CDT has pretty cool code analysis engine, maybe even cooler than Visual Studio one's. It would be very useful to have an ability to use this engine not only in Eclipse, but in other editors too (my personal favorite is VS Code). Is it a difficult task to make CDT more independent from Eclipse API and create separate language server?
Unfortunately we're starting running out of steam trying to keep up with the new C++ standards and are looking for alternatives that we can also use with VS Code. I'm currently looking at cquery. There's also clangd that's actually part of the clang source tree.
I do worry though that those options will take a while to catch up with CDT. But if we help them out, maybe they can get there. It's all open source.
