Rust LSP Configuration
The details below describe how to install and configure the Rust language server found here
NOTE: This installation process assumes Rust has been installed on the machine.
Installing the Language Server
To install the language server run the following command:
rustup component add rls-preview rust-analysis rust-src
With the software installed test the installation by running
rls.exe --help at the command line prompt, which should result in the following output:
--version or -V to print the version and commit info
--help or -h for this message
--cli starts the RLS in command line mode
No input starts the RLS as a language server

panel apply the following configuration settings:
Program Type: Executable

Create a new Rust project as follow:
cargo new hello_world --bin
More details about Rust projects can be found here
2: Create a new Zeus workspace in the
hello_world folder and optionally add the
