Previously, we had no tracking enabled on the website. I'd like to
experiment with adding Chinese/Japanese/Spanish translations to the
Metals website to help beginners get started with writing Scala in their
favorite editor.

Installing an IDE is usually the first thing people do when learning a
new programming language. Many Metals users might be taking their first
steps in programming and might not be fluent in English so I think it
might be helpful to make the Metals installation instructions available
in more langauges.

Adding translations for multiple languages will require a lot of effort.
I'm hoping the analytics will help us measure how impactful this work
will be.

Huge thanks to @dragos for his work on a Scala implementation of the LSP (see: 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.

Why Metals?

Metals = Meta (from Scalameta) + LS (from Language Server)

You can’t perform that action at this time.
