Hi there, is there a way to navigate to symbols in the std lib using xref? So I'm happily coding and I think "remind me what the
Array methods are" so I want to type "M-x xref-somethingArray" and up pops
Array. What magic do I replace
This works perfectly if I type
Array in a
.rs file in the main buffer, put my point on it, and navigate to it that way (
C-h . or
M-.), but I don't want to have to type the code first.
Is there a way of navigating the std lib from the command line?
With the LSP workspace symbol search, you can type
Whatever* and it will search in all dependencies. With
lsp-mode, that would be the
lsp-ivy-workspace-symbol command. I don't use eglot, so I don't know how it exposes this functionality (but the
* thing is a rust-analyzer function and should work with every client).
unfortunately that doesn't seem to work (
C-u M-x xref-find-definitions<cr>Option*<cr>) shows "No definition found for Option*.
I'll keep playing - I might cave in and install one of the completion frameworks (Company or Vertico?) to see if that can do any magic for me...
Ah! It is
Option* ;-). Thanks for the nudge @fdiebold
Both should work (RA just looks for a
* anywhere in the string), but maybe xref strips it away at the end or something like that.
