I know Rails support is only partial at the moment, but I have installed the Solargraph gem, and am using the VSCode extension, and when I am in a Rails application, I am not getting any Rails-related completions/suggestions whatsoever.

I don't even get a suggestion for the "Rails" class. I just want to make sure I am not getting the wrong end of the stick in terms of what amount of Rails support Solargraph actually has? Solargraph itself is working fine - I am getting standard Ruby suggestions no problem.

There are a couple of things you can try.

  1. Make sure you have gem documentation installed by running yard gems.

  2. Add a .solargraph.yml file to the app's root directory (you can generate a default one by running solargraph config) and make the following change to the require section:

- actioncable
- actionmailer
- actionpack
- actionview
- activejob
- activemodel
- activerecord
- activestorage
- activesupport

That should get you closer, but it's still far from perfect. Improving Rails support has been on the roadmap for a while. The amount of runtime magic involved makes it challenging, but I have some updates in the works that should help.

I hope it's fine if I add my thoughts here. First of all, thanks for your work! I've found this thread after noticing that Solargraph wouldn't know how to handle a goto definition click on has_many :users, where I'd expect it to open the User class. I'm not sure how much runtime magic is involved here but having this would be a big improvement.
