This project aims to implement an editor and language agnostic backend with the initial scope of supporting:
- Code completion
- Going to definitions/implementations
- Going to the documentation
The project was born out of a growing frustration with the badly architectured Sublime Text code completion plugins SublimeClang, SublimeJava and CompleteSharp. Either large code rewrites would have to be made or the code had to be written from scratch to amend their weaknesses. I decided to go with the latter approach.
Go was chosen as the one language to rule them all because put simply, it has rocked my socks off and continue to do so as I discover more about it. It's a joy to work with and its expressiveness, yet simplicity results in beautiful code that reads like a haiku.
Collaborators wanting to aid the project are welcome to submit pull requests and/or open up a new issue number for discussing implementation details not already discussed in the existing issues list.
