IntelliJ Settings

IntelliJ has great editors. Idea, PyCharm, and WebStorm for a start. At their simplest you only need 4 settings to make them better out of the box:

  • Right margin (columns): 80
  • Editor tabs: 100
  • Show line numbers: true
  • Appearance Theme: IDEA (4.5)
  • Keymap:
    • Emacs
    • Project Toolbar: M:1
    • Structure Toolbar: M:2
    • Changes Toolbar: M:3
  • Font: DejaVu Sans Mono 12
