Big Data Tools EAP 3: IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3 EAP Compatibility, Documentation, and More
It’s been a while since our last update on Big Data Tools. Our team has been busy addressing your feedback, fixing bugs, and adding important new features.
First of all, the Big Data Tools plugin is now available in IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3 Beta. In case you don’t know, this is a new upcoming version of the IDE focused entirely on performance and UX. The update brings tons of major and minor improvements overall that will make working with the IDE even more enjoyable.
Second, in order to help you get started with the Big Data Tools plugin, we’ve added the official documentation page to IntelliJ IDEA’s help. In the documentation, you’ll find details on what the plugin is capable of, how to properly configure it, and what to do if you face any difficulties.
To make your experience of working with Zeppelin notebooks even more ergonomic, Zeppelin notebooks are now available in the Recent Files popup.
Using this feature Ctrl+E (Cmd+E for macOS), you can quickly switch to recently edited notebooks – without the need to open the Big Data Tools tool window.
Last but not least, the contents of the recently added Structure popup (which shows the structure of the notebooks) are now displayed in the Structure tool window. Now you can see the notebook and its structure side by side, and then easily navigate to a paragraph.
For a more detailed list of the bugs fixed in this update, please refer to the release notes.
P.S.: If you haven’t already registered for the upcoming live webinar with Jeff Zhang on developer tools for data engineers scheduled for December 3rd, make sure to do so. Hurry, space is limited. If you register, we’ll send you an email with a link to the recording afterwards too (just in case you cannot make it to the live webinar).
P.P.S.: While this update is focused mostly on minor improvements, our team is working hard to bring in some very cool features, which I’m sure lots of data engineers will appreciate. Stay tuned, and spread the word!
