MET.rs: An IDE for Rust

#1

Hello. I’ll announce a new Rust IDE, MET.rs.
It has got a simple interface written in Python, Kivy.
It’s link:

Good to see another IDE :slight_smile: . It’ll be great if you can show some screenshots on the github page.

Could you add some kind of installation instructions? I was able to run it only with some trial and error (by manually installing kivy, kivy.deps.sdl2 and kivy.deps.glew), this is not very obvious (or should I have done this with the help of pyinstaller)?

upd: pyinstaller didn’t help, by the way - only the direct launch through python main.py worked.

Yes you are right. I’ll add some scrrenshots.

I am working on adding dependencies to the repository and a run.bat.
I update this message when it is done.

Update: You can use run.bat to run easily and you don’t need to install dependencies.

Tons of deps…

From a first glance it seems as if I have to install windows and python at least…

#7

No. You don’t need to install Python. Only run run.bat.
It is made with Kivy, so it is normal to seeing many dependencies.

#8

Oh, it vendors its own python… It still depends on windows… And 20+ gig is nothing I’d call “no dependencies”.

Any plans to make it available for Mac os and Linux?

#9

I must vendor a Python because everyone hasn’t got a Python.
And yes, I’m going to make it’s Linux and Mac OS versions.

#10

You do not need to vendor it… Especially not in your git repository…

Just make clear as butter cream that python needs to be installed, or provide a proper windows installation program that optionally is able to install python.

Good idea. An installation screen would be better and cleaner. Thanks for this good idea.
