My Battle with Node, Npm, Webpack and its Progress plugin

It was our fault all the time, but we didn’t know how and why and we wanted to know. We wanted to know why the build of our Angular 6 application sometimes worked and sometimes didn’t when we used the same Node+Npm versions every time. I suspected the environment differences, PATH perhaps, but the punch… Continue reading My Battle with Node, Npm, Webpack and its Progress plugin

Eclipse 5 years later – common formatter quest

It was 5 years ago when I compared IntelliJ IDEA and Eclipse IDE in a series of blog posts (links to all installments at the bottom of that post). I needed to migrate from IDEA to Eclipse, tried it for couple of months and then found out that I actually can go on with IDEA.… Continue reading Eclipse 5 years later – common formatter quest

IntelliJ IDEA – subscription renewed

It has been over 16 months now since JetBrains presented their IntelliJ IDEA Personal Licensing Changes. The discussion under the post speaks for itself – there was hardly anybody who really liked it. Before you paid 100% when you bought it the first time (not to mention sales they offered ;-)) and 50% anytime you… Continue reading IntelliJ IDEA – subscription renewed

Dear IntelliJ IDEA, I love you, but…

No, no, it’s not that I’m leaving. Where would I go? To that total eclipse of sense? Or should I get some beans or what? No way… I’m with you – in good times and in bad! We’ve been through so much together! Do you remember your version 4? How we all couldn’t understand why… Continue reading Dear IntelliJ IDEA, I love you, but…

From IntelliJ IDEA to Eclipse (5)

It has been some time since I wrote last installment of this series – and much happened in the meantime. IDEA 10.5 was released (with full support of JDK 7) – and the whole beast is again a bit faster and better – though not without bugs. I’ll probably write a dedicated monologue about things… Continue reading From IntelliJ IDEA to Eclipse (5)

From IntelliJ IDEA to Eclipse (4)

Today I’ll try to focus on key shortcuts more. And also the way you can customize them. In all cases when comparing shortcuts, the first one mentioned is Idea’s, the second is from Eclipse. While Idea has static Default Keymap Reference in its Help menu, Eclipse has Key Assist (Ctrl+Shift+L) – which is more handy… Continue reading From IntelliJ IDEA to Eclipse (4)

From IntelliJ IDEA to Eclipse (3)

Today I’ll be clearly positive towards Eclipse and critical to IntelliJ IDEA. I have a lot of other stuff (originally saved for this part), but today I’ll make it short. I really found one area where Eclipse beats IDEA without any doubts! It’s really been for some time I have this code on my disk… Continue reading From IntelliJ IDEA to Eclipse (3)
