A Menu for Rust Developers



This is a Cinnamon applet that give you shortcuts to many Rust documentations.


This applet requires at least Cinnamon 4.4.8 or newer. This version assumes you’re using Rust 1.37.0 or later with edition="2018" in Cargo.toml of all projects to use Rust 2018 Edition idioms.

To install rustup, you have to run on a terminal :

curl -sSf | sh

Then, restart your terminal.


Download and enable via cinnamon settings.


The shortcuts are :

  • main local documentation, edition 2018
  • Rust local project directory. If you don't want to modify the applet, this directory must be nammed "RUST PROJECTS". If you want an other name, modify line 16 of file "~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/rust-menu@jerrywham/applet.js". You should then restart cinnamon.
