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!

Andrew Chin (May 07 2020 at 13:42, on Zulip):

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 ?

Andrew Chin (May 21 2020 at 13:14, on Zulip):

Sure, I can write up something. Are you interested in the azure codespaces part? or the connected-to-your-own-hardware part?

Yerkebulan Tulibergenov (May 21 2020 at 20:01, on Zulip):

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?

Roland Kuhn (May 24 2020 at 06:44, on Zulip):

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
