07 December 2015 Playing with Dart's analysis server

Dart SDK ships with an analysis server. Very handy if you'd like to write a completion plugin for your favorite editor. The API is well documented. Of interest, there's LocalDartServer.java, part of dartedit.

$ dart path/to/bin/snapshots/analysis_server.dart.snapshot  --sdk=path/to/dart-sdk

NOTE: The server reads requests from standard input. Either escape or execute the following as one-liner json requests.

{
  "id": "1\n",
  "method": "analysis.setAnalysisRoots\n",
  "params": {
    "included": [
      "path/to/your/dart/project"
    ],
    "excluded": []
  }
}
{
  "id": "3\n",
  "method": "completion.getSuggestions\n",
  "params": {
    "file": "path/to/some/file.dart\n",
    "offset": 673
  }
}
