I've been a huge fan of Intellij IDEA ever since I worked somewhere which had commercial licences. I moved on afterwards to a .net shop and coerced my boss into getting me a ReSharper license, without which I felt I had gone back to a vintage noir movie where I was a clueless detective in front of the source code conspiracy, unable to spy without Jetbrains binoculars.
The world proceeded to shift under me again and I was back into Javaland, unfortunately with Eclipse, Eclipse everywhere, nor any smart code completion to see. I was lost in a monolithic corporation, my peers so far gone they wouldn't even conceive IntelliJ IDEA to be better than Eclipse!
Finally in Redline Smalltalk I found refuge, contributing here and there with the help of Jetbrains own elf Konstantin.
Please please Santa, grant me a Intellij IDEA 12 license so I may make the Redline Smalltalk Intellij IDEA plugin blossom in 2013. I wanted to buy one but alas I spent my pennies on the fine Redline indiegogo campaign.
PS. Please don't tell Jetbrains that the community edition of Intellij IDEA is already covering all my needs to develop the Smalltalk plugin, and I do enjoy the wicket Darcula theme! I really want the ultimate edition to take advantages of play framework support, code coverage, structural search and replace, not to mention all the other neat stuff!
