IntelliJ IDEA Local History: A Life Saver
Some of you may not be aware of the fact that IntelliJ IDEA constantly tracks any changes you make to the project files. On the other hand, people who have used it for a while, call this feature a real life saver. The fact is, that IntelliJ IDEA maintains an internal changelist every time you’re editing, compiling or checking them out from a VCS — with the help of the Local History feature. This is why we decided to film a short live voice demo to get you familiar with the benefits of Local History.
So, what’s in it for you? Simply – you are always on the safe side because you can revert or repeat any change to any file in just few clicks. The Local History is equipped with an advanced Diff Tool which lets you spot the differences at a glance and manage them on the fly.
Local History is your personal VCS which you can use either standalone or in combination with your project VCS like Subversion, ClearCase or Perforce. Either way it extends your capabilities of controlling source code changes and provides more flexible way to managing them.
