Hey #Rust aceans - What do you edit in?

I'm using VSCode a lot, but I don't really feel like it's all that solid at completion and helping me code better.

@Eden I'm still very new to rust, but I've been happy with (neo)vim with racer/RLS

…but then it'd probably take a lot to convince me to leave vim—it does have that effect on people :)

@codesections I've been a little pushed towards kakoune on mac, I'm still trying it out, but I know a lot of people like it as a kinda-like-vim :) I do quite like vim though, it's just a shame it doesn't seem to fit well with a windows laptop!

@Eden @codesections vim actually works pretty good on Windows if you get the gVim builds. NeoVim is pretty terrible on Windows though.

I really like the idea of Kakoune and I think they're absolutely doing the modal editing and commands right, but it's absolute hell for anyone who is used to Vim due to all the muscle memory.

I'm trying IntelliJ right now, but I'll try gVim after, thanks!

Yup! Tried to learn it recently and I had to start writing it down on notecards because I kept vimming it.

I do wish they had a better intro like Vim for "Here's what you need to get started, and here's how to do common tasks"

@Eden
I haven't used it myself, but the #intellij #Rust plugin has a good reputation afaik. It's also not based on RLS/racer, unlike most other IDE integrations (including vscode)
