A programming language is only as good at its tooling. Traditionally, tooling has always been an after-thought of language design since developing good tools take significant development efforts. Dotty is an experimental compiler for what will one day be called Scala 3, and Scala already has established and functional tooling. For Dotty to be seen as a viable alternative to Scala 2, it needs to deliver a developer experience at least as good. In particular, good support for Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) is crucial. In this paper we report our progress on providing IDE support for Dotty.
