Ah, semantics. “Does not allow” is different from “has no plugin” to me, and you were saying the former but meant the latter. You are right about that, then. To my knowledge, there is no debugger plugin for Vim.
However, there is a project by the Vim author, called A-A-P, which aims to do the opposite: rather than put an IDE inside Vim, he is working on an IDE (called Agide) which has Vim inside. And that one does have gdb integration.
