Software at Oregami

At Oregami we are using a bunch of open source software products, or commercial products that are freely available to open source projects like us to get things done. This blog post will tell you what we are using!

Software for Development

IntelliJ IDEA

You are a Java developer? Chances are high that you are using Eclipse IDE which is available under a free license. I am using Eclipse now for many years myself, and I got "used to it".

Somehow I got aware of IntelliJ IDEA from Jetbrains, which they call "The Most Intelligent Java IDE". It is not completely available for free: they offer a free "Community Edition", but many useful features are only available if you buy the "Ultimate Edition". Fortunately, Jetbrains offers an Open Source License for the Ultimate Edition. IntelliJ IDEA is available for Mac, Linux and Windows.
