Implementing codeintel for additional language


I want to update my add-on R Language Interface to use the new codeintel, but I can’t seem to find the documentation.
Currently it is implemented as a LangIntel object in Python. The completions are retrieved dynamically from the R environment each time they are requested, so document scanning won’t work for me. Basically, I’m looking for a method to define implicit/explicit trigger points in the document, and populate the completion menu.

Here’s an example addon that adds an LSP server for Node, Typescript and JS:
