    :crab: Small exercises to get you used to reading and writing Rust code!

    I actually got started with throwing together a basic version of this plugin, using rust-analyzer via null-ls to hobble along. Then I went through rustlings which is a repo of small exercises to help you get used to reading and writing Rust. Once I did that and got more used to Rust, I essentially did a full rewrite of the plugin with much better and more idiomatic Rust code.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
