Sorry if this email is off topic.
Today I’ve got this sticky idea, to do a semantic highlighting of C++ source in Vim using YouCompleteMe’s infrastructure.
For the start I would like to be able get class, namespace, enum… names and highlight them.
So I dug in, and didn’t find anything similar in the libclang C API (the one used by YCM).
I’m not sure how to do it right with the C++ API: to traverse the whole AST or there is a better/cheaper way to do it? (for example judging by its name ASTContext::getTypes() is doing something similar)
So if anyone is interested in the topic and is willing to help me by giving initial direction or guiding me, and if I will be allowed to add such functionality into the libclang C API I will be glad to work on this.
