Scribble: Rust Analyzer from Source

October 5, 2022
rust

I'm developing on a FreeBSD machine and rust-analyzer is not available as a pre-build release.

Luckily, it's easy to build rust-analyzer from source. Just clone the repository and run:

cargo xtask install --server

I'm on Emacs, so I only need the server, hence the --server argument. If you are using Visual Studio Code, don't add it.
