If you don't like JetBrains IDE, turn right and search


If you search GitHub with "Julia IntelliJ" (data collected at 2018/1/28 (YYYY/M/DD)), you'll find 4 related repositories:

  • snefru/juliafy (incomplete syntax highlight, SDK management, file recognizing, only support MacOS)
  • sysint64/intellij-julia (this only recognize your file as a
    Julia file
    , and do nothing else)
  • satamas/julia-plugin (ditto)
  • JuliaEditorSupport/julia-intellij (too many features, can't list here)

Now you know your choice 😉
