  • How to prevent rust-analyzer (rust lsp) from checking code on each save
    2 projects | /r/neovim | 5 Dec 2023
    I am using rustaceanvim and rust.vim.
  • Issue with syntax highlighting in rust with rust-analyzer
    2 projects | /r/neovim | 18 Apr 2023
    When the file first loads, it uses the syntax defined in the $VIMRUNTIME/syntax/rust.vim file from rust.vim, which is what I want, but after a few seconds (probably once rust-analyzer loads and runs), it changes the highlighting to use different colours (there's probably a better way to describe it, but a video is easier to show). This colour change also happens when I write the file (and rust-analyzer runs again).
  • Can’t run specific test via LSP
    3 projects | /r/neovim | 1 Apr 2023
    Or this, it has example with running tests
  • Struggling to get basic diagnostic working with LSP
    3 projects | /r/neovim | 5 Dec 2022
    If you need basic syntax checking on leaving insert mode (without saving file), can be used
  • Is it possible to have Rust doc test comments highlighted in Neovim?
    2 projects | /r/neovim | 3 Dec 2022
    Seems like there's a tree-sitter solution, but I do want to note that this works out of the box with rust.vim: It might be the built-in Rust support is out of date -- using that repo as a plugin would do the trick.
  • Default mappings override user mappings in Rust ( [[ and ]] mappings )
    2 projects | /r/neovim | 28 Sep 2022
    Most of the customizations in the $VIMRUNTIME's rust ftplugin are guarded behind a flag (g:rust_fold, g:rustfmt_autosave,g:rust_recommended_style, etc.) to control enabling and disabling them, but for some reason the navigation mappings are unconditionally defined, with no flag to turn them off... It might be worth going through the issues in to see if that ever came up before.

    Is having rust.vim necessary if I'm using rust-tools already?
  • Need help for setting up neovim.
    6 projects | /r/neovim | 25 Jul 2022
    Primeagen has a series, you could also try spacevim or lunarvim( i prefer lunarvim). If you want to read the docs and setup yourself 1. lsp and code completion mentioned in #5. 2. treesitter 3. lsp handles that, you have to install java's lsp, this improves its look. 4. Make your own remaps, some languages have a plugin for this but i can't find one for java, this is the one for rust. 5. Install cmp and one of the snippet engines.
  • Rust with Vim
    1 project | /r/rust | 24 Mar 2022
    writing rust is the same regardless of which editor you use and using vim is the same regardless of what programming language you are in, so i dont think you need a tutorial neccissarily. ive been using this plugin for rust-specific features
  • Configure NeoVim for Rust Dev
    3 projects | /r/learnrust | 6 Feb 2022
    As for plugins for Rust development, I’d recommend Conquer of Completion (using the coc-rust-analyser coc plugin), Rust lang’s rust plugin, and the Toml plugin
