yes! Pascal *badly* needs this to be productive outside of Lazarus. I use Sublime Text and frequently now VSCode but not having good code tools is getting painful.

In fact I already started a language server some months ago (and since been busy with out stuff) but I think you've made more progress than me so I'll help to develop yours if you would like. I was even asking on the list about Lazarus code tools and was showed how to FPC's official parser works.

Please let me know what else needs to be done and I'll see if I can contribute.

Thanks, really.
