Topic: Which plugin to use in VSCode


Sander van Harmelen (Aug 21 2020 at 13:00, on Zulip):

I'm used to vim, but want to give VSCode a try... Now I noticed that there is a Rust extension and a rust-analyzer extension. I read that the first one can be configured to use either RLS or RA, I prefer RA, so should I use and configure that one, or do I need the latter extension? Or do they work together and do I need both? Thanks!

Florian Diebold (Aug 21 2020 at 13:00, on Zulip):

you should not use both. Currently the rust-analyzer extension works much better with rust-analyzer; the RA integration in the Rust extension is still WIP

Sander van Harmelen (Aug 21 2020 at 13:02, on Zulip):

Ok, then I'll give that a try. Thanks!

Can we drop the "the project is in alpha status: it is already useful in practice, but can't be considered stable" blurb from the Matketplace page?

Florian Diebold (Jul 01 2021 at 10:44, on Zulip):

I guess the idea was to do that when the plugin becomes officially official :grimacing:

Laurențiu (Jul 01 2021 at 10:44, on Zulip):

Well, it might be unofficial, but it's clearly not alpha-quality? :grimacing:

I believe it's a matter of support not quality

Laurențiu (Jul 01 2021 at 11:30, on Zulip):

We probably have better support than vscode-rust

+1 on rephrasing it! Would do it later unless anyone beats me to it, but the motto should reflect two opposing facts:

matklad (Jul 01 2021 at 13:48, on Zulip):

I guess, "pre 1.0" is the right way to put it
