internal/lsp: improvements for command messages

When falling back to messages for progress reporting, don't try to
implement cancellation via ShowMessageCommand dialogs. They are an
imperfect solution, as the dialog stays open even after the command
completed. Also, among the LSP clients that don't support workDone
reporting, I suspect many also don't support ShowMessageCommand (for
example, govim), so the audience for this feature is probably quite

Just remove it, and instead show a (non-cancellable) message. If clients
want cancellation, workDone progress support is the way to provide it.

Also remove a redundant message on go-generate success, and attach logs
when tests fail. Without logs on failure, I find that the test command
is not very useful. I tested a bit with very verbose test output, and
both VS Code and coc.nvim handled it gracefully.

Finally, fix a bug causing benchmarks not to be run.

Go Tools

This subrepository holds the source for various packages and tools that support the Go programming language.

Some of the tools, godoc and vet for example, are included in binary Go distributions.

Others, including the Go guru and the test coverage tool, can be fetched with go get.

Packages include a type-checker for Go and an implementation of the Static Single Assignment form (SSA) representation for Go programs.


The easiest way to install is to run go get -u You can also manually git clone the repository to $GOPATH/src/
