Overall Satisfaction with IntelliJ IDEA

Most of the company's back end developers use IDEA Ultimate to develop in following languages Java, Scala, some of Node.js. This is the company default and it saves a lot of boilerplate code for developers and allows developing custom plugins for IDEA to make developers' live events easier.
  • Plugin development and marketplace
  • Code navigation and search
  • Github repository integration and diff comparison
  • Database connectivity directly from the IDE
  • Great dark theme
  • Memory and CPU consumption
  • Huge installation files, major updates require full reinstallation.
  • Few open instances multiply memory usage.
  • Saves developers time by removing boiler plate code.
  • Allowing custom plugin development to allow extra functionality in IDE that developers need.
Much more functionality and freedom than in Eclipse, but it cost you money while the second is free.
Never used IT support.

Do you think IntelliJ IDEA delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with IntelliJ IDEA's feature set?


Did IntelliJ IDEA live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of IntelliJ IDEA go as expected?


Would you buy IntelliJ IDEA again?


The best for daily developing routines and having your project integrated with Github or any other repository. It allows you to write and navigate code easily, I like XML navigation and references auto-complete. You are allowed to create a connection to your working database directly from the IDE for easy debugging and validating the correctness of your code.
