  • [LSP] what does this mean? what should I answer?
    3 projects | | 14 Aug 2022
    Lsp (Language Server Protocol) is a protocol that is used to build interchangeable Language-Servers that enable IDE-like features in Emacs and other programs. For example, though lsp-mode, elgot or lsp-bridge.

  • Nimlangserver Announcement
    7 projects | | 3 Jul 2022
    nimlangserver is an implementation of Language Server Protocol with the goal to make nim IDE experience more mature. The main difference between nimlangserver and the existing nimlsp is that nimlangserver runs nimsuggest in a separate process and that nimlangserver is using a newly introduced version of nimsuggest v3(see bellow). nimlangserver is currently integrated in VScode via vscode-nim and in Emacs via lsp-mode but adding integraion with other editors should be trivial.

    I couldn't get it to work. My modeline says LSP[Disconnected]. I found this old thread but it wasn't very helpful. Does anyone have a solution for this?
  • Support for SQL (sqls) lsp server
    2 projects | | 23 May 2022
    I'd like to use lsp-sql and I am not sure how to go about this! I got the LSP server installed. The part that confusing me is lsp-sql is not a package in its own and I was expecting to see the lsp-sql* commands to appear when M-x! Any suggestions?
  • Unable to setup lsp-mode with lsp-pyright

    I'm using Emacs 28.1 on macOS 11.6.6 (installed with brew) and want to setup a Python IDE with lsp-mode and lsp-pyright. My (not full) init.el looks like this (LSP and Python setups are at the bottom of the file):

  • Why LSP?
    14 projects | | 25 Apr 2022
    I've had a terrible experience with lsp-mode, gopls and Emacs 27. Minor issues like inconsistencies and CPU/RAM hogging that requires manual restarts, and the major one that made me stop using it is that Emacs would frequently crash when editing Go files.

    I reported this to lsp-mode, but they kicked the can over to Emacs[1], which I never bothered reporting. The fact this is now a combination of tools with no clear reporting path when something goes wrong is awful UX.

    Every few months I update the entire setup with hopes things improve, but eventually I always get the crashes. I would really like for this to work, as the DX when it does is great, but for me it's just not there yet.
