IntelliJ Rust

Rust plugin for IntelliJ IDEA*

*work-in-progress, expect bugs and missing features


Getting alpha builds

IntelliJ Rust is currently in the alpha stage of development. When we reach some acceptable level of stability, we publish alpha builds to the IntelliJ’s main plugin repository. You can download and install these builds directly from Plugins > Browse repositories screen in your IDE.

As this is a preview release, something might go wrong. So, be brave to face some nasty bugs. If you find one, we would very appreciate if you file an issue on our bugtracker or ping us on our chat.

Setting up nightly builds

In addition to preview releases, we also ship pre-release builds of intellij-rust and intellij-toml in the nightly channel.

To use them you need to follow the instructions of adding additional plugin repository and paste the URL for the one you need:

- Rust:

Nightly builds are daily snapshots of current development branch. So, it’s natural that there may be even more bugs than in alpha channel. If you find one, we would very appreciate if you file an issue on our bugtracker or ping us on our chat.

Compatible IDEs

The plugin should be compatible with any Intellij based IDE like IDEA, CLion or PyCharm. Latest plugin is guranteed to support the latest released major platform version (2017.3 at the moment of writing), it may support some previous or EAP versions. See Help > About menu for IDE version and Settings > Plugins menu for plugin version.
