First download JDK 1.6 and use that to run jEdit. I also add this tweak to the command line:
Also, remove the -server option. No clue if that is gonna help at all in JDK 1.6, but things are blazing fast without it and I assume Swing likes it without.
Next, download these plugins:
- Buffer Tabs
- Project Viewer
- Ruby (http://rubyjedit.org/download/)
Next, follow the ruby plugin directions to get that up and running. If you are using Java, I would assume that you can find lots of help with that out in the ether.
Also, dock the Project Viewer window on the left of the screen.
I turn on the BufferTabs by default and set them on the right.
Okay, now start binding keys. Here are mine thus far:
Plugin: Project Viewer
|Show Project Viewer||Alt+1|
|Show Fast Open Window||Ctrl+n|
|Close current docking area||escape|
|Go to line||Ctrl+g|
This is about all I have thus far, but it looks to be pretty good. I’ll add more as I think of new stuff.
One thought on “Making jEdit like IntelliJ”
The -server option tell’s jedit to not close the jvm when you close the app. This keeps it running in the system tray. It avoids the jvm startup costs for future invocations. Not as necessary these days, but years ago was a huge help.
