Stripe is open-sourcing the Sorbet (Ruby) VS Code Extension

Stripe is open-sourcing the Sorbet (Ruby) VS Code Extension

We’re excited to announce that Stripe’s VS Code extension for Sorbet is now
open source.
We’ve designed Sorbet to be used in editors from Day 1—For the past two years,
Sorbet has exposed a flag (--lsp) that starts Sorbet in
Language Server Protocol
(LSP) mode. In this mode, Sorbet can respond to many LSP requests, like Go To
Definition, Find All References, Autocomplete, and more.

With this release, we’re making it even easier to take advantage of these LSP
features when working with Sorbet in VS Code. We hope that this extension takes
some of the guess work out of how to configure and use Sorbet’s LSP mode.

Today’s release includes:


The best way to experience the Sorbet extension for VS Code is to try it out
yourself. To entice you to try it out for yourself, here are some screen

When there are errors in a file, Sorbet will underline them in red. It also
shows a list of all errors in VS Code’s “Problems” window.

Sorbet errors are shown with red squiggles in the editor. Hover to see the full message.

Sorbet responds with autocompletion results while typing, including a list of
possible methods and the documentation for that item, including its signature.

Autocompletion works for constants, methods, and variables

Sorbet can find all references of a constant, method, or variable throughout an
entire codebase:

… and having found all those references, it can even rename them automatically:
