IDE tips


One of the sessions we had at the Roundup was one entitled "IDE tips and tricks". We basically sat there with our laptops and did a show & tell of various "hidden" IDE features we knew about to help productivity. There were Eclipse, IntelliJ and NetBeans users there - and even some advocacy for Vim :) We discovered pretty quickly that this would not make for compelling listening, so we just turned off the recorder.



One thing I discovered (and which I saw during our languages coding dojo day as well) is that a lot of people don't use many of the productivity boosters. Therefore, I thought I'd bring some of these up here. Since I've been intending to start blogging more again, I'll make this a regular "column".



To kick things off, I'll just point to an old blog entry which is still relevant: Hippie Completion. Learn to use Ctrl-K while editing, it will be worth your while. (Eclipse has this too as of Eclipse 3.1; I believe it's bound to Alt-/).

Ruby Screenshot of the Week

If you've listened to the latest Java Posse episode (#99, around 56 minutes into the podcast) you heard me getting caught red handed, coding in the background while we were recording. Joe pressed me to state exactly what I was working on: Code completion within Ruby require and load statements in NetBeans. Here's a screenshot:

This will hopefully be available soon...
