Overall Satisfaction with IntelliJ IDEA

I have been using IntelliJ IDEA for more than 2 years. As a Data Engineer at my company Datametica, I have been using IntelliJ IDEA to work in Scala and Spark, and I also need to work with Shell scripting too. This software is so easy to use and is very helpful in rapid development.
  • It auto imports all the packages from the pom.xml in my Scala development.
  • Makes easy suggestions to improve code.
  • Helpful when migrating code from one version to another.
  • Heavy to use/run.
  • Sometimes it gets stuck/freezes and work will be lost.
  • Costly.
  • It has helped me with migrating code.
  • Auto imports/downloads all the dependencies of pom.xml in Spark development.
Chosen for its feature of auto-downloading dependencies and intelligent suggestions.

Yes

Would you buy IntelliJ IDEA again?

It is well suited in Android and Scala development, I would definitely recommend it to all of my friends for this. The dark theme is really relaxing on the eyes. I would say it is much heavier on your PC and much costlier than other available software.
