A TypeScript plugin that replaces getEncodedSemanticClassifications and getEncodedSyntacticClassifications to provide more classifications to be used by the new Semantic Highlighting APIs in VS Code.

The purpose of this plugin is to test and enable the new VS Code semantic highlight capabilities.

Once proven, the extended classifications will (hopefully) be adapted by the TypeScript language server and the plugin is no longer needed any more.

New Classifications

The plugin uses new token classifications, consisting of a TokenType and with any number of TokenModifiers.

export const enum TokenType {
	class, enum, interface, namespace, typeParameter, type, parameter, variable, enumMember, property, function, member
}

export const enum TokenModifier {
	declaration, static, async, readonly, local, defaultLibrary
}

Classification Encoding

The new classifications are retured in place of old the classifications. They are encoded as follows:

TSClassification = ((TokenType + 1) << 8) + TokenModifierSet;

All new classifications have a value >= 0x100 to not overlap with the old classifications. Old classifications are no longer emmitted once the plugin is active.

Implemented Features

Examples for each feature can be seen in the test cases. To try them out in VSCode, copy the added snippet to a TypeScript editor and use the Developer: Inspect Editor Tokens and Scopes command to see the semantic token information ar the current cursor location.

  • all token types listed above
    • classification for all declarations and references
    • modifier declaration when on the identifier of the declaration node
        class A { field: number; member(param: number) { let var= param + this.field; } }
    • modifier defaultLibrary when in an symbol that comes from the default libraries.
        Math.max(Number.Nan, parseInt('33'))
  • variables, properties and parameters
    • modifier readonly when defined as const or readonly
        const var;
    • modifier local when not declared top-level
         function global(p: number) { const global; 
  • functions and members
    • modifier async when defined as async
    • modifier static when defined as static -variables & properties with constructor signatures
    • variables & properties that have a constructor type, are classified as class
         Number.isInteger(1);
  • variables & properties with call signatures
    • variables, properties and parameters that have a function type (but no properties) are classified as function resp member (#89337)
         const callback = () => {};
    • if the variable/member/parameter type is callable but also has properties, it stays a variable/member/parameter, unless used in a callExpression
         var fs = require('fs); require.resolve('foo/bar');
  • jsx
    • no semantic highlighting for JSX element names (for now): #88911 #89224.

Under discussion

  • add typeAlias pas a new token type
  • object literal keys are currently also classified as properties

Try it out

In VS Code

  • make sure semantic highlighting is enabled (on by default in insiders and since 1.43 in stable) "editor.semanticHighlighting.enabled": true
  • open a TypeScript or JavaScript file in VSCode and wait for the language server to get active
  • use the Developer: Inspect Editor Tokens and Scopes command to inspect the semantic information at a given cursor location.

Inspect Editor Tokens

Run the Tests

  • yarn && yarn test in the folder of the cloned repo.
