Dart Language Server

Wraps the dart analysis server and adapts it to the language server protocol.

This is a very early and very experimental project to test the feasibility of integrating the dart analysis server with an editor following a different api than it's default.

Dart Language Server

The executable dart_language_server implements a partial adapter of the analysis server following the language server protocol.


Support is working or planned for:

  • Initialize/Configuration calls (initialize, capabilities, etc)
  • x File tracking (open, change)
  • x Diagnostic notifications
  • x Completion suggestions
  • Jump to definition

Support for further language server features is not planned.


pub global activate dart_language_server

If you have the pub bin directory in your path (you should be warned during the previous command if not) the server can be run as dart_language_server.

A note on compatibility

Development is done based on the protocol spec but not against a reference editor plugin - there are likely to be protocol bugs.
