PureScript language server

Node-based Language Server Protocol server for PureScript based on the PureScript IDE server (aka psc-ide / purs ide server). Used as the vscode plugin backend but should be compatible with other Language Server Client implementations.

The language server is a wrapper around the IDE server included as part of the compiler distribution, providing editing assistance and build features according to support available. This means that the server will start its own purs ide server instance to talk to for the project directory it is started in.

Features

  • Completion provider
  • Definition provider
  • Formatting provider
  • Document & workspace symbol providers
  • Hover provider
  • Code action provider
    • Compiler fix suggestions for imports/missing types
  • Build on save (via IDE server "fast rebuild" facility, certain limitations apply)
    • Provides diagnostics
  • Commands
    • Build (full build via purs compile / configured build command) - provides diagnostics
    • Case split
    • Add clause
    • Replace suggestion
    • Add completion import
    • Start IDE server
    • Stop IDE server
    • Restart IDE server
  • Config
    • purescript.*

Usage

This LSP implmementation is consumed by vscode and Atom plugins as a node module, and bundled along with those plugins.

To use with another LSP client, you will want to install this either globally or locally for npm, e.g.

npm i -g purescript-language-server

And then use the resulting executable, e.g. purescript-language-server --stdio.

This language server is based on vscode-languageserver-node which means it should support --stdio, --socket=[number], --node-ipc or --pipe methods of communication, see vscode-languageserver-node for details.

Formatting provider

The purescript-language-server comes with built-in support for purty for formatting PureScript code. purty itself is not bundled with purescript-language-server, so you must either install it globally (e.g. npm install -g purty), or locally in your project (e.g. npm install --save-dev purty). When a formatting operation is requested via a language server command, purescript-language-server will attempt to find purty in your $PATH. If you're using a local purty install, you can configure the language server to include your local npm install path (i.e. ./node_modules/.bin) using the purescript.addNpmPath setting. See below for information on configuring the language server for different editors.

VSCode

Use vscode-ide-purescript.

Atom

Use atom-ide-purescript.

Vim/LanguageClient_neovim

Use vimmer-ps.

Vim/CoC

Configuration with coc.nvim

Run :CocConfig and add "purescript" in the "languageserver" section as follows:

  "languageserver": {
    "purescript": {
      "command": "purescript-language-server",
      "args": ["--stdio"],
      "filetypes": ["purescript"],
      "trace.server": "off",
      "rootPatterns": ["bower.json", "psc-package.json", "spago.dhall"],
      "settings": {
        "purescript": {
          "addSpagoSources": true,
          "addNpmPath": true // Set to true if using a local purty install for formatting
          // etc
        }
      }
    }
  }

CoC can be configured to format your code using the purescript-language-server's formatting provider, which is backed by purty. If you don't have CoC-based code formatting setup in CoC already, you can add a command or key mapping like this:

command! -nargs=0  Format      :call CocAction('format')
nmap               <leader>f   :Format<cr>

If you want the formatter to run on save, run :CocConfig and add "purescript" to the "coc.preferences.formatOnSaveFiletypes":

  "coc.preferences.formatOnSaveFiletypes": [
    // ...other languages
    "purescript"
  ]

You can also organize PureScript imports in Vim with a command and/or key mapping like this:

command! -nargs=0  OrganizeImports :call CocAction('runCommand', 'editor.action.organizeImport')
nmap               <leader>o       :OrganizeImports<cr>

Other clients

Config may be supplied via client-push on startup (workspace.didChangeConfiguration), server-request (workspace.configuration), or at last resort by JSON object on the command line with --config option.

Config

See config defined in vscode plugin.

Usage with alternate backends

When using the language server together with alternate backends, the only requirement is to stop purs ide server from attempting to generate JS when rebuilding, this is done via the config

"purescript.codegenTargets": [ "corefn" ]

(and you should make sure the build command is in accordance with that, if used, eg specify backend in spago config).

Commands

Various commands are provided. Some are triggered via completion etc, some must be called explicitly from a LSP client.

purescript.build

No arguments. Provides diagnostics.

purescript.startPscIde

No arguments. Start IDE server according to configuration.

purescript.stopPscIde

No arguments. Stop running IDE server.

purescript.restartPscIde

No arguments. Stop any running IDE server then start a new one according to configuration.

purescript.addCompletionImport

Arguments: identifier, module, document URI.

purescript.addModuleImport

Arguments: module, qualifier, document URI.

purescript.getAvailableModules

No arguments. Get list of available modules.

purescript.replaceSuggestion

Arguments: document URI, replacement, replacement range.

purescript.search

Flex search for identifier.

Arguments: search text.

purescript.fixTypo

Arguments: document URI, line, character.

purescript.caseSplit-explicit

(Used to back the case split command in VS Code UI).

Arguments: document URI, line, character, type.

purescript.addClause-explicit

(Used to back the add clause command in VS Code UI).

Arguments: document URI, line, character.

purescript.typedHole-explicit

(Used to back the purescript.typedHole code action triggered in the VS Code UI)

Arguments: hole name, document URI, hole range, PscIde.Command.TypeInfo of chosen replacement option

Development

To develop (rather than use) this language server

  1. Clone this repo and npm install
  2. Make changes and npm run build
  3. Ensure the built module is picked up by your editor

For 3, if the editor integrates using the node module rather than standalone binary, I suggest using npm link - this will work for atom and vscode at least.

For atom, clone atom-ide-purescript and:

  1. In purescript-language-server run npm link, in atom-ide-purescript run npm link purescript-language-server
  2. In atom-ide-purescript run apm link to pick up local changes
  3. In atom-ide-purescript, run npm run bundle to build the plugin itself
  4. Reload any atom window to pick up changes

For vscode, clone vscode-ide-purescript and:

  1. Run npm install
  2. In purescript-language-server run npm link, in vscode-ide-purescript run npm link purescript-language-server
  3. Open vscode-ide-purescript in vscode (code .) and hit F5 to "launch extension"
  4. Use the newly launched Extension Development Host to test language server changes

See vscode plugin repo, atom plugin. Common code via purescript-ide-purescript-core.
