When will clippy be stable?


#1

Just tried to install clippy. Needs nightly to compile. I’m fairly new here, but I’d like to stay stable as long as I can… is that not a valid goal (honest question).


#2

Clippy hooks directly into the compiler to bolster the lints, which isn’t going to be stable for a long time, if ever.

Using nightly for local development is no big deal ; as long as your CI is stable then you get tools like clippy and compilation improvements for local development.

We have a plan for distributing clippy via rustup, so that it will work with stable rustc too, but there’s no ETA on that yet.

Depending on the feature set, it could also have a mode where it hooks in to RLS for IDE workflows.
