  • GitHub repo LiteIDE

    Project mention: What is wrong with VSCode IntelliSense for GO? | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-12-20

    I mostly use VS Code, too (or rather VSCodium), but also recommend you try LiteIDE as it's exceptionally fast.

    C/C++/ObjC language server supporting cross references, hierarchies, completion and semantic highlighting

    Project mention: Fleet, a Lightweight IDE from JetBrains | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-11-29

    > Have you tried a C/C++ lsp server like https://github.com/MaskRay/ccls?

    I never tried it and to me that's not acceptable or desirable. I want an IDE/text editor that works, and not adopt yet another tool that needs maintenance and configuration and attention.
