Syntax highlighting for Rust


Rust is a new language and still has a small community, so its not a mainstream language. But I have been playing with it and its really cool.

I use Atom for my JS projects and would love to use it with Rust but the lack of syntax highlighting makes it a deal breaker.

Would be nice to get Rust syntax highlighting added to Atom. A package would work too, but would be nice to have it built-in with the Atom’s syntax highlighter.


There are already a couple options for Rust syntax highlighting in Atom:


The only packages included with Atom are the ones that the devs guarantee they will be able to maintain, and are broad enough to theoretically be useful to everyone. Languages like C and HTML are both common and not volatile, so it’s easy to keep them up to date if anything does change.
