Topic: rustc API docs..?


nikomatsakis (Mar 31 2020 at 19:33, on Zulip):

Did we move the rustc API docs? Where are they to be found?

eddyb (Mar 31 2020 at 19:33, on Zulip):

did you miss the rustc -> rustc_middle rename :)?

centril (Mar 31 2020 at 19:33, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis the crate was renamed to rustc_middle

eddyb (Mar 31 2020 at 19:34, on Zulip):

RIP librustc

nikomatsakis (Mar 31 2020 at 19:34, on Zulip):

sigh

nikomatsakis (Mar 31 2020 at 19:34, on Zulip):

/me not convinced this was a good change

nikomatsakis (Mar 31 2020 at 19:34, on Zulip):

:P

nikomatsakis (Mar 31 2020 at 19:34, on Zulip):

anyway it's fine but we should update rustc-dev-guide.rust-lang.org

centril (Mar 31 2020 at 19:34, on Zulip):

it's already in the works

eddyb (Mar 31 2020 at 19:34, on Zulip):

yeah because the compiler is not properly split into crates

centril (Mar 31 2020 at 19:34, on Zulip):

(there's a PR)

eddyb (Mar 31 2020 at 19:35, on Zulip):

at least now I'm less attached to librustc_middle existing because I dislike the "middle" naming (the preexisting one) :P

eddyb (Mar 31 2020 at 19:35, on Zulip):

maybe we should have explicit _data crates

lol, just opened one, ok

Jonas Schievink (Mar 31 2020 at 19:36, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis you're even assigned to the fix :P

centril (Mar 31 2020 at 19:36, on Zulip):

https://github.com/rust-lang/rustc-dev-guide/pull/642 ^^

eddyb (Mar 31 2020 at 19:36, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis have you seen this interface yet btw? https://github.com/notifications/beta?query=reason%3Aparticipating

Jonas Schievink (Mar 31 2020 at 19:36, on Zulip):

oh, that repo

I don't understand

eddyb (Mar 31 2020 at 19:43, on Zulip):

I hated the rustc::middle module

eddyb (Mar 31 2020 at 19:43, on Zulip):

now rustc_middle includes that word too

eddyb (Mar 31 2020 at 19:44, on Zulip):

@centril kept wanting to split up rustc and it felt wrong to me

eddyb (Mar 31 2020 at 19:44, on Zulip):

now I'm less attached

eddyb (Mar 31 2020 at 19:44, on Zulip):

(just because of the name change)

eddyb (Mar 31 2020 at 19:44, on Zulip):

it feels less central

Tshepang Lekhonkhobe (Mar 31 2020 at 19:46, on Zulip):

alright

@Jonas Schievink huh?

Jonas Schievink (Mar 31 2020 at 19:50, on Zulip):

nevermind, I confused the repos, you were assigned to a PR that fixes the link in the rust readme
