    Granular caching, development shell, Nix & Rust integration

    For finished binaries, you don't have to provide a Nix build because it can also be done externally as shown in the RustAnalyzer example. The flake is including RustAnalyzer source and RustAnalyzer has no idea and doesn't have to care.

  • Cargo

    The Rust package manager

    In this case the libary is cargo

  • 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.

  • naersk

    Build rust crates in Nix. No configuration, no code generation, no IFD. Sandbox friendly. [maintainer: @Patryk27]

    Have a look at naersk, it neither requires generated Nix files nor IFD.
