digitalmars.D.ide - Atom and D language server

I've seen that D has good support for Microsoft VS Code. There is 
a plugin for serve-d that implements all of workspace-d.

It is to be noted that recently, Atom (since 1.21) has adopted 
the language server technology and published a few IDEs based on 
LSP integration. (See 
http://blog.atom.io/2017/10/03/atom-1-21.html) However, with 
Atom, there is no language server package for D at the moment. 
Does WebFreak001 or any of our awesome fellow community member 
consider porting serve-d to Atom?

I'm not planning on porting it, but for all basic functionality it shouldn't be any more than a few lines of spawning serve-d with the API they provide, everyone should be able to do that. Either as fork of atomize-d so we can PR it or we could move it to Pure-D later so it's there with the other IDEs/Editor Plugins. See https://github.com/atom/ide-json/blob/master/src/main.js and https://github.com/atom/ide-go/blob/master/lib/main.js Spawn serve-d with the arguments `["--require", "D"]`
