Clippy is the official linter of the Rust language. Clippy helps you to write clean, idiomatic and most importantly correct code. In this talk we first look at how Clippy is used. After that we look into the internals of Clippy and discover how it works. For that, we’ll also get a bit into the internals of rustc. In the end I’ll talk about why we at Clippy like dogfood so much.
