So can Koneki LDT and ZeroBrane Studio.  And both of them can also run on non-Windows operating systems, unlike Decoda, which might be a big deal for some folks.  I think both LuaEdit and DforD LuaCoding can do remote debugging too, but they're only for Windows.

In ZBT's case, it looks like the program being debugged needs to be modified in order to be debugged by putting `require("mobdebug").start()` somewhere near the start of the Lua code. In Decoda's case, absolutely zero modifications are needed.
