  • crates.nvim - a helper for managing versions

    Hi there! When working on a rust project in the past I found it to be a major annoyance to manage a Cargo.toml in vim. Especially checking the version of each crate manually to see if there were updates. I found vim-crates, which was a great improvement to my previous workflow, by showing out of date crates, but still left me wanting more.

What are some alternatives?
