Setting up kak-lsp for typescript and tsx

I’ve been having issues making kak-lsp work with tsx files… by default .ts files work perfectly… but once you add JSX, all hell breaks loose.

After digging around, finally found this github issue


filetypes = ["typescript"]
roots = ["package.json", "tsconfig.json"]
command = "typescript-language-server"
args = ["--stdio"]

to your kak-lsp.toml makes it work with .tsx files!

I assume you removed the [language.typescript] entry, like at the bottom of this comment on the kak-lsp issue

I don’t know much about typescript but I reckon that there is no downside to making tsx the default (at least with this specific language server)? So let’s make that the default to save future users the trouble?

yes I recently did! Found out there’s some issues when they’re both defined. I’ll edit the post.

– whoops, couldn’t edit it anymore :grimacing:
