    Sweet! Was thinking of returning to VS Code for Rust, this just gave me the motivation to finally do it :)

      I set this up earlier today in nvim. Works well!

        Any thoughts on the effects of auto-complete on the developer? Eg faster typing, but less familiarity with the language because of reduced memory effort.

          In my experience it mostly saves the time that I’d usually spend going to the documentation website, finding the type that I need and scrolling through the methods to find the one that I want – I usually remember the “it’s in there somewhere” part but not the name. Autocompletion is a huge timesaver. I don’t feel like it’s a different learning experience, the end result is pretty much the same.

            For me, ide features are not about time, they are about flow. In an IDE, I am writing a depth first search, in a bare text editor, I am fixing the text of my code to conform to the actual syntax of the language.
