SymbolServer is a helper package for LanguageServer.jl that provides information about internal and exported variables of packages (without loading them). A package's symbol information is initially loaded in an external process but then stored on disc for (quick loading) future use.
Installation and Usage
using Pkg Pkg.add("SymbolServer")
Documentation for working with Julia environments is available here.
Creates a new symbol server instance that works on a given Julia depot. This symbol server instance can be long lived, i.e. one can re-use it for different environments etc. If
path_to_store is specified, cache files will be stored there, otherwise a standard location will be used.
Loads the symbols for the environment in
environment_path. Returns a tuple, where the first element is a return status and the second element a payload. The status can be
:success (in which case the second element is the new store),
:canceled if another call to
getstore was initiated before a previous one finished (with

:failure with the payload being the content of the error stream of the client process.
