Hi there! ye fellow monks.
Just writing to report that I've been trying out and actually using IntelliJ IDEA Community for Perl on a daily basis and it works AMAZINGLY WELL!!!
I am so happy, that if JetBrains would charge to commercially support it, I would actually upgrade to IJ Pro. It's THAT good, IMHO.
Also, a thank you to JetBrains for such a great IDE (I use it in my day job every day for years now).
Features I like so far:
BTW, It may seem/feel ironic that a Java IDE is probably the best tool for Perl in 2021, and painful that we can't get our crap together with Padre, but hell, anything that helps Perl adoption is good in my book. Yeah, even if it's written in Java. Besides, many people currently making a living in the JDK ecosystem, could quickly try and adopt things like Mojo or Dancer if you can integrate seamlessly into their workflow so it's a win, win, win for everyone.
