Enable LSP logging: In LSP Settings enable the log_debug setting and log_payloads if needed.

Common problems

1. LSP doesn't start my language server

  • Make sure you have a folder added in your Sublime workspace.
  • Make sure the document you are opening lives under that folder.

Your client configuration requires two settings to match the document your are editing:

  • Scope (eg. source.php): Verify this is correct by running "Show Scope Name" from the developer menu.
  • Syntax (eg. Packages\PHP\PHP.sublime-syntax): Verify by running view.settings().get("syntax") in the console.

2. LSP cannot find my language server

Often caused by Sublime Text's internal environment not picking up the same PATH as you've configured in your shell.

This issue can be solved in a few ways:

  • Always launch sublime from the command line (so it inherits your shell's environment)
  • On OS-X: Install the SublimeFixMacPath package
  • On OS-X: Use launchctl setenv to set PATH for OS-X UI applications.

Known Issues

Completions not shown after certain keywords

Sublime Text's built-in Completion Rules.tmPreferences for some languages surpress completions after certain keywords. Python's import keyword is an example - no completions are shown at import a| (See this LSP issue). The solution is to put an edited version of the Completion Rules.tmPreferences in the Packages folder (you may need to clear the copy in the Cache folder afterwards).
