Hi

I'm looking for some advice on using eglot in a remote TRAMP editing
session. I have a couple of scenarios where I'd need to access a VM and
edit Python code residing inside. Having a Python LSP that can help me in
this use case would be really great.

Since there is nothing in the eglot manual about this scenario, I'm asking
for enlightenment here

Thanks a ton, /PA

As long as the language server is installed on the remote, it should
Just Work™.

You may need to add ‘'tramp-own-remote-path’ to ‘tramp-remote-path’,
depending on where the LSP is installed, however.

It is on my TODO to check how well Tramp is integrated with eglot. Great
to hear that it seems to work flawless, but I believe there might be
some hints for performance improvement, like setting
"direct-async-process" connection property.

When time permits I'll go through this, and I might contribute some few
words to the eglot manual.

Best regards, Michael.

I wouldn't go so far as to say "flawlessly". It does often run into the
"forbidden re-entrant call to Tramp" problem, but that's not unique to
Eglot, and it doesn't seem to cause any problems other than an annoying
message periodically in the echo area.

Otherwise it works pretty well. I've been using it like this for years,
and am pretty happy with it.

Yes, this is an open problem. I hoped to fix it by using threads in
Tramp, but this has other problems.

Great! Since you are a regular eglot+Tramp user, could I ask you for a
test?

I assume you are using Tramp with ssh or scp. If you also don't use a
password (for example via public key authentication), please try the
following setting:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(add-to-list 'tramp-connection-properties
             (list (regexp-quote "/ssh:user@host:")
                   "direct-async-process" t))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

"/ssh:user@host:" must be adapted of course, and you must set this prior
opening a connection to this remote path. This should give you better
performance when starting the language server.

Does it work for you? Does it make a difference?

Best regards, Michael.

I use eglot+Tramp with various containers (nspawn, docker, podman),
which don't support the ‘tramp-direct-async’ flag, so I'm not sure how
helpful this testing would be.

I know we've spoken about that flag before, and I came away from those
discussions with the impression that those methods should not support
direct-async, but I'm unsure why. I have only skimmed the relevant code,
but it seems like there shouldn't be a problem with supporting
direct-async on the container methods. Is there some danger I should be
aware of?

If it's safe enough, I'd be happy to flag support for direct-async in
the methods and do the above test.

WDYT?

Good point. I haven't checked docker, podman and friends yet whether
they do suuport direct async processes. Short check: they don't yet. I
will work on adding this feature in Tramp.

I'll come back to you when Tramp is prepared.

I gave it a shot. Appended is a patch, which improves
tramp-handle-make-process in tramp.el. The method specifications in
tramp-container.el are extended by the line

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
		(tramp-direct-async (,tramp-default-remote-shell "-c"))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Locally, I have tested it with the methods "docker" and "kubernetes", it
seems to work. I couldn't test with "podman", because I haven't such a
system just now.

For "nspawn" I cannot say anything, I don't use it. Perhaps it is
sufficient to add a similar line in its tramp-methods specification,
don't know. You as author might know it better. And if it works
sufficiently, we might also think about integrating it into
tramp-container.el. But this would be another story.

I've applied your patch, and will get back to you after I've used it for
a few days. So far, so good, though. Is there any behavior I should be
paying special attention to?

If nspawn-style containers are desirable in mainline Tramp, I can put
together a patch for you when I get some cycles.

Hmm, does it show better performance when accessing an lsp server?

Otherwise, special restrictions for Tramp's direct async processes are
domented at (info "(tramp)Improving performance of asynchronous remote processes").

Yes, it would be welcome in tramp-container.el. Even if it doesn't
support direct-async (yet).

I haven't noticed any particular difference in speed. But I didn't find
eglot in a container to be noticeably slow before, either. My computer
is a beast, and container execution is basically native anyway.

Likely yes. But there won't be a feature or Lisp object to check for the
given solution in Tramp. You can only check the Tramp version.

Actually, I agree.  I personally use the latest Emacs 28 to avoid these
kinds of package.el woes (and to keep developing on the packages
themselves).

You're at least a "data point" in my decision. I want that users at least
have the option of running Eglot remotely over Tramp on Emacs 27.1.
There are options for that.

1. The package-requires way.  Seems to be "the future";
2. You bring that bugfix to Emacs 27;
3. I dont' do anything, wait for bug reports and tell people to install a newer
Tramp;
4. I put in an automated check in eglot.el that does the same as 3.

I don't expect any adverse impact. It's just the "principle of least
surprise". Personally, I dislike software which installs something else
w/o any need.

But you're right, likely nobody will complain in practice. So pls ignore
my mumbling :-)

But it's the same with Flymake, or Project or Xref or any other feature
that Eglot uses. Thought those features are slightly more essential
to Eglot's central promise (though not completely).

But actually, we do.  I mean, Eglot could check Tramp's version at
run-time and give exactly that warning you suggest.  But my
question is: what benefit would that produce?

I practice, what kind of remotely adverse impact do you
expect from installing 2.4.4?  Is it a very large download? Does
the compilation take very long? Something else?

That's exactly my point. We have no mean to say in eglot.el "if you use
Tramp, please ensure that you have at least Tramp 2.4.4. Otherwise,
autoinstall it from GNU ELPA."

Of course, we do take something similar in consideration regarding
the _loading_ of X.  For that, we have just-in-time "autoloads".  But
we don't have just-in-time "autoinstalls" yet.

Yes, but in that vein of thinking then Tramp shouldn't be bundled
with Emacs too. There are lots of things we can do with Emacs
that don't require Tramp.  But some of them do, and so we bundle
Tramp.

And the same thing if we substitute Tramp for any feature X.

The point is that this Tramp upgrade is not mandatory. Only if a user
wants to apply Eglot remotely. I'm the last one who would say a Tramp
upgrade is bad :-) But a Tramp upgrade w/o a reason?

Well, this user did ask for Eglot.  He will also get an updated
xref.el, project.el eldoc.el, flymake.el as already happens.  I'm
afraid this is just how inter-package dependencies work.

As long as Tramp 2.4.4 is (mostly) backward compatible to 2.3.5's uses...
there should be no (little) problem.

No annoyance. But a user of Emacs 26.3 has Tramp 2.3.5 built-in. Because
of Eglot, Tramp 2.4.4 would be installed for her from GNU ELPA, w/o

What Hmm? :-) Emacs users who are not "interested in Tramp" still get

Yes. You could add (tramp "2.4.4") to your Package-Requires: header,
this will be the next version in GNU ELPA. However, this would mean a
dependency for all Eglot users, even if they are not interested in
Tramp. Hmm.

That's great.  It means that as long as Eglot, which is also a GNU ELPA
package, depends on that particular version of Tramp, users who install
it from that source (using package.el) will benefit from the fix. Can you
confirm?

Definitely not in Emacs 27.1. This is in pretest, and I don't want to
err out this release.

There are already *many* Tramp fixes which are on hold for Emacs 27. I
collect them in the Tramp 2.4 branch of the Tramp repository, and I will
merge all of them to the emacs-27 branch once Emacs 27.1 has been
released.

But don't worry: the Tramp 2.4 release is kept up-to-date in GNU
ELPA. Once you can confirm that the change works for you, I'll backport it.

Please tell me so. The next Tramp 2.4 release in ELPA is roughly

Thanks you very much Michael for the fix to Tramp, Michael.

I'm the discussion switching to emacs-devel.

I've yet to test it out, but do you think it's possible to make
this fix available in Emacs 27, given that the bug was found
there?  I'm afraid we won't be able to advertise Tramp support
in Eglot soon unless you do this.

This is of course assuming that this fix does fix Eglot's attempts
to use Tramp (which I or someone else still has to confirm).

Thanks,
João
