I recently learned how modern IDE’s provide the kind of features Rust LS is targeting. For anyone else interested, here is a great video explaining the same: https://channel9.msdn.com/Blogs/Seth-Juarez/Anders-Hejlsberg-on-Modern-Compiler-Construction
Is racer going to be retired once the language server is deemed ready for production purposes?
My understanding from the RustConf keynote is that RLS will leverage racer for quicker answers and fallback to the compiler for more complex answers. Racer is a cargo dependency of the current project.
They should rename it “rustd”!
