A plugin to improve your rust experience in neovim.

Quick Links


  • neovim 0.7
  • nvim-lspconfig
  • rust-analyzer
  • dot from graphviz (only for crate graph)


using packer.nvim

use 'neovim/nvim-lspconfig'
use 'simrat39/rust-tools.nvim'

-- Debugging
use 'nvim-lua/plenary.nvim'
use 'mfussenegger/nvim-dap'

Look at the configuration information below to get started.


This plugin automatically sets up nvim-lspconfig for rust_analyzer for you, so don't do that manually, as it causes conflicts.

Put this in your init.lua or any lua file that is sourced.

For most people, the defaults are fine, but for advanced configuration, see Configuration.

Example config:

local rt = require("rust-tools")

  server = {
    on_attach = function(_, bufnr)
      -- Hover actions
      vim.keymap.set("n", "<C-space>", rt.hover_actions.hover_actions, { buffer = bufnr })
      -- Code action groups
      vim.keymap.set("n", "<Leader>a", rt.code_action_group.code_action_group, { buffer = bufnr })




Inlay Hints

inlay hints

-- Commands:
-- RustEnableInlayHints
-- RustDisableInlayHints
-- RustSetInlayHints
-- RustUnsetInlayHints

-- Set inlay hints for the current buffer
-- Unset inlay hints for the current buffer

-- Enable inlay hints auto update and set them for all the buffers
-- Disable inlay hints auto update and unset them for all buffers


-- Command:
-- RustRunnables
Expand Macros Recursively

expand macros

-- Command:
-- RustExpandMacro  
Move Item Up/Down

move items

-- Command:
-- RustMoveItemUp    
-- RustMoveItemDown    
local up = true -- true = move up, false = move down
Hover Actions

hover actions Note: To activate hover actions, run the command twice (or your hover keymap if you have hover_with_actions set to true AND are using vim.lsp.buf.hover()). This will move you into the window, then press enter on the selection you want. Alternatively, you can set auto_focus to true in your config and you will automatically enter the hover actions window.

-- Command:
-- RustHoverActions 
Hover Range

Note: Requires rust-analyzer version after 2021-08-02. Shows the type in visual mode when hovering.

-- Command:
-- RustHoverRange 
Open Cargo.toml

open cargo

-- Command:
-- RustOpenCargo
Parent Module

parent module

-- Command:
-- RustParentModule 
Join Lines

join lines

-- Command:
-- RustJoinLines  
Structural Search Replace
-- Command:
-- RustSSR [query]
View Crate Graph
-- Command:
-- RustViewCrateGraph [backend [output]]
require'rust-tools'.crate_graph.view_crate_graph(backend, output)
