There is the official option which you can by from Kuka. It is called Kuka Office. I am not sure about variable suggestions, but this can be used for debugging.

There is also orange edit (currently in free beta) which many Kuka programmers use. This does have variable suggestions and also suggestions for methods/variables available in the Kuka language.

Another soluton is to use notepad++ withe the KRL language plugins. This will give you variable suggestions (only your variables) and syntax highlighting and formatting.

  • $\begingroup$ Indeed, it does not get much better than OfficeLite and a decent text editor for ordinary Kuka robots. Here is syntax highlighting and autoindentation for emacs as well: github.com/tommyolofsson/krl-mode $\endgroup$ – tommyo Oct 25 '16 at 19:12
