How can I activate Code-Completion, and other Language Server features in Force.com IDE 2? It's not working for me.
I'm fairly new to Salesforce development in general, and don't have broad awareness of toolsets. Currently, I'm getting started with Salesforce DX.
I'm not positive, but my interpretation of docs is that the Apex Language Server is available in beta for Salesforce DX, and I should be able to get code-completion and other features in the Force.com IDE 2.
The docs say "The Apex Language Server isn’t generally available unless or until Salesforce announces its general availability in documentation or in press releases or public statements." However, the same docs also say "Salesforce DX isn’t generally available unless or until Salesforce announces its general availability in documentation or in press releases or public statements", in reference to the entire toolset which I'm currently using. That in conjunction with the fact that I see others are using it with VS Code makes me think it's online, and I'm just doing something wrong.
The docs also say "These features are available in any Salesforce DX project that includes a valid
sfdx-project.json file that you import into the IDE." I thought perhaps that meant there was something configured in that file, so I downloaded the sample projects; but there's nothing different from mine in there.
I verified my local OS allows network access to
forceide, per docs.
I have no language servers currently visibly configured in the "Window : Preferences : Language Servers" list. When I select "Add..." in that configuration screen, I see items like "Apex" in content-types on the left, and "Force.com" in Language Server Launch Configuration on the right. They can't be activated though.
