Huge thanks to
@dragos for his work on a Scala implementation of the LSP (see: https://github.com/dragos/dragos-vscode-scala). This project helped us get quickly started with LSP. Since then, we have refactored the project's original sources to the point where only a few simple case classes remain.
- IntelliJ IDEA: the most widely used IDE for Scala using a re-implementation of the Scala typechecker.
- ENSIME: brings Scala and Java IDE-like features to editors like Emacs and Sublime Text using the Scala Presentation Compiler.
- Scala IDE: Eclipse-based IDE using the Scala Presentation Compiler.
Metals = Meta (from Scalameta) + LS (from Language Server)
