Kedro Language Server

Project description


A Language Server for the latest version(s) of Kedro. It provides features to enable IDE support for Kedro. For example, you can jump to dataset and parameter definition when constructing the pipeline.

Note: This is pre-alpha software.


  • Provide dataset and parameter definition when constructing the pipeline.

Note: I need your help! If you think this project is a good idea, please submit features request via Github Issue.


Kedro Language Server aims to be compatible with Kedro 0.17.x and above. Currently it is restricted to 0.17.3 and above during pre-alpha phase.


pip install kedro-lsp



usage: kedro-lsp [-h] [--version] [--tcp] [--host HOST] [--port PORT] [--log-file LOG_FILE] [-v]

Kedro Language Server: an LSP wrapper for Kedro.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help           show this help message and exit
  --version            display version information and exit
  --tcp                use TCP server instead of stdio
  --host HOST          host for TCP server (default
  --port PORT          port for TCP server (default 2087)
  --log-file LOG_FILE  redirect logs to the given file instead of writing to stderr
  -v, --verbose        increase verbosity of log output

    Run from stdio: kedro-lsp

Visual Studio Code

To use it with visual studio code, install the Kedro extension from Visual Studio Code Marketplace.




To use it with nvim, install lspconfig.

:Plug 'neovim/nvim-lspconfig'

Then add the following config to your vimrc.

lua <<EOF
local configs = require 'lspconfig/configs'

configs.kedro = {
    default_config = {
        cmd = {"kedro-lsp"};
        filetypes = {"python"};
        root_dir = function(fname)
            return vim.fn.getcwd()

🗒️ Note, you must have the kedro-lsp installed and on your PATH

There are a number of plugins that will help setup lsp functionality in nvim, but if you want a bare minimum go-to-definition add this to your .vimrc as well.

nnoremap <leader>n <cmd>lua vim.lsp.buf.definition()<CR>

If you are having any issues with kedro-lsp not working in nvim try running :LspInfo or looking into your ~/.cache/nvim/lsp.log file.


  • Provide diagnostic when there is a typo in dataset or parameter name in the pipeline.
  • Be Kedro environment-aware
