Visual Studio Code (VSC) extensions - Search crates.io


#1

Hi,

I created a VSC extension for crates suggestions in Cargo.toml file called Search crates.io. It uses the crates.io’s search API and displays a list of suggestions along with some brief crate’s description and its max version (see the demo gif on the linked website).

Currently it provides a basic functionality. In the future, I plan to detect if the cursor is positioned within the [dependencies] section of the Cargo.toml file.

Thanks in advance for comments & suggestions!.

Both Atom and VSC are built on Electron. I tried both, and I found Atom to be much faster and better looking. So I want to have a rust assistant for Atom.

Thanks @senator. For now, I have no plans of supporting Atom, but maybe in the future? In the meantime, I encourage you to check out the VSCode plugin :wink:
