Boost your productivity with the Erlang Language Server

TALK LEVEL: BEGINNER / INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED

Implementing features such as auto-complete or go-to-definition for a programming language is not trivial. Traditionally, this work had to be repeated for each development tool and it required a mix of expertise in both the targeted programming language and the programming language internally used by the development tool of choice.

A brilliant intuition, the "Language Server Protocol" (LSP), changes the rules of the game. A real blessing for the Erlang community.
