SolidOak is a simple IDE for Rust. See the website for binary releases. It has the following features:
- An embedded copy of Neovim as its text editor
- On first launch, it will create ~/.soak and ~/.soakrc (equivalent to ~/.vim and ~/.vimrc)
- It starts off in "Easy Mode" (locked in insert mode) for Vim newbies, but you can toggle it off
- An easy-to-use GUI written with gtk-rs
- Buttons for common editing actions and a project tree that stays in sync with Neovim
- You can bypass the GUI and run it as a console app by passing the
Note: If neovim fails to build, try cloning it directly and running
make libnvim to get more specific errors.

The following instructions are a work in progress. Building does not currently work because msys2 does not contain a package for vte.
Install MSYS2 and run this in its shell:
pacman -S mingw-w64-x86_64-gtk3
In cmd.exe, install Rust's GNU toolchain and build:
rustup install stable-gnu set RUSTUP_TOOLCHAIN=stable-x86_64-pc-windows-gnu cargo build --release
