Context: I want to open throw-away files, usually I create them under
/tmp but can be any other directory. I want to have
eslint (maybe others later) LSP servers attached to that buffer.
Current behaviour: LSP doesn’t start if I open a file under a folder that doesn’t have any matching root pattern (
Even forcing a start once the file is opened with
:LspStart tsserver doesn’t work.
Desired behaviour: I’d like to have
tsserver attached based on filetype.
What have I tried:
mkdir /tmp/test && nvim /tmp/test/thingy.js→ NO Language Server bound
- with that file opened tried
:LspStart→ NO Language Server bound
touch /tmp/test/package.json & nvim /tmp/test/thingy.js→
→ NO Language Server bound
- tried with a different command, but same approach:
But still NO Language Server bound
So I read the suggested
:h lspconfig-root-detection help, which lead me to
:h lspconfig-all help, but that’s a dead end, because I cannot access the
tsserver help, it seems it’s not properly linked or maybe there’s nothing to link.
I want to have the proper language server bound to my buffer, regardless if it doesn’t belong to any project. What should I change in order to achieve that?
Feel free to check my Neovim configuration if it helps to answer this. I haven’t committed the after ftplugin yet.
