IntelliJ IDEA 10: free IDE for Android development
Yes, you’ve read it correctly. No mistake here.
It’s been one year since we open-sourced IntelliJ IDEA and announced its free Community Edition. If you are curious to know the results of that bold move and see some stats and charts — check out this article on DZone.
Today, one year later, IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition gets a big addition: Android development plugin becomes available in the free edition of IntelliJ IDEA starting with version 10.
Please note we’re NOT open-sourcing something we don’t want to develop ourselves. In addition to improvements to existing IntelliJ IDEA features for Android developers, we will add the following new ones in version 10:
- Android unit-testing support,
- Android Library Projects Support,
- using Maven in Android projects is now possible,
- quick navigation to resources from their usages.
P.S. Those of us using Android phones truly hope that this will come back in the form of more great apps for our mobile devices! :)
UPDATE: Check out our official website for more details and learning materials about Android development and IntelliJ IDEA.
Develop with pleasure!
