I am freelance software developer and (what a wonder!) develop software for profit (have to pay my bills) and fun (when I get time to do it). I am open to projects in europe (preferably Rhine-Main area ot remote with sane amount of travel). My technology stack includes everything java, android and more recently javascript (and also older and exotic stuff). Manche Beiträge werden auch auf deutsch geschrieben - а иногда и про русски.

IntelliJ Idea plugin . Part 5 - Prettyfying

Every programming language has own needs for formatting to better reflect structure. Oor grammar and syntax is somewhere in between of pascal, java and lisp with square brackets on top - so standart formatter is doing really poor job. We need better one! Anyway - tutroals of jetbrains are very scetchy on this topic so I will try to shine some light on it.

Writing IntelliJ Idea plugin . Part 1

IntelliJ Idea is not a free IDE - but since 15 years (or longer) the are able to sell against free IDEs like eclipse.
Because it is just better and easy to expand. And sometimes there is a need for support of some awkward programming language - and you have to bite a bullet and roll your own plugin.

Mocking hipsters

Cool webapps nowadays are made with lot of javascript and boilerplate code. It is almost as bad as EIB. JHipster helps you to get your prototype up and running in minutes (and it takes a lot more time to look arround at all the cool stuff that you do not have to write yourself by hand). But you still have to code your business logic - and of course test it. How does it play together with mocking?
