Kotlin debugger for text editors?


#1

Kotlin is a relatively new language, so there’s not much support for it. As well as that, because it’s made by people from JetBrains, it’s mainly more “tuned” for IDEs, I feel, as opposed to text editors.

I mainly use Visual Studio Code right now, but the support for Kotlin just isn’t there - only a simple highlighter is available, and it’s worse compared to other languages (e.g. Dart).

Are there any projects underway for making a Kotlin “plugin” for text editors (which includes a debugger, a highlighter, and possibly more elements)? I love JetBrains’ IDEs, but they take ages to set up, and are frankly a pain to get started, as opposed to making Kotlin projects using a text editor IMO.
