yesterday I tried out Visual Studio Codespaces (previously known at Visual Studio Online). it provides a VSCode editor directly in your browser, hooked up to some azure resources on the backend. The rust-analyzer extension pretty much Just Worked out of the box, with very little tweaking needed. Very cool stuff!
you can also hook it up to your own hardware (and not use an azure resources), so now i have a really solid rust-development experience on a chromebook, which is something i've wanted for a while
Would you be interested in making a tutorial about that, @Andrew Chin ?
Sure, I can write up something. Are you interested in the azure codespaces part? or the connected-to-your-own-hardware part?
Mostly connected to your own hardware. Thanks. That would be cool.
@matklad do you have any preference if this type of user docs goes into /docs/users/? or github wiki? or an independent blog?
please ping here as well, I’d be very interested in trying it out!
I'd say an extra section in the manual would work best: https://github.com/rust-analyzer/rust-analyzer/blob/f4f5fca10175b8d5fdfa36563c103f81b2b0acd3/docs/user/readme.adoc
