.vim/bundle/rust.vim

Using NeoBundle

  1. Add NeoBundle 'rust-lang/rust.vim' to ~/.vimrc
  2. Re-open vim or execute :source ~/.vimrc

Using vim-plug

  1. Add Plug 'rust-lang/rust.vim' to ~/.vimrc
  2. :PlugInstall or $ vim +PlugInstall +qall


Error checking with Syntastic

rust.vim automatically registers rustc as a syntax checker with Syntastic. Check Syntastic's documentation for information on how to customize its behaviour.

Formatting with rustfmt

The :RustFmt command will format your code with rustfmt if installed.

Placing let g:rustfmt_autosave = 1 in your ~/.vimrc will enable automatic running of :RustFmt when you save a buffer.

Do :help :RustFmt for further formatting help and customization options.

Playpen integration

Note: This feature requires webapi-vim to be installed.

The :RustPlay command will send the current selection, or if nothing is selected the current buffer, to the Rust playpen.


Further help can be found in the documentation with :Helptags then :help rust.

Detailed help can be found in the documentation with :help rust. Helptags (:help helptags) need to be generated for this plugin in order to navigate the help. Most plugin managers will do this automatically, but check their documentation if that is not the case.
