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.
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: https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugins/nightly/8182 - TOML: https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugins/nightly/8195
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.
The plugin should be compatible with any Intellij based IDE starting from build
143.2287.1. This includes all 2016.1 releases and newer.For example, the
minimum supported IDEA version is 15.0.4, the minimum supported CLion version
is 1.2. See
Help > About menu in the IDE to learn the build version you are using.
