# Running Rustfmt from Atom
Rustfmt is included with the Rust Language Server, itself provided by [ide-rust](https://atom.io/packages/ide-rust).
`apm install ide-rust`
Once installed a file is formatted with `ctrl-shift-c` or `cmd-shift-c`, also available in context menu.
Another way is to install [Beautify](https://atom.io/packages/atom-beautify), you
can do this by running `apm install atom-beautify`.
There are 2 settings that need to be configured in the atom beautifier configuration.
- Install rustfmt as per the [readme](README.md).
- Open the atom beautifier settings
Go to Edit->Preferences. Click the packages on the left side and click on setting for atom-beautifier
- Set rustfmt as the beautifier
Find the setting labeled *Language Config - Rust - Default Beautifier* and make sure it is set to rustfmt as shown below. You can also set the beautifier to auto format on save here.
- Set the path to your rustfmt location
Find the setting labeled *Rust - Rustfmt Path*. This setting is towards the bottom and you will need to scroll a bit. Set it to the path for your rustfmt executable.
