IntelliJ IDEA is an integrated development environment (IDE). It was developed by JetBrains and was initially released in 2001. IntelliJ IDEA is written in JAVA and it aims to offer users an optimized coding experience by providing in depth coding assistance. On this IntelliJ download page, we discuss some of the app’s key features, as well as some additional information.

Key features

Here are some of the main features of IntelliJ:

  • Code Insight: One of the most important features is the ability to provide users with deep code insight. The software offers in-depth coding assistance, quick navigation, clever error analysis, and refactorings. This is possible through chain, and static members completion, data flow analysis, language injection, and cross-language refactorings, among others.

  • Ergonomics: IntelliJ IDEA aims to offer developers an optimized experience. In order to allow users to continue their workflow uninterrupted, it comes with an intuitive interface, shortcuts, an editor-centric environment, and an inline debugger.

  • Built-in Tools: IntelliJ IDEA comes with a whole pack of built-in developer tools. Those include a decompiler, a bytecode viewer, an FTP, a test runner and coverage, and many more. Users can enjoy them from the start.

  • Languages: As mentioned above, IntelliJ IDEA is written in JAVA, however, it also provides support for many JVM and non-JVM frameworks and languages out of the box. It offers coding assistance for Spring, Java EE, Grails, Play, Android, GWT, Vaadin, Thymeleaf, React, AngularJS, but it also understands Groovy, Kotlin, Scala, JavaScript, TypeScript, and SQL.

Is IntelliJ IDEA safe?

It seems that the software has no history of security issues or abusive data collecting. As always, we recommend reading the official Privacy policy before installing.

Is IntelliJ IDEA free?

This is a free trial version that expires after 30 days of use. The IntelliJ IDEA Community edition is free, however, it is specifically dedicated to JVM and Android development.
