Support for Scala programming language

Hi all!
Thanks to an amazing work of a bunch of individuals in the Scala community, https://www.scala-lang.org/ has now a language server (https://scalameta.org/metals/), VS Code has a plugin for Metals (https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=scalameta.metals).

Could Theia support Scala? :slight_smile:

Definitely! We are transitioning from using the LSP to directly running full VS Code extensions. Not sure someone has tried the scalameta.metals extension already.

Great news, thanks! Transition to full VS Code extensions \o/

You can give it a try: https://github.com/theia-ide/theia/wiki/Testing-VS-Code-extensions
