Sublime Text 3 support for Rust


I am on Windows 7 and I would like to use Sublime Text 3 for editing Rust files. I am on Rust version 1.5.0.

I searched on the sublime site and found several packages listed on sublime text rust packages. I downloaded the first package on that page – the one published by rust-lang. I followed the instructions on the installation guide page. Afterwards I restarted sublime text.

However when I opened my .rs file, I did not see any syntax highlighting and every character was in white. I clicked on the View>Syntax menu, and I did not see Rust listed among the languages.

In folder AppData\Roaming\Sublime Text 3\Installed Packages, I can see a file called Package Control.sublime-package. I assume that indicates that the package was downloaded at the least.

What could be wrong? Do I have the right expectation for syntax highlighting? Anybody had success with this?


After you installed Package Control, just follow instruction on this page:
Rust package.

Install the Package Control package if you haven’t got it yet. Package Control is the best way to install packages for Sublime Text. See for instructions.

Open the palette (Ctrl+Shift+P or Command+Shift+P) in Sublime Text and select Package Control: Install Package and then select Rust from the list. That’s it.

P.S. Also, you can see another packages for sublime text for rust language on this page:
