Today I Learned: Rust tooling came a long way

May 24, 2021

I bought the Hands-on Rust and needed to setup my editor (Visual Studio Code) to start working on my 2D dungeon crawler. Choose Rust Analyzer and could not be more impressed with the experience.

Also impressed with some of the Cargo helper tools, like cargo-edit to manage dependencies, cargo-audit to check for vulnerabilities and cargo-expand to expand macro's.

2021 is a great year to start learning Rust. Both the ecosystem and learning materials have reached a high level of maturity.
