IntelliJ IDEA whingePosted on September 26, 2008
An update on IntelliJ IDEA + Scala utterly unusable
Delete ~/.IntelliJIdea80 (oh well, I’m so used to specifying my settings over and over anyway).
Start IntelliJ IDEA. Do not open a project
Install the Scala plugin
Open your project
Observe not-useless usability
1. There are still issues of not being able to open certain source folders (try it and see for yourself `scalaz.control` in Scalaz trunk) 2. Other minor annoyances that needn’t be mentioned
I have repeated this twice on different machines (8823). Swapping steps 3 and 4 result in a rapid degeneration of usefulness to the point of absolute uselessness.
Thanks again for listening. I hope the usability trend reverses.
