Do you have some time to chat about how to best utilize rust-project.json (now and what you're envisioning for the future?)

matklad (Jun 04 2020 at 16:40, on Zulip):

In general, yes, but not right now :)

Drop me a line when you have time (woody77 at gmail works just fine).

Hi @matklad , was wondering if you could answer a few questions regarind rust-project.json --

  1. The rust-project.json-example linked from the user documentation in rust-analyzer doesn't exist.
  2. It seems like I also need to explicitly add all the stdlib deps, is there a way to generate this from something?
    Thanks :)

  2. no, sysroot deps need to be manually specified

I get 404 not found on rust-project.json-example

@matklad It is marked as private.

hm, @matklad shouldn't there be a rust-project.json file in the example repository?

Phil H (Jul 15 2020 at 08:38, on Zulip):

(currently trying to figure out if we can use it to make RA work with Clippy+rustc deps)

matklad (Jul 15 2020 at 08:39, on Zulip):

it is specified inline in .vscode/settings.json

Phil H (Jul 15 2020 at 08:39, on Zulip):

ohh, thanks :)

matklad (Jul 15 2020 at 08:40, on Zulip):

Note that the example is somewhat bad, so if you do any improvements during research, feel free to PR :)
