Hi Neil,

I’m going to quote you the readme from the linked github repo:

Allow the unwashed masses to use Org, without using Emacs, using Emacs.

Here’s the image from the readme model.png

And here’s the first line from the first result of a google search for &ldquoLSP”:

The Language Server Protocol (LSP) defines the protocol used between an editor or IDE and a language server that provides language features like auto complete, go to definition, find all references etc.

That should give you an idea of the intent here.

All the best,

Could you describe a use case?  Apologies if I missed this in earlier threads.

A little progress update.

https://github.com/tecosaur/org-lsp now exists.

I have no idea what I'm doing, so if anyone has feedback on the current
idea, that would be much appreciated.
