IntelliJ Rust

Open-source Rust plugin for IntelliJ-based IDEs


Stable builds

IntelliJ Rust is in active development, and we regularly publish new stable builds to the JetBrains plugin repository. You can download and install them directly from Settings / Preferences | Plugins | Marketplace in your IDE.

Nightly builds

In addition to stable releases, we also ship nightly snapshots of the intellij-rust development branch. To use the nightly channel, add a custom plugin repository and set the following URL:

Compatible IDEs

The plugin is compatible with all Intellij-based IDEs like IDEA, CLion, or PyCharm. The latest plugin version supports the latest released platform version (for example, 2019.2).

Bug reports and feature requests

Please use our tracker. You can get there quickly right from the IDE: call Create New Issue on a selected piece of code, and you’ll jump to a pre-filled issue creating form.

Also feel free to ping us on Gitter.



Intelligent Rust

editor features

IntelliJ Rust brings JetBrains-quality language support and full IDE experience to your Rust workflow.

Rust becomes native to IDEA, CLion, and other IntelliJ IDEs with smart coding assistance, seamless Cargo support, and built-in test runner.

In CLion, you get even more: fully-fledged debugger, CPU profiler, and Valgrind memcheck.
