The Language Server Protocol

The Language Server Protocol is an open source effort go generalize a code-completion and linting as a JSON-based client-server protocol, originally developed for MS Visual Studio Code (which is a Nodejs crap)

The standalone language servers, however, could be used very successfully with classic and sane Vim and Emacs.

Since this is a cross-community effort, due to the law of big numbers, these servers (and, hopefully, corresponding clients form Vim and Emacs) would eventually win (and become a usual Java/JS crapware with hundreds of low-quality dependencies).

For now there are servers for Java, Dotty, Go, Clang, etc.

Use these. It makes developments less pain and does not require to load a few gigabytes of fucking crap like Eclipse, IntelliJ or VSCode.
