LSP client/framework                                     *lsp* *LSP*

Nvim supports the Language Server Protocol (LSP), which means it acts as
a client to LSP servers and includes a Lua framework `vim.lsp` for building
enhanced LSP tools.

    https://microsoft.github.io/language-server-protocol/

LSP facilitates features like go-to-definition, find-references, hover,
completion, rename, format, refactor, etc., using semantic whole-project
analysis (unlike |ctags|).

QUICKSTART                                              *lsp-quickstart*

Nvim provides an LSP client, but the servers are provided by third parties.
Follow these steps to get LSP features:

  1. Install language servers using your package manager or by
     following the upstream installation instruction.

     A list of language servers is available at:

     https://microsoft.github.io/language-server-protocol/implementors/servers/

  2. Configure the LSP client per language server.
     A minimal example:

    vim.lsp.start({
      name = 'my-server-name',
      cmd = {'name-of-language-server-executable'},
      root_dir = vim.fs.dirname(vim.fs.find({'setup.py', 'pyproject.toml'}, { upward = true })[1]),
    })
 
     See |vim.lsp.start| for details.

  3. Configure keymaps and autocmds to utilize LSP features.
     See |lsp-config|.
<

                                                        *lsp-config*

Starting a LSP client will automatically report diagnostics via
|vim.diagnostic|. Read |vim.diagnostic.config| to learn how to customize the
display.

It also sets some buffer options if the options are otherwise empty and if the
language server supports the functionality.

- |omnifunc| is set to |vim.lsp.omnifunc|. This allows to trigger completion
  using |i_CTRL-X_CTRL-o|
- |tagfunc| is set to |vim.lsp.tagfunc|. This enables features like
  go-to-definition, |:tjump|, and keymaps like |CTRL-]|, |CTRL-W_]|,
  |CTRL-W_}| to utilize the language server.
- |formatexpr| is set to |vim.lsp.formatexpr| if both |formatprg| and
  |formatexpr| are empty. This allows to format lines via |gq| if the language
  server supports it.

To use other LSP features like hover, rename, etc. you can setup some
additional keymaps. It's recommended to setup them in a |LspAttach| autocmd to
ensure they're only active if there is a LSP client running. An example:

    vim.api.nvim_create_autocmd('LspAttach', {
      callback = function(args)
        vim.keymap.set('n', 'K', vim.lsp.buf.hover, { buffer = args.buf })
      end,
    })

 
The most used functions are:

- |vim.lsp.buf.hover()|
- |vim.lsp.buf.format()|
- |vim.lsp.buf.references()|
- |vim.lsp.buf.implementation()|
- |vim.lsp.buf.code_action()|


Not all language servers provide the same capabilities. To ensure you only set
keymaps if the language server supports a feature, you can guard the keymap
calls behind capability checks:

    vim.api.nvim_create_autocmd('LspAttach', {
      callback = function(args)
        local client = vim.lsp.get_client_by_id(args.data.client_id)
        if client.server_capabilities.hoverProvider then
          vim.keymap.set('n', 'K', vim.lsp.buf.hover, { buffer = args.buf })
        end
      end,
    })
 

To learn what capabilities are available you can run the following command in
a buffer with a started LSP client:


    :lua =vim.lsp.get_active_clients()[1].server_capabilities
 

Full list of features provided by default can be found in |lsp-buf|.

FAQ                                                     *lsp-faq*

- Q: How to force-reload LSP?
  A: Stop all clients, then reload the buffer.

     :lua vim.lsp.stop_client(vim.lsp.get_active_clients())
     :edit

- Q: Why isn't completion working?
  A: In the buffer where you want to use LSP, check that 'omnifunc' is set to
     "v:lua.vim.lsp.omnifunc":

     :verbose set omnifunc?

      Some other plugin may be overriding the option. To avoid that, you could
     set the option in an |after-directory| ftplugin, e.g.
     "after/ftplugin/python.vim".

- Q: How do I run a request synchronously (e.g. for formatting on file save)?
  A: Use the `_sync` variant of the function provided by |lsp-buf|, if it
     exists.

     E.g. code formatting:

     " Auto-format *.rs (rust) files prior to saving them
     autocmd BufWritePre *.rs lua vim.lsp.buf.formatting_sync(nil, 1000)

 

                                                           *lsp-vs-treesitter*
- Q: How do LSP and Treesitter compare?
  A: LSP requires a client and language server. The language server uses
     semantic analysis to understand code at a project level. This provides
     language servers with the ability to rename across files, find
     definitions in external libraries and more.

     Treesitter is a language parsing library that provides excellent tools
     for incrementally parsing text and handling errors. This makes it a great
     fit for editors to understand the contents of the current file for things
     like syntax highlighting, simple goto-definitions, scope analysis and
     more.

     LSP and Treesitter are both great tools for editing and inspecting code.

LSP API                                                 *lsp-api*

LSP core API is described at |lsp-core|.  Those are the core functions for
creating and managing clients.

The `vim.lsp.buf_…` functions perform operations for all LSP clients attached
to the given buffer. |lsp-buf|

LSP request/response handlers are implemented as Lua functions (see
|lsp-handler|). The |vim.lsp.handlers| table defines default handlers used
when creating a new client. Keys are LSP method names:

    :lua print(vim.inspect(vim.tbl_keys(vim.lsp.handlers)))
 

                                                                  *lsp-method*

Methods are the names of requests and notifications as defined by the LSP
specification. These LSP requests/notifications are defined by default:

    callHierarchy/incomingCalls
    callHierarchy/outgoingCalls
    textDocument/codeAction
    textDocument/completion
    textDocument/declaration*
    textDocument/definition
    textDocument/documentHighlight
    textDocument/documentSymbol
    textDocument/formatting
    textDocument/hover
    textDocument/implementation*
    textDocument/publishDiagnostics
    textDocument/rangeFormatting
    textDocument/references
    textDocument/rename
    textDocument/signatureHelp
    textDocument/typeDefinition*
    window/logMessage
    window/showMessage
    window/showMessageRequest
    workspace/applyEdit
    workspace/symbol

* NOTE: These are sometimes not implemented by servers.


                                                                 *lsp-handler*

lsp-handlers are functions with special signatures that are designed to handle
responses and notifications from LSP servers.

For |lsp-request|, each |lsp-handler| has this signature:

  function(err, result, ctx, config)
 
    Parameters: 
        {err}       (table|nil)
                        When the language server is unable to complete a
                        request, a table with information about the error is
                        sent. Otherwise, it is `nil`. See |lsp-response|.
        {result}    (Result | Params | nil)
                        When the language server is able to successfully
                        complete a request, this contains the `result` key of
                        the response. See |lsp-response|.
        {ctx}       (table)
                        Context describes additional calling state associated
                        with the handler. It consists of the following key,
                        value pairs:

                        {method}    (string)
                                    The |lsp-method| name.
                        {client_id} (number)
                                    The ID of the |vim.lsp.client|.
                        {bufnr}     (Buffer)
                                    Buffer handle, or 0 for current.
                        {params}    (table|nil)
                                    The parameters used in the original
                                    request which resulted in this handler
                                    call.
        {config}    (table)
                        Configuration for the handler.

                        Each handler can define its own configuration table
                        that allows users to customize the behavior of a
                        particular handler.

                        To configure a particular |lsp-handler|, see:
                            |lsp-handler-configuration|


    Returns: 
        The |lsp-handler| can respond by returning two values: `result, err`
        Where `err` must be shaped like an RPC error:
            `{ code, message, data? }`

        You can use |vim.lsp.rpc_response_error()| to create this object.

For |lsp-notification|, each |lsp-handler| has this signature:

  function(err, result, ctx, config)
 
    Parameters: 
        {err}       (nil)
                        This is always `nil`.
                        See |lsp-notification|
        {result}    (Result)
                        This contains the `params` key of the notification.
                        See |lsp-notification|
        {ctx}       (table)
                        Context describes additional calling state associated
                        with the handler. It consists of the following key,
                        value pairs:

                        {method}    (string)
                                        The |lsp-method| name.
                        {client_id} (number)
                                        The ID of the |vim.lsp.client|.
        {config}    (table)
                        Configuration for the handler.

                        Each handler can define its own configuration table
                        that allows users to customize the behavior of a
                        particular handler.

                        For an example, see:
                            |vim.lsp.diagnostic.on_publish_diagnostics()|

                        To configure a particular |lsp-handler|, see:
                            |lsp-handler-configuration|

    Returns: 
        The |lsp-handler|'s return value will be ignored.


                                                   *lsp-handler-configuration*

To configure the behavior of a builtin |lsp-handler|, the convenient method
|vim.lsp.with()| is provided for users.

  To configure the behavior of |vim.lsp.diagnostic.on_publish_diagnostics()|,
  consider the following example, where a new |lsp-handler| is created using
  |vim.lsp.with()| that no longer generates signs for the diagnostics:

    vim.lsp.handlers["textDocument/publishDiagnostics"] = vim.lsp.with(
      vim.lsp.diagnostic.on_publish_diagnostics, {
        -- Disable signs
        signs = false,
      }
    )
 
  To enable signs, use |vim.lsp.with()| again to create and assign a new
  |lsp-handler| to |vim.lsp.handlers| for the associated method:

    vim.lsp.handlers["textDocument/publishDiagnostics"] = vim.lsp.with(
      vim.lsp.diagnostic.on_publish_diagnostics, {
        -- Enable signs
        signs = true,
      }
    )
 
  To configure a handler on a per-server basis, you can use the {handlers} key
  for |vim.lsp.start_client()|

    vim.lsp.start_client {
      ..., -- Other configuration omitted.
      handlers = {
        ["textDocument/publishDiagnostics"] = vim.lsp.with(
          vim.lsp.diagnostic.on_publish_diagnostics, {
            -- Disable virtual_text
            virtual_text = false,
          }
        ),
      },
    }
 
  or if using 'nvim-lspconfig', you can use the {handlers} key of `setup()`:

    require('lspconfig').rust_analyzer.setup {
      handlers = {
        ["textDocument/publishDiagnostics"] = vim.lsp.with(
          vim.lsp.diagnostic.on_publish_diagnostics, {
            -- Disable virtual_text
            virtual_text = false
          }
        ),
      }
    }
 
  Some handlers do not have an explicitly named handler function (such as
  |on_publish_diagnostics()|). To override these, first create a reference
  to the existing handler:

    local on_references = vim.lsp.handlers["textDocument/references"]
    vim.lsp.handlers["textDocument/references"] = vim.lsp.with(
      on_references, {
        -- Use location list instead of quickfix list
        loclist = true,
      }
    )
 

                                                      *lsp-handler-resolution*
Handlers can be set by:


- Setting a field in vim.lsp.handlers.                      *vim.lsp.handlers*
    vim.lsp.handlers is a global table that contains the default mapping of
    |lsp-method| names to |lsp-handlers|.

    To override the handler for the `"textDocument/definition"` method:

    vim.lsp.handlers["textDocument/definition"] = my_custom_default_definition
 
- The {handlers} parameter for |vim.lsp.start_client|.
    This will set the |lsp-handler| as the default handler for this server.

    For example:

    vim.lsp.start_client {
      ..., -- Other configuration omitted.
      handlers = {
        ["textDocument/definition"] = my_custom_server_definition
      },
    }

- The {handler} parameter for |vim.lsp.buf_request()|.
    This will set the |lsp-handler| ONLY for the current request.

    For example:

    vim.lsp.buf_request(
      0,
      "textDocument/definition",
      definition_params,
      my_request_custom_definition
    )
 
In summary, the |lsp-handler| will be chosen based on the current |lsp-method|
in the following order:

1. Handler passed to |vim.lsp.buf_request()|, if any.
2. Handler defined in |vim.lsp.start_client()|, if any.
3. Handler defined in |vim.lsp.handlers|, if any.


                                                            *vim.lsp.log_levels*
Log levels are defined in |vim.log.levels|



VIM.LSP.PROTOCOL                                              *vim.lsp.protocol*

Module `vim.lsp.protocol` defines constants dictated by the LSP specification,
and helper functions for creating protocol-related objects.
https://github.com/microsoft/language-server-protocol/raw/gh-pages/_specifications/specification-3-14.md

For example `vim.lsp.protocol.ErrorCodes` allows reverse lookup by number or
name:

    vim.lsp.protocol.TextDocumentSyncKind.Full == 1
    vim.lsp.protocol.TextDocumentSyncKind[1] == "Full"
 


                                                                *lsp-response*
For the format of the response message, see:
    https://microsoft.github.io/language-server-protocol/specifications/specification-current/#responseMessage


                                                                *lsp-notification*
For the format of the notification message, see:
    https://microsoft.github.io/language-server-protocol/specifications/specification-current/#notificationMessage


                                                                *on-list-handler*

`on_list` receives a table with:

 - `items` table[], structured like |setqflist-what|
 - `title` string, title for the list.
 - `context` table|nil. `ctx` from |lsp-handler|

This table can be used with vim.fn.setqflist or vim.fn.setloclist. E.g.:

    local function on_list(options)
      vim.fn.setqflist({}, ' ', options)
      vim.api.nvim_command('cfirst')
    end

    vim.lsp.buf.definition{on_list=on_list}
    vim.lsp.buf.references(nil, {on_list=on_list})
 
If you prefer loclist do something like this:

    local function on_list(options)
      vim.fn.setloclist(0, {}, ' ', options)
      vim.api.nvim_command('lopen')
    end

After an LSP client attaches to a buffer. The |autocmd-pattern| is the
name of the buffer. When used from Lua, the client ID is passed to the
callback in the "data" table. Example:

    vim.api.nvim_create_autocmd("LspAttach", {
      callback = function(args)
        local bufnr = args.buf
        local client = vim.lsp.get_client_by_id(args.data.client_id)
        if client.server_capabilities.completionProvider then
          vim.bo[bufnr].omnifunc = "v:lua.vim.lsp.omnifunc"
        end
        if client.server_capabilities.definitionProvider then
          vim.bo[bufnr].tagfunc = "v:lua.vim.lsp.tagfunc"
        end
      end,
    })

Just before an LSP client detaches from a buffer. The |autocmd-pattern| is the
name of the buffer. When used from Lua, the client ID is passed to the
callback in the "data" table. Example:

    vim.api.nvim_create_autocmd("LspDetach", {
      callback = function(args)
        local client = vim.lsp.get_client_by_id(args.data.client_id)
        -- Do something with the client
        vim.cmd("setlocal tagfunc< omnifunc<")
      end,
    })
 
In addition, the following |User| |autocommands| are provided:


LspProgressUpdate                                          *LspProgressUpdate*
    Upon receipt of a progress notification from the server. See
    |vim.lsp.util.get_progress_messages()|.


LspRequest                                                        *LspRequest*
    After a change to the active set of pending LSP requests. See {requests}
    in |vim.lsp.client|.

Example:
    autocmd User LspProgressUpdate redrawstatus
    autocmd User LspRequest redrawstatus

buf_attach_client({bufnr}, {client_id})          *vim.lsp.buf_attach_client()*
    Implements the `textDocument/did…` notifications required to track a
    buffer for any language server.

    Without calling this, the server won't be notified of changes to a buffer.

    Parameters: 
        {bufnr}      (number) Buffer handle, or 0 for current
        {client_id}  (number) Client id


buf_detach_client({bufnr}, {client_id})          *vim.lsp.buf_detach_client()*
    Detaches client from the specified buffer. Note: While the server is
    notified that the text document (buffer) was closed, it is still able to
    send notifications should it ignore this notification.

    Parameters: 
        {bufnr}      (number) Buffer handle, or 0 for current
        {client_id}  (number) Client id


buf_is_attached({bufnr}, {client_id})              *vim.lsp.buf_is_attached()*
    Checks if a buffer is attached for a particular client.

    Parameters:

    Return: 
        2-tuple:
        • Map of client-id:request-id pairs for all successful requests.
        • Function which can be used to cancel all the requests. You could
          instead iterate all clients and call their `cancel_request()`
          methods.


                                                   *vim.lsp.buf_request_all()*
buf_request_all({bufnr}, {method}, {params}, {callback})
    Sends an async request for all active clients attached to the buffer.
    Executes the callback on the combined result. Parameters are the same as
    |vim.lsp.buf_request()| but the return result and callback are different.

    Parameters: 
        {bufnr}     (number) Buffer handle, or 0 for current.

buf_request_sync({bufnr}, {method}, {params}, {timeout_ms})
    Sends a request to all server and waits for the response of all of them.

    Calls |vim.lsp.buf_request_all()| but blocks Nvim while awaiting the
    result. Parameters are the same as |vim.lsp.buf_request()| but the return
    result is different. Wait maximum of {timeout_ms} (default 1000) ms.

    Parameters: 
        {bufnr}       (number) Buffer handle, or 0 for current.

                      milliseconds to wait for a result.

    Return: 
        Map of client_id:request_result. On timeout, cancel or error, returns
        `(nil, err)` where `err` is a string describing the failure reason.


client()                                                      *vim.lsp.client*
    LSP client object. You can get an active client object via
    |vim.lsp.get_client_by_id()| or |vim.lsp.get_active_clients()|.

    • Methods:
      • request(method, params, [handler], bufnr) Sends a request to the
        server. This is a thin wrapper around {client.rpc.request} with some
        additional checking. If {handler} is not specified, If one is not
        found there, then an error will occur. Returns: {status},
        {[client_id]}. {status} is a boolean indicating if the notification
        was successful. If it is `false`, then it will always be `false` (the
        client has shutdown). If {status} is `true`, the function returns
        {request_id} as the second result. You can use this with
        `client.cancel_request(request_id)` to cancel the request.
      • request_sync(method, params, timeout_ms, bufnr) Sends a request to the
        server and synchronously waits for the response. This is a wrapper
        around {client.request} Returns: { err=err, result=result }, a
        dictionary, where `err` and `result` come from the |lsp-handler|. On
        timeout, cancel or error, returns `(nil, err)` where `err` is a string
        describing the failure reason. If the request was unsuccessful returns
        `nil`.
      • notify(method, params) Sends a notification to an LSP server. Returns:
        a boolean to indicate if the notification was successful. If it is
        false, then it will always be false (the client has shutdown).
      • cancel_request(id) Cancels a request with a given request id. Returns:
        same as `notify()`.
      • stop([force]) Stops a client, optionally with force. By default, it
        will just ask the server to shutdown without force. If you request to
        stop a client which has previously been requested to shutdown, it will
        automatically escalate and force shutdown.
      • is_stopped() Checks whether a client is stopped. Returns: true if the
        client is fully stopped.
      • on_attach(client, bufnr) Runs the on_attach function from the client's
        config if it was defined. Useful for buffer-local setup.

    • Members
      • {id} (number): The id allocated to the client.
      • {name} (string): If a name is specified on creation, that will be
        used. Otherwise it is just the client id. This is used for logs and
        messages.
      • {rpc} (table): RPC client object, for low level interaction with the
        client. See |vim.lsp.rpc.start()|.
      • {offset_encoding} (string): The encoding used for communicating with
        the server. You can modify this in the `config`'s `on_init` method
        before text is sent to the server.
      • {handlers} (table): The handlers used by the client as described in
        |lsp-handler|.
      • {requests} (table): The current pending requests in flight to the
        server. Entries are key-value pairs with the key being the request ID
        while the value is a table with `type`, `bufnr`, and `method`
        key-value pairs. `type` is either "pending" for an active request, or
        "cancel" for a cancel request.
      • {config} (table): copy of the table that was passed by the user to
        |vim.lsp.start_client()|.
      • {server_capabilities} (table): Response from the server sent on
        `initialize` describing the server's capabilities.


client_is_stopped({client_id})                   *vim.lsp.client_is_stopped()*
    Checks whether a client is stopped.

    Parameters: 
        {client_id}  (Number)

    Return: 
        true if client is stopped, false otherwise.


                                            *vim.lsp.for_each_buffer_client()*
for_each_buffer_client({bufnr}, {fn})
    Invokes a function for each LSP client attached to a buffer.

    Parameters: 
        {bufnr}  (number) Buffer number
        {fn}     (function) Function to run on each client attached to buffer
                 {bufnr}. The function takes the client, client ID, and buffer
                 number as arguments. Example:

                   vim.lsp.for_each_buffer_client(0, function(client, client_id, bufnr)
                     print(vim.inspect(client))
                   end)
 


formatexpr({opts})                                      *vim.lsp.formatexpr()*
    Provides an interface between the built-in client and a `formatexpr`
    function.

    Currently only supports a single client. This can be set via `setlocal
    formatexpr=v:lua.vim.lsp.formatexpr()` but will typically or in
    `on_attach` via `vim.api.nvim_buf_set_option(bufnr, 'formatexpr',
    'v:lua.vim.lsp.formatexpr(#{timeout_ms:250})')`.

    Parameters: 
        {opts}  (table) options for customizing the formatting expression
                which takes the following optional keys:
                • timeout_ms (default 500ms). The timeout period for the

    Parameters: 
        {filter}  (table|nil) A table with key-value pairs used to filter the
                  returned clients. The available keys are:
                  • id (number): Only return clients with the given id
                  • bufnr (number): Only return clients attached to this

    Parameters: 
        {level}  [number|string] the case insensitive level name or number

    See also: 
        |vim.lsp.log_levels|


start({config}, {opts})                                      *vim.lsp.start()*
    Create a new LSP client and start a language server or reuses an already
    running client if one is found matching `name` and `root_dir`. Attaches
    the current buffer to the client.

    Example:


    vim.lsp.start({
       name = 'my-server-name',
       cmd = {'name-of-language-server-executable'},
       root_dir = vim.fs.dirname(vim.fs.find({'pyproject.toml', 'setup.py'}, { upward = true })[1]),
    })
 

    See |lsp.start_client| for all available options. The most important are:

    `name` is an arbitrary name for the LSP client. It should be unique per
    language server.

    `cmd` the command as list - used to start the language server. The command must
    be present in the `$PATH` environment variable or an absolute path to the executable. Shell
    constructs like `~` are NOT expanded.

    `root_dir` path to the project root. By default this is used to decide if
    an existing client should be re-used. The example above uses |vim.fs.find|
    and |vim.fs.dirname| to detect the root by traversing the file system
    upwards starting from the current directory until either a
    `pyproject.toml` or `setup.py` file is found.

    `workspace_folders` a list of { uri:string, name: string } tables. The
    project root folders used by the language server. If `nil` the property is
    derived from the `root_dir` for convenience.

    Language servers use this information to discover metadata like the
    dependencies of your project and they tend to index the contents within
    the project folder.

    To ensure a language server is only started for languages it can handle,
    make sure to call |vim.lsp.start| within a |FileType| autocmd. Either use
    |:au|, |nvim_create_autocmd()| or put the call in a
    `ftplugin/<filetype_name>.lua` (See |ftplugin-name|)

    Parameters: 
        {config}  (table) Same configuration as documented in
                  |lsp.start_client()|
        {opts}    nil|table Optional keyword arguments:
                  • reuse_client (fun(client: client, config: table): boolean)
                    Predicate used to decide if a client should be re-used.
                    Used on all running clients. The default implementation
                    re-uses a client if name and root_dir matches.

    Return: 
        (number) client_id


start_client({config})                                *vim.lsp.start_client()*
    Starts and initializes a client with the given configuration.

    Parameter `cmd` is required.

    The following parameters describe fields in the {config} table.

    Parameters: 
        {cmd}                (required, string or list treated like
                             |jobstart()|) Base command that initiates the LSP
                             client.
        {cmd_cwd}            (string, default=|getcwd()|) Directory to launch
                             the `cmd` process. Not related to `root_dir`.
        {cmd_env}            (table) Environment flags to pass to the LSP on
                             spawn. Can be specified using keys like a map or
                             as a list with `k=v` pairs or both. Non-string values are coerced to
                             string. Example:

     { "PRODUCTION=true"; "TEST=123"; PORT = 8080; HOST = "0.0.0.0"; }
 
        {detached}           (boolean, default true) Daemonize the server
                             process so that it runs in a separate process
                             group from Nvim. Nvim will shutdown the process
                             on exit, but if Nvim fails to exit cleanly this
                             could leave behind orphaned server processes.
        {workspace_folders}  (table) List of workspace folders passed to the
                             language server. For backwards compatibility
                             rootUri and rootPath will be derived from the
                             first workspace folder in this list. See
                             `workspaceFolders` in the LSP spec.
        {capabilities}       Map overriding the default capabilities defined
                             by |vim.lsp.protocol.make_client_capabilities()|,
                             passed to the language server on initialization.
                             Hint: use make_client_capabilities() and modify
                             its result.
                             • Note: To send an empty dictionary use
                               `{[vim.type_idx]=vim.types.dictionary}`, else
                               it will be encoded as an array.
        {handlers}           Map of language server method names to
                             |lsp-handler|
        {settings}           Map with language server specific settings. These
                             are returned to the language server if requested
                             via `workspace/configuration`. Keys are
                             case-sensitive.
        {commands}           (table) Table that maps string of clientside
                             commands to user-defined functions. Commands
                             passed to start_client take precedence over the
                             global command registry. Each key must be a
                             unique command name, and the value is a function
                             which is called if any LSP action (code action,
                             code lenses, ...) triggers the command.
        {init_options}       Values to pass in the initialization request as
                             `initializationOptions`. See `initialize` in the
                             LSP spec.
        {name}               (string, default=client-id) Name in log messages.
        {get_language_id}    function(bufnr, filetype) -> language ID as
                             string. Defaults to the filetype.
        {offset_encoding}    (default="utf-16") One of "utf-8", "utf-16", or
                             "utf-32" which is the encoding that the LSP
                             server expects. Client does not verify this is
                             correct.
        {on_error}           Callback with parameters (code, ...), invoked
                             when the client operation throws an error. `code`
                             is a number describing the error. Other arguments
                             may be passed depending on the error kind. See
                             |vim.lsp.rpc.client_errors| for possible errors.
                             Use `vim.lsp.rpc.client_errors[code]` to get
                             human-friendly name.
        {before_init}        Callback with parameters (initialize_params,
                             config) invoked before the LSP "initialize"
                             phase, where `params` contains the parameters
                             being sent to the server and `config` is the
                             config that was passed to
                             |vim.lsp.start_client()|. You can use this to
                             modify parameters before they are sent.
        {on_init}            Callback (client, initialize_result) invoked
                             after LSP "initialize", where `result` is a table
                             of `capabilities` and anything else the server
                             may send. For example, clangd sends
                             `initialize_result.offsetEncoding` if
                             `capabilities.offsetEncoding` was sent to it. You
                             can only modify the `client.offset_encoding` here
                             before any notifications are sent. Most language
                             servers expect to be sent client specified
                             settings after initialization. Neovim does not
                             make this assumption. A
                             `workspace/didChangeConfiguration` notification
                             should be sent to the server during on_init.
        {on_exit}            Callback (code, signal, client_id) invoked on
                             client exit.
                             • code: exit code of the process
                             • signal: number describing the signal used to
                               terminate (if any)
                             • client_id: client handle
        {on_attach}          Callback (client, bufnr) invoked when client
                             attaches to a buffer.
        {trace}              "off" | "messages" | "verbose" | nil passed
                             directly to the language server in the initialize
                             request. Invalid/empty values will default to
                             "off"
        {flags}              A table with flags for the client. The current
                             (experimental) flags are:
                             • allow_incremental_sync (bool, default true):
                               Allow using incremental sync for buffer edits
                             • debounce_text_changes (number, default 150):
                               Debounce didChange notifications to the server
                               by the given number in milliseconds. No
                               debounce occurs if nil
                             • exit_timeout (number|boolean, default false):
                               Milliseconds to wait for server to exit cleanly
                               after sending the 'shutdown' request before
                               sending kill -15. If set to false, nvim exits
                               immediately after sending the 'shutdown'
                               request to the server.
        {root_dir}           (string) Directory where the LSP server will base
                             its workspaceFolders, rootUri, and rootPath on
                             initialization.

    Return: 
        Client id. |vim.lsp.get_client_by_id()| Note: client may not be fully
        initialized. Use `on_init` to do any actions once the client has been
        initialized.


stop_client({client_id}, {force})                      *vim.lsp.stop_client()*
    Stops a client(s).

    You can also use the `stop()` function on a |vim.lsp.client| object. To
    stop all clients:


    vim.lsp.stop_client(vim.lsp.get_active_clients())
 

    By default asks the server to shutdown, unless stop was requested already
    for this client, then force-shutdown is attempted.

    Parameters: 
        {client_id}  client id or |vim.lsp.client| object, or list thereof
        {force}      (boolean) (optional) shutdown forcefully


tagfunc({...})                                             *vim.lsp.tagfunc()*
    Provides an interface between the built-in client and 'tagfunc'.

    When used with normal mode commands (e.g. |CTRL-]|) this will invoke the
    "textDocument/definition" LSP method to find the tag under the cursor.
    Otherwise, uses "workspace/symbol". If no results are returned from any
    LSP servers, falls back to using built-in tags.

    Parameters: 
        {pattern}  Pattern used to find a workspace symbol
        {flags}    See |tag-function|

    Return: 
        A list of matching tags


with({handler}, {override_config})                            *vim.lsp.with()*
    Function to manage overriding defaults for LSP handlers.

    Parameters:

    Formats a buffer using the attached (and optionally filtered) language
    server clients.

    Parameters: 
        {options}  table|nil Optional table which holds the following optional
                   fields:
                   • formatting_options (table|nil): Can be used to specify
                     FormattingOptions. Some unspecified options will be
                     automatically derived from the current Neovim options.
                     See https://microsoft.github.io/language-server-protocol/specifications/lsp/3.17/specification/#formattingOptions
                   • timeout_ms (integer|nil, default 1000): Time in
                     milliseconds to block for formatting requests. No effect
                     if async=true
                   • bufnr (number|nil): Restrict formatting to the clients
                     attached to the given buffer, defaults to the current
                     buffer (0).
                   • filter (function|nil): Predicate used to filter clients.
                     Receives a client as argument and must return a boolean.
                     Clients matching the predicate are included. Example:               •

            vim.lsp.buf.format {
              filter = function(client) return client.name ~= "tsserver" end
            }
 
                   • async boolean|nil If true the method won't block.
                     Defaults to false. Editing the buffer while formatting
                     asynchronous can lead to unexpected changes.
                   • id (number|nil): Restrict formatting to the client with
                     ID (client.id) matching this field.
                   • name (string|nil): Restrict formatting to the client with

formatting({options})                               *vim.lsp.buf.formatting()*
    Formats the current buffer.

    Parameters: 
        {options}  (table|nil) Can be used to specify FormattingOptions. Some
                   unspecified options will be automatically derived from the
                   current Neovim options.

formatting_seq_sync({options}, {timeout_ms}, {order})
    Formats the current buffer by sequentially requesting formatting from
    attached clients.

    Useful when multiple clients with formatting capability are attached.

    Since it's synchronous, can be used for running on save, to make sure
    buffer is formatted prior to being saved. {timeout_ms} is passed on to the
    |vim.lsp.client| `request_sync` method. Example:

     vim.api.nvim_command[[autocmd BufWritePre <buffer> lua vim.lsp.buf.formatting_seq_sync()]]
 

    Parameters: 
        {options}     (table|nil) `FormattingOptions` entries
        {timeout_ms}  (number|nil) Request timeout
        {order}       (table|nil) List of client names. Formatting is
                      requested from clients in the following order: first all
                      clients that are not in the `order` list, then the
                      remaining clients in the order as they occur in the
                      `order` list.


                                               *vim.lsp.buf.formatting_sync()*
formatting_sync({options}, {timeout_ms})
    Performs |vim.lsp.buf.formatting()| synchronously.

    Useful for running on save, to make sure buffer is formatted prior to
    being saved. {timeout_ms} is passed on to |vim.lsp.buf_request_sync()|.
    Example:


    autocmd BufWritePre <buffer> lua vim.lsp.buf.formatting_sync()
 

    Parameters: 
        {options}     (table|nil) with valid `FormattingOptions` entries
        {timeout_ms}  (number) Request timeout
