doesn't seem to use r-a though

oliver (Apr 13 2021 at 14:44, on Zulip):

hmm my reading suggests RA is defacto recommended: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=26780237

Well, if you make an editor with LSP support, you don't have to pick sides. And that one doesn't have LSP support yet.

Laurențiu (Apr 13 2021 at 14:46, on Zulip):

Most people who try RA seem to stick with it, with some exceptions, but what matters in the end is https://www.rust-lang.org/tools

oliver (Apr 13 2021 at 14:48, on Zulip):

I thought atom is no longer supported

Jonas Schievink [he/him] (Apr 13 2021 at 14:49, on Zulip):

TIL https://github.com/rust-lang/atom-ide-rust

Jonas Schievink [he/him] (Apr 13 2021 at 14:49, on Zulip):

it even uses rust-analyzer

oliver (Apr 13 2021 at 14:50, on Zulip):

too bad it's for an abandoned project

Jonas Schievink [he/him] (Apr 13 2021 at 14:53, on Zulip):

is it though? I don't see that stated anywhere

oliver (Apr 13 2021 at 14:53, on Zulip):

atom being no longer supported is common knowledge

Jonas Schievink [he/him] (Apr 13 2021 at 14:54, on Zulip):

neither the website nor the repo say anything about that, so I don't think that's correct

Jonas Schievink [he/him] (Apr 13 2021 at 14:55, on Zulip):

it might be true that many users have switched to VS Code, but that doesn't make atom unsupported

Laurențiu (Apr 13 2021 at 14:57, on Zulip):

Latest release is v1.55.0 (2021-03-09), seems supported to me

Jonas Schievink [he/him] (Apr 13 2021 at 15:03, on Zulip):

that thread does not seem to confirm that it's dead though?

Jonas Schievink [he/him] (Apr 13 2021 at 15:03, on Zulip):

well, anyways

oliver (Apr 13 2021 at 15:07, on Zulip):

well _dead_ is pretty high bar for software at this point, I think it's slightly more fair to say it's been abandoned

oliver (Apr 13 2021 at 15:48, on Zulip):

I would think that Atom could be replaced in that list

oliver (Apr 13 2021 at 15:48, on Zulip):

if not should be replaced

Laurențiu (Apr 13 2021 at 17:35, on Zulip):

It has bi-monthly releases and users who swear by it, I don't see the point. Anyway, we can't easily change that list, otherwise RA would be mentioned there.

oliver (Apr 13 2021 at 18:48, on Zulip):

it would be removed, but that isn't easy
