DidChangeWatchedFiles Notification


  • It is recommended that servers register for these file events using the registration mechanism. In former implementations clients pushed file events without the server actively asking for it.

  • Servers are allowed to run their own file watching mechanism and not rely on clients to provide file events. However this is not recommended due to the following reasons:

    • a client usually starts more than one server. If every server runs its own file watching it can become a CPU or memory problem.
    • in general there are more server than client implementations. So this problem is better solved on the client side.

for , give us a feature request and i'll add it to the roadmap :) can you give us a feature request?
