Worksheet evaluations

Thanks to the great work by ckipp01 users will now be able to export their evaluated worksheets using a new command, copy-worksheet-output, or Metals: Copy worksheet output in Visual Studio Code.


When using this command existing statements will be copied to your clipboard along with their evaluations included as comments below them. This will allow users to freely share their results with others.


  • Add in Scala Sources to standalone worksheets.
  • Fix auto-connect BSP server without explicit choice.
  • Make sure to not duplicate semanticdbOptions when using sbt BSP.
  • Ensure semanticdb is enabled with sbt BSP and Scala 3
