Rust Analyzer is an experimental IDE/latency-oriented Rust compiler. This is an emerging endeavour within the Rust ecosystem, which is aimed at improving the IDE experience with Rust.
Compiler performance has always been a major focus of Rust tooling development and compile times have been steadily improving across releases. However, as Igor Matuszewski explained in his Rust Belt Rust Conference talk, Rust IDE support is an area of active work:
This work is being carried through under the guidance of the RLS 2.0 working group, which includes among its main components Rust Analyzer. InfoQ has taken the chance to speak with Aleksey Kladov, main contributor to Rust Analyzer, and Rust Core Team member Steve Klabnik to learn more about it.
Lots of good stuff this week, including binary releases to GitHub.
