[NOTE] Rust + Eclipse, Learning

Install IDE

Installing Eclipse for Rust, not as extension to existing Eclipse installation.

Download from, https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/release/2019-09/r/eclipse-ide-rust-developers-includes-incubating-components

As long as the Rust env vars are set correction, nothing to configure.

Important Facts

When I evaluate new (to me) languages, I first check for followings:
  • Script, VM, or native
  • Thread supporting
  • Easy of Syntax
  • OOP, Functional
  • GUI support
  • Libraries: web, network, AI
  • Performance
  • Benefits over other comparable languages
  • Support and popularity
Rust generates native binary.  Comparable languages: C++, Go lang.  It seems faster than g++ and go lang.  It is quite popular, although I didn't hear anyone I know or heard using it.  It's also multi-paradigm - can do OOP and functional.  

So far, I got pretty good impression with Rust from just spending a few days over the weekend with Rust.  Simple/easy to install, and start coding, a lot of learning materials, good amount of sample code, good open source projects.  Compiling and running are very easy.

I just started to learn Rust -- so I'll see how it goes.
