    I'm having the exact same issue as here where using async fn causes an error

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but format_args_capture still isn't supported yet.

    I often run into this issue, and the only way to solve it right now is to reload the entire VSCode window.
  • [Media] Program works but still rust-analysis in vs-code shows this error. Might be a bug?

    - cargo clippy will point out lots of other nice things you could do probably! If you use VS Code be sure to get and be sure to configure it to run cargo clippy on save, super useful way to get immediate feedback on the code.

    In this sense, I am very against having things like types which split stuff across linguistic category, rather than a slice of the domain. I think it’s much better to have, eg, types module in the http_api crate, and a separate types module in the persistsnce crate with somewhat duplicate definitions and explicit conversion between the two. I am a huge fan of writing tons of adaptor boilerplate like here:

    We started with a similar setup in rust-analyzer: obviously, when you want to convert X to Y, you need a trait for that, right? But then I’ve refactored that to just a bunch of functions in, and never looked back. In ra case, that was a case of concrete abstraction ( — all the callers wanted to convert specific X to specific Y, no one was using the trait generically.

    Seems so, and looks like there aren't any issues open for either case yet. Would you like to do the honors?

    You can either use rust-analyzer[1] (for which vscode is most well supported), or IntelliJ Rust [2]. Personally, I use `rust-analyzer` with vscode as a bevy developer.
