Compatible with Ubuntu and based Operative Systems
The IntelliJ IDEA is an IDE, developed by JetBrains, that was originally intended to make the life easier for Java programmers, offering a wide range of tools and framework support. Nowadays it also implements tools for other programming languages, like Scala, Groovy or Ruby, and frameworks, like NodeJS, Rails, etc. Currently distributed in a Community and Ultimate editions (being the last commercial), it is considered by many one of the best available IDE for these languages. Because no debian, or equivalent installer, is provided by JetBrains for Linux machines, in this article I’ll explain how to setup the environment, including application shortcuts, into Xubuntu (also compatible with Ubuntu and based versions, like Lubuntu).
