Hi all, new Rust user here. I have a question that I hope you can help me with.
I have installed Rust in my main OS and I've also installed the rust-analyzer plugin in VS Code. When I press the 'Run' option of the rust-analyzer codelens, by default, it runs the following code:
'cargo run --package my_package_name --bin my_package_name'
My question is this... is there any way that I can modify the default behaviour so that the '--quiet' flag can be used i.e when I press the 'Run' option, VS Code will run this code instead:
'cargo run --quiet --package my_package_name --bin my_package_name'?
Many thanks for your help.
hi, My usual practice is to run commands directly on the terminal.
you can configure a task on the terminal, which will be in your project Generate a task.json under the .vscode directory
"command": "run --quiet",
"label": "rust: cargo run --quiet"
many thanks for this James. Using your original code as a template, I managed to create a task, but I had to place the "--quiet" flag into a separate "args" section to get the whole thing to work (as shown below):
"label": "rust: cargo run --quiet",
Me too, I think that this would be a great feature to have, shame it didn't get much traction in the community. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.
All the best.
