IntelliJ IDEA and yFiles diagrams

I have a long history with IntelliJ IDEA and in overall I love it. Sure there are tons of minor (and also more than minor) issues but it’s just like with a marriage – you have to find a partner who’s flaws you can tolerate. IntelliJ IDEA is such a partner for me.

IntelliJ IDEA – subscription renewed

All my pros about Eclipse still applies (EMF,… Continue reading From IntelliJ IDEA to Eclipse (2)

Eclipse vs IntelliJ IDEA

It’s official. This is just a rant. It always is, because even the most serious comparisons of these tools are always clear win for the one used originally and total dismiss of the newly adopted one. I’m Idea user – for almost 9 years or so. I remember a few let downs with Idea –… Continue reading Eclipse vs IntelliJ IDEA
