ah, #IntelliJ is asking questions again! It's always so helpful!

Module X has no exported member Y. Did you mean to use 'import Y from X' instead?

Awww... #IntelliJ/#CLion isn't compatible with the new #Rust 1.70 release. Womp womp.

There are integration issues with the test runner.

Looks like there won't be a fix for this until Rust stabilizes a machine-readable format for test results. And you know how long they take to stabilize things. The tracking issue has been open since 2018! :blobcatgrimacing:

Just got an update to my “Getting to know IntelliJ IDEA" book - thanks @trisha_gee & @HelenJoScott !! Can't wait to read this at lunch!

#java #intellij #jetbrains #intellijidea #books #bookstodon

For my very small #Rust project, I asked IntelliJ IDEA to run all tests with coverage reporting, and it caused Cargo to install something called grcov. And about two-dozen crates as dependencies. Since then the compile/run times have gone up by several seconds.

How does a test coverage reporting feature have such a heavy footprint?

Oh hey, I figured out why #Intellij/#CLion chokes on my #Rust proc macro! :blobcatcheer:

It took quite of debugging to figure this out, but if your proc macro prints its tokens to stdout before returning them, cargo/rustc do not care at all, but that apparently causes errors in IntelliJ.

So IDE support increases dramatically (ie macro expansion works again) if you don't print anything to stdout in the macro.

But then you can't debug your tokens on the console. But the IDE expander works now, so you can use that instead?

I guess it's an either-or kind of situation? :blobcatgooglyshrug:

#Rust procedural macros are really powerful, if somewhat painful to use. But #IntelliJ/#CLion has a really hard time expanding them, so IDE support is limited which reaaaally hinders their usefulness. With any luck, I can rely on older codegen techniques and declarative macros instead for this project.

Womp womp. Apparently proc macros take a lot of work to support in the IDE, so it's hard to get them just right. JetBrains was nice enough to write a blog post explaining why:

I find that programming in #scala with #Github Copilot is nice and helpful.
It comes up with some very good guesses on what code is needed, Those need to be read carefully and improved on, but this can save a lot of time looking up APIs and documentation scattered around in many places. For example, I think Copilot helped a lot with the code shown in lines 64-75 of the test suite below.
I wonder how much strongly typed #scala helps Copilot here. But it certainly comes up with very good guesses, such as the test on the last line.
This works with #IntelliJ and #VisualStudio #githubcopilot

Test code is written with the help of Github Copilot in Visual Studio Code #VSC. The grey line at the bottom are those it is just suggesting now.

With the plugin "GitToolBox" you can automatically delete merged local branches.

Second day into using #helixeditor as my only editor and so far it's going pretty well.

I've never really had success with modal style editors but I've been keeping some notes about keybinds as I need them and so far I've been able to adjust to them pretty well.

I'm still slower than my #intellij setup but I feel like the break even point isn't that far away and hopefully I can learn to embrace the full modal experience to speed things up.

@zaherg guess you are using #phpstorm which is a great tool and covers a lot of ground. I also use #intellij a lot, often for web services, but also for other kind of java applications. I use #clion for stuff which is definitely not web, such as embedded targets. I would assume #webstorm and #pycharm can be interesting to work with, but I haven’t, as of yet.

✨ What is the best editor for Rust or any other programming language?

#rustlang #programming #developers #rust #intellij #vscode #vim #neovim #helix

My response to "what's the best editor for x programming language?" is always "what's your favorite editor for other programming languages? Can that editor be configured to work for x?"

So, if you already use and like intellij then use intellij for rust.

If you already use and like vim then use vim for rust.

If you already use and like vscode then use vscode for rust.

If you already use and like emacs then use emacs for rust.

If you already use and like sublime then use sublime for rust.

@hkrn TIL there is an #AWK plugin for #IntelliJ (I sort of like the idea of AWK, but the language is not sticky for me, so I always have to look the half of the one-liner I need to fetch a column up in the documentation).

Quick #intellij + #micronaut #tip

The IDE launches your ./gradlew run task for you. But if you edit it, and add the -t continuous build flag, you'll get continuous rebuild/relaunch on source file changes. No need to relaunch manually.

Editing the run configuratoin to use gradlew run -t, with the -t flag doing continuous rebuild.

Immer in der Hoffnung dass der scheiß mit dem nächsten Rechner evtl. nur noch so benutzbar langsam wie damals Delphi sein könnte.

I think #Scala deserves criticism, but when I think about the state of the tooling and the ecosystem, I can't help but feel that the build tools and the IDEs are freaking awesome.

Metals may have some bugs, but have you considered how awesome it is that we have a language server that works? E.g., #Kotlin can't say that, and #Python's VSC extension was riddled w/ Microsoft's proprietary shit.

Also, #IntelliJ is freaking wonderful, w/ the frontend's false positives being a minor annoyance.

@joshourisman Oh, man, I've been bit by an accidental smart quote too many times in my programming career.

If you use #VSCode or any of the #Jetbrains / #IntelliJ IDEs, we also have plugins that let you refer to secrets stored in #1Password.

Instead of using a real value in your configs, environment variable files, or anywhere else in the codebase, just drop in the secret reference in your IDE. It works in local and deployed environments.

Well, in comparison to the old one, it's a huge improvement 😄. I didn't notice the lack of tooltips, though. That's definitely an issue. The #IntelliJ UX has always been miserable. Who can remember a gazillion different Ctrl, Alt, Cmd, some random letter "shortcuts"? I can't. They need to hire a competent UX person. At least their vim emulation is better than VSCode's!

Personally I’ve just made the jump from #intellij towards doing most of my #java work in #Neovim, which finally works pretty fantastic with all the new bells and whistles that lsp and treesitter has introduced. My biggest gripe is that I still haven’t been able to get Java DAP running, which will enable me to run individual unit tests in test classes effortlessly. Right now the alternative is to either run the whole suite (‘mvn test’) or spin up #Intellij for a while.
