IntelliJ IDEA vs RequireJS: 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; RequireJS: JavaScript file and module loader. RequireJS loads plain JavaScript files as well as more defined modules. It is optimized for in-browser use, including in a Web Worker, but it can be used in other JavaScript environments, like Rhino and Node. It implements the Asynchronous Module API. Using a modular script loader like RequireJS will improve the speed and quality of your code.

IntelliJ IDEA and RequireJS are primarily classified as "Integrated Development Environment" and "Front End Package Manager" tools respectively.

"Fantastically intelligent", "Best-in-class ide" and "Many languages support" are the key factors why developers consider IntelliJ IDEA; whereas "Open source", "Modular script loader " and "Asynchronous " are the primary reasons why RequireJS is favored.

RequireJS is an open source tool with 12.2K GitHub stars and 2.3K GitHub forks. Here's a link to RequireJS's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, IntelliJ IDEA has a broader approval, being mentioned in 815 company stacks & 1065 developers stacks; compared to RequireJS, which is listed in 916 company stacks and 185 developer stacks.

    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

    No real definitive reason, I find it to be the most natural way to import libraries and code in nodejs (prior to ES6 / import).

    Used Require.js to make the application modular. It provides better dependency management with asynchronous loading of scripts.

    Very nice way to structure a project, as long as you know it will not be a hybrid app.
