olback116311yAny reason you use Eclipse for Java over Intelij?
@olback Eclipse has some features that IntelliJ lacks. For example by ctrl-hovering over a function you get a tooltip that lets you directly go to the function declaration, implementation and return type declaration.
IntelliJ does have "Go to declaration" but only with a keyboard shortcut
@mahir-halani If you don't care about specific features you should probably stick to IntelliJ. It does feel more modern than Eclipse and also supports a proper dark mode
dennie170393344dRight click and then go to definition in IntelliJ...
12bitfloat6281341d@dennie170 Cmd+Left click is only go to declaration (which is great) but I'm still missing "Go to return type" and "Open super implementation", etc.
Don't get me wrong, I love IntelliJ. It's my main IDE for everything except Java. But for the latter Eclipse is still way more productive for me
