  • minicli

    A minimalist framework for command-line applications in PHP

  • In case you didn't click on the link to intelephense, you should know that is a language server for php. If you just want to test the code I show here, you don't need the php interpreter installed, just the source code of a php project. You can use this repository: minicli, is a decent size codebase and doesn't depend on any other php libraries.

  • language-server-protocol

    Defines a common protocol for language servers.

  • A language server is an external program that follows the Language Server Protocol. The LSP specification defines what type of messages a language server can receive, and also how it should respond. The idea here is that any tool that follows the LSP specification can communicate with a language server.

  • vscode-intelephense

    PHP intellisense for Visual Studio Code

  • I'm going to use intelephense to show the minimal configuration needed to setup a language server in Neovim.

  • nvim-lspconfig

    Quickstart configs for Nvim LSP

  • If we can't find the basic usage in the documentation we can go to nvim-lspconfig's github repository. In there we look for a folder called server_configurations, this contains configuration files for a bunch of language servers.

  • rust-analyzer

    A Rust compiler front-end for IDEs

  • For example, intelephense can show diagnostics in real time, there is no need to save the file to get new diagnostics. But rust-analyzer, the language server for rust, can only update diagnostics after saving the file.

  • ruff-lsp

    A Language Server Protocol implementation for Ruff.

  • Here's another example: ruff-lsp, a language server for python. It describes itself as a linter and code formatter. As far as I can tell ruff-lsp does not provide code completions or semantic highlights.

  • typescript-language-server

    TypeScript & JavaScript Language Server

  • Sometimes a language server can support multiple filetypes. An example of this is tsserver, the language server for javascript and typescript. In this case a filetype plugin can still work but there is an easier way to go about it.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.
