    I am using nom / nom_locate to build the parser side because I've done a handful of other projects with it, and I plan to use tower-lsp to hook up the language server side.

    I realize this might not be for everyone, but I'm writing it in Rust using Lib-ruby-parser and tower-lsp: two existing libraries that handle a bunch of the heavy lifting for me. I'm more productive in Rust than with Ruby at this point, despite doing Ruby full time for 15 years, plus I really really don't want to have to deal with a slow LSP--that was the whome impetus for this project. I started in the spring, made a bunch of headway, then backtracked to redo the internals to make it easier to handle monkeypatching, overriding/redefining of methods, etc. across your project.
  • Language Server Protocol
    3 projects | /r/Compilers | 21 Jul 2022 is a generalized LSP implementation in a lower-level language (Rust) so you may get a better idea by reading through that repo. It seems that the server opens a TCP socket that the client later connects to, but I'm not really sure.

    A LSP is just an api implemented to Microsoft's LSP spec. You can implement that API however you wish but something like tower-lsp can do a lot of the heavy lifting for you.

    Mine all use [tower-lsp]( for the LSP protocol stuff, and then either [Tree-sitter]( or [Nom]( If I do another I'll probably try [Chumsky]( which combines some of the advantages of both.
