Describe your feature request
In Visual Studio Code (and pretty much any other IDE I’ve used, and I’ve used a lot) there is a way to start a comment and have the IDE finish it up. So, for instance, if I were to write /** and press enter, then I would see */ appear, and each time I’d press enter a new * would appear, with */ appearing at the very end. That doesn’t happen in a Java replit.
By the same token, in other IDEs I can write a comment adjacent to a method, and it figures out, based on the return type and parameter list, the skeleton of a JavaDoc comment.
What problem(s) would this feature solve?
The pain of having to set up comments. My students are already reluctant to write comments, and these extra steps do not help.
Explain what you were trying to do when you came across the problem leading to this feature request
Trying to write a comment.
