A Go Language Server based on the Go Extension for Visual Studio Code
Wraps the VSCode Go extension from Microsoft into a language server, such that its functionality can be reused with other LSP-aware clients.
In the first iteration we will mock VSCode APIs or simulate their behavior backed by an LSP. We will maintain this as a fork of the original repository such that we can easily pick up incoming improvements of that by just rebasing. Once we got more confidence, we’d probably refactor the VSCode specific parts away.
Mismatches and Challenges
- There is no such thing as the
activeTextEditorin LSP. For services that have a
TextDocumentItem, we set it before calling the service impl, but for other services, e.g.
executeCommandwe cannot make sure that they are performed on the correct document.
- We have to use/mock/adapt a lot of global variables
Make sure the
go command is available from your path and that the GOPATH environment variable points to where your go packages are installed. Some go packages are necessary:
go get -u -v github.com/nsf/gocode go get -u -v github.com/uudashr/gopkgs/cmd/gopkgs go get -u -v github.com/ramya-rao-a/go-outline go get -u -v github.com/acroca/go-symbols go get -u -v golang.org/x/tools/cmd/guru go get -u -v golang.org/x/tools/cmd/gorename go get -u -v github.com/fatih/gomodifytags go get -u -v github.com/haya14busa/goplay/cmd/goplay go get -u -v github.com/josharian/impl go get -u -v github.com/tylerb/gotype-live go get -u -v github.com/rogpeppe/godef go get -u -v golang.org/x/tools/cmd/godoc go get -u -v github.com/zmb3/gogetdoc go get -u -v golang.org/x/tools/cmd/goimports go get -u -v sourcegraph.com/sqs/goreturns go get -u -v github.com/golang/lint/golint go get -u -v github.com/cweill/gotests/... go get -u -v github.com/alecthomas/gometalinter go get -u -v honnef.co/go/tools/... go get -u -v github.com/sourcegraph/go-langserver go get -u -v github.com/derekparker/delve/cmd/dlv go get -u -v github.com/davidrjenni/reftools/cmd/fillstruc
