Topic: rust-analyzer in vscode over wsl

So, while working on chalk, I've shifted to using rust-analyzer running in VSCode (using WSL2 to run tests and things) -- I have to say, this is really nice. Just wanted to give a shout out :tada: to all the amazing progress that's been made since I last tried this. It's one thing to follow the updates, another to take it for a spin.

Is it better than Emacs tho? ^^

Almost anything is better than emacs :hear_no_evil:

in some ways yes, in some ways no, but the nice thing about running in WSL is I can Alt-Tab over to use emacs too (eg., to use magit)

I'm experimenting now with the VSCode over ssh support

since I often do most of my dev on a linux desktop that I ssh into
