IntelliJ IDEA vs pre-commit: What are the differences?

IntelliJ IDEA: Capable and Ergonomic IDE for JVM. Out of the box, IntelliJ IDEA provides a comprehensive feature set including tools and integrations with the most important modern technologies and frameworks for enterprise and web development with Java, Scala, Groovy and other languages; pre-commit: A slightly improved pre-commit hook for git. pre-commit checks your code for errors before you commit it. pre-commit is configurable.

IntelliJ IDEA belongs to "Integrated Development Environment" category of the tech stack, while pre-commit can be primarily classified under "Git Tools".

Some of the features offered by IntelliJ IDEA are:

  • Smart Code Completion
  • On-the-fly Code Analysis
  • Advanced Refactorings

On the other hand, pre-commit provides the following key features:

  • debugger: make sure you don't commit a debugger statement
  • tabs: make sure your code uses leading spaces instead of tabs
  • whitespace: make sure you don't commit trailing whitespace

pre-commit is an open source tool with 755 GitHub stars and 96 GitHub forks. Here's a link to pre-commit's open source repository on GitHub.

        I use Visual Studio because it provides me best default configuration for development. Less choice helps me concentrate on the product. In a sense it is iPhone of software development for me. When my laptop broke, I just download latest version of VS and start coding without any configuration. For sure it has best editor in terms of perceived responsiveness. Could not say the same for IntelliJ IDEA unfortunately.

        IntelliJ IDEA is our polyglot IDE of choice. We use it esentially for all programming and coding aswell as some basic database management and planning. IntelliJ IDEA has proven to be a reliable companion in developing our various software.

        eclipse 를 쓰면서 이만하면 충분한거 아닌가 왜 돈내고 IDE를 사서 쓰지 했는데, 진짜 돈 값을 한다. 정말 자동화 완성 기능은 엄청난것 같다. 단축키로 이소스 저소스 넘어 다니고 이창 저창 뜨우는게 편하다. 그리고 프레임워크 서포트 기능이 장말 강력하다. 그리고 가장 맘에 드는 점은 터미널이 기본 창에 있는 점이 좋다. CMD 가 싫으면 설정을 통해 다른 터미널 프로그램으로 바꿀수 있다.

        If Scala and Spring are the gods gifts in terms of programming languages and opinionated-frameworks, then JetBrain's IntelliJ IDEA is the IDE equivalent.

        Words don't do it justice.

        We use IntelliJ IDEA because it has great support for both Python and JS. In particular, its type-based code analyses, refactoring tools, and debugger are world class
