JetBrains IntelliJ IDEA (@intellijidea) | Twitter

IntelliJ IDEA is an intelligent, context-aware IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for developing applications in Java and other JVM languages like Kotlin, Scala, and Groovy. Additionally, IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate’s powerful integrated tools, support for JavaScript and associated technologies, and expanded support for popular frameworks like Spring, Spring Boot, Jakarta EE, Micronaut, Quarkus, and Helidon can help you design full-stack web applications. You can also use JetBrains’ free plugins to extend IntelliJ IDEA, allowing you to work with additional programming languages such as Go, Python, SQL, Ruby, and PHP.

Features of IntelliJ IDEA IDE

  • Smart code completion: IntelliJ can predict exactly what are you trying to type. It follows context-based code completion.
  • Chain code completion: It is an advanced feature, designed for auto code competition. This lists the applicable symbols through methods and getters in the present context.
  • Static member’s completion: IntelliJ enables you to use static methods and constants that automatically adds the needed statements to avoid errors.
  • Detecting duplicates: IDEA searches the duplicate code fragments on the go and gives suggestions to the user.
  • Inspections and quick-fixes: A notification light appears on the same line when IntelliJ identifies a mistake. By clicking on it, you will be given options to help you avoid making a mistake.
  • Editor-centric environment: Instant pop-ups allow you to get more information without leaving the current context.
  • Shortcuts for everything: IDEA has shortcuts for nearly everything, including rapid selection and switching between tool windows.
  • Inline debugger: Inline debugger enables the user to debug the application in IDEA itself.
