debuggers in IDE (IntelliJ)
November 20
I am new D, I love it, I want to promote it to big software projects.

I cannot figure out how to get debuggers to work with IntelliJ/Clion, Atom, VisualStudio.
I can get the code to compile and execute.

LLDB works well as a debugger, is there a way to make it work with IntelliJ?

In my opinion, IDE support is what is holding back D from replacing C++.

IntelliJ (and I think that is also true for Visual Studio Code) can
use any debugger which speaks Gdb MI. That is of course true for GDB,
but also e.g. the visual studio debug enngine Mago has a Gdb MI wrapper.

If LLDB also has a Gdb MI interface or someone created a wrapper
it can be used too.

Kind regards

Hi,

I have created a modification of one known wrapper (freedib/lldbmi2) to make it work with the D plugin of Intellij.

This makes it somehow possible to debug D in OS-X.

Basic things have only been tested so far.
