Note about using the Language Server Protocol
A "LSP" server is an external application that monitors your project and source code.
It can provide linting and very accurate auto-complete suggestions, among many other things.
You will have to provide (or write) your own LSP server.
A work in progress LSP server can be found here.
Useful LSP links for server developers:
VS Code specific information
Official LSP specifications
Note about using formatting
Formatting is currently handled externally.
You will have to install a BlitzMax specific formatter.
(Unless your LSP server handles it)
The extension will guide you through this process on the first format.
Q. What languages are supported?
- A. Only BlitzMax NG is officially supported.
You can enable the 'Legacy Mode' build option for basic BlitzMax Vanilla/Legacy build support.
(I highly recommend you upgrade to BlitzMax NG)
Q. Why is the outlines view and breadcrumbs not working?
- A. These features are provided by the LSP server.
Make sure your current LSP supports these features.
Q. I've found an issue / I'd like to make a feature request, what do I do?
Q. How do I
<do this or that> in VS Code?
