To answer the best practices part:

  1. Rust
  2. .rs
  3. Programming language
  4. http://doc.rust-lang.org/
  5. http://doc.rust-lang.org/0.11.0/rust.html#keywords
  6. http://doc.rust-lang.org/0.11.0/rust.html#comments
  7. http://doc.rust-lang.org/0.11.0/rust.html#symbols
  8. http://doc.rust-lang.org/nightly/intro.html

A most useful link is an XML file to an IDE support plug-in for QtCreator. Most info can be extracted from it. This is file from Kate, which is an editor, but the language XML file is said to be understood by QtCreator. Link: https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/blob/master/src/etc/kate/rust.xml

Eagerly awaiting your thoughts,

Máté

Hello,

Thanks for the suggestion.  We will mark it down, although it appears that the language is still a work in progress based on the documentation.

The language specification is coming to an end, and the 1.0 release candidate is due this winter, so practically nuances might change, but many text editors went ahead and done the syntax highlighting anyway (as the Kate link suggests), since the core is pretty much polished out. This has not been true if one had looked at the specs a year ago.

Anyhow, given that Rust has a very good chance of becoming the next C++, (equally performant, marginally more expressive in abstraction, a LOT more safer) it only makes sense to write support for it where applicable.

Rust 1.0 has been released: http://blog.rust-lang.org/2015/05/15/Rust-1.0.html

The latest build of this product (v3.3.0029) was released 6 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
