Re: [ide-dev] Some Java dev stories where Eclipse > IDEA

Thanks Mickael. Love the retweets you sent out from people who have a lot of hate for Android Studio versus Eclipse. I played with Studio quickly and found it really dumb. I guess there are some good features once you get used to it but I've been using Eclipse so long I'd hate to have to use something else, especially if it means switching back and forth to do things that Studio doesn't do, like Arduino or Raspberry Pi.

So to update the crowd on this list, I've started a reboot of the Android tooling for Eclipse, an Andmore2 if you like. It uses the Android Gradle build system and build model at the start and we'll go from there. As we need we'll bring the features we have in Andmore1 over.

There's no kidding ourselves that this is going to take a while, especially since it's just me as a side project but with guidance from Android tooling experts. But I don't think it'll take long before we have something that can round trip from project creation to debugging. I should have that ready to demo by EclipseCon. My hope is that if we have something new, simple, clean that it will attract those Android Studio haters to help finish it and get Android back into the Eclipse fold.

Hi all,

Here is a video of an IDEA user who's mentioning a few things where Eclipse is superior for Java developers.
* Completion on constructor and variable proposal for arguments in completion
* Templates easier to find
* Shortcuts easier to use with a single hand
