Web Developers about IntelliJ IDEA


Although IntelliJ IDEA is a Java IDE in the first place, it also has a strong support for Web and J2EE development. And it’s not just what we think about our product. It’s what our users think.
Here is a couple of reviews about HTML and JavaScript editing in IntelliJ IDEA:
1.   Teaching Mr. Rails a Lesson on Productivity
2.   JetBrains IntelliJ IDEA – Development Tool Review
Except for the warm words for IntelliJ IDEA, both reviews contain useful tips&tricks and examples. So, if you use IntelliJ IDEA for Web development, these articles might be helpful.

    Even I am waiting for the day when I can use IntelliJ IDEA for my PHP editing.

    I miss the time I worked with Idea(I switched the languages I use).
    Idea for python/php would be just the best thing in world, it will be the dream that comes true, but I doubt jetbrains will ever find the deal attractive, they gotta earn some money with it and I doubt they will actually.

    Now that the JVM is beginning to support a number of dynamic languages, it would be fantastic if JetBrains would follow that trend with a strategy for IntelliJ to support them. How long can new releases of IntelliJ be based around better support for Java only?

    The obvious choices to me for first class support of dynamic languages would be: Ruby, PHP, and Phython.

    This would keep me upgrading to newer versions of IntelliJ.

    Yes. PLEASE. IntelliJ with PHP support. This is a market BEGGING to be owned by Jetbrains. Eclipse is horrible. Save us Jetbrains….please.

    Could we get the official word on PHP support here? Is it planned? Does JetBrains dislike it?

    Thank you!

    (Incidentally, I work for a company whose name starts with a Y and is the largest user of PHP in the world. I do not represent my employer here, but I can say that more than one of us have an interest in using your IDE.)

    +1 for php support

    I am Java programmer, but sometimes have small tasks on PHP. I Vote for PHP support too 🙂

  17. Daryl says:

    PHP, Python and Perl please!

    One IDE to rule them all…..

    I never used IntelliJ but sense that it would be a wonder to have it for my PHP coding…

    You’d have 15 licensed copies TODAY if you had php support. We would also love the ability to support python, but it’s not insane – there are some decent alternatives.

    We already own 4 copies for Java development, love it, and are in serious pain in terms of php development tools. Most of us use textmate, I use Zend, but so far nothing that supports reasonable refactoring has come to market.

    Yes, here at our company as well, we are wishing for php support in intellij….with so many replies here about this, im hoping someone is doing something about this…

    PHP is a good thing. But, please, plan C/C++ support firstly 🙂

    We are using resin with PHP and I would love to have one environment for both java and php.

    It would bu wonderful if IDEA will support PHP at least as one tenth it supports Java 🙂

  25. Chris says:

    Waiting for ages for this feature, PLEASE add PHP support for your next release.

    No suitable plug in for this (all are buggy 🙁 )

    Keep up the good work!
    It’s the best IDEA avialable

    Another request for PHP support! I use IDEA 8.1 at work for Java and it rocks!

  28. Carina says:

    July 18, 2009

    Please, please add PHP support (including debuggin). I tend to choose languages that are supported by idea just because it this single fact. Sometimes I don’t have the choice and have to use Eclipse and it is just painful.
