Lately I’ve been dabbing a bit into IntelliJ IDEs and I think it would be nice to improve Julia support. The IDEs are actually very snappy (make me believe Java IDEs are less resource intense than Electron ones these days) and benefit from a large ecosystem of high quality plugins.
State of affairs:
- there is a Julia plugin that seems to have been abandoned but still seems to work (REPL. code eval, etc). Maybe this can be revived (it’s GPL: https://github.com/JuliaEditorSupport/julia-intellij).
- there a Tabnine plugin which supports Julia AI driven auto-complete and is decent.
- there is a plugin adding LSP support to IntelliJ (https://github.com/gtache/intellij-lsp) and I fumbled a bit with https://github.com/julia-vscode/LanguageServer.jl as I hoped setting the two parts up will be a formality. It wasn’t.
- there also seems to be some debugger support: Julia Debugger Document | zxj5470
I was wondering if this is interesting for our community and if people more familiar with the various items above want to chime in?
