When I went to to see if the latest major release was ready (it is, I'm late, as usual), I discovered something called "Language Server Protocol". Eclipse Oxygen supports it. Several other editiors/IDEs supposedly already support it.

The idea is that instead of each editor/IDE needing a plug-in for each additional language some one wants to support, each editor/IDE gets a LSP client plug-in and each language gets a LSP server.

I did some searching, but didn't find project creating a LSP server for Perl. Still, I think it would be a way to help get better support for Perl into the editors and IDEs that people want to use.

So, sisters and brothers, what do you think? would you be willing to contribute (and how)?

Thank you for your thoughts.
