Monthly reminder that Eclipse IDE sucks horse dick.

Worthless piece of baboon feces.

    Who still uses Eclipse?! Is that some kind of company policy?!
  • 6
    Yes, it's the compaany tech stack. My previous attempt at introducing IntelliJ als the primary IDE was not met with success.

    Eclipse for Java rocks!

    But for other languages it really does suck

    The term for bosses that stick with eclipse because it's free are "irresponsibly cheap assholes."

    @AlmondSauce lots of embedded systems companies do. I'm forced to use Xilinx SDK for example, that's basically Eclipse with add-ons. Same with ST and TI.

    Intellij for all the other java based apps

    @RememberMe I've used Momentix for QNX. Same stuff: Eclipse with plugins. Piece of trash.

    @iiii just hearing that description gives me a headache. Embedded companies seriously need to invest in better tooling and UI/UX. Xilinx's Vivado suite is at least pretty decent that way, but it's an outlier for sure.

    I'm surprised no one has brought up STS and MyEclipse

    Everytime I switch jobs, Eclipse comes back as the goto IDE for any given language. I have to switch to one that is better, but I guess it's OK for java.

    Should I take it as a sign from above?

    I'm always surprised at the eclipse hate, using it for years and it works pretty damn good for me... Or maybe i am not doing real programming, like, full with errors and such?.

    Just give eclipse jvm a bit more beef and all is well.

    When I want to feel alive again, I open a PHP file in Eclipse. An instant reminder of what you do NOT want to do.

    - 2020, still no proper multi-window support. It's all or none. Also minimizing then maximizing scrambles your settings.

    - Plugins often corrupt workspace

    - Search during launch causes Eclipse runtime error

    - Ctrl+backspace and some other editor related ctrl+ functionalities broken in newer releases

    - Toolbar shortcuts not working, when you are in an editor window with no toolbar. Because windows are not managed individually you are forced to use the mouse

    - Repeated clicking while Eclipse is busy can straightup crash it and this has been true for what? 10+ years?

    - Eclipse buildship lol

    - Unable to conveniently launch. Depending on context need to select launch instance by chaining shortcut commands

    - UI matches the overall IDE age. It is overloaded, not ergonomic and looks like some nightmare from the nineties

    - Poor UI response, poor animation performance

    - Lockups will halt your whole system until Eclipse is done murdering your CPU

    There is just one issue though if I have two maven project say A and B, where A is injected as dependency in B, I have to manually run mvn clean install for any changes in A.
    Rest is fine though.
