JetBrains Fleet IDE is a brand-new multi-language programming editor from JetBrains. JetBrains attempts to rebuild the IDE from the ground up.
The Fleet is distinct from JetBrains’ work in transforming the UI and UX of its existing IDEs.
You can try the IDE, which is currently in public preview, on the official Jetbrains website.
In this article, we’ll take a look at what Jetbrains’ new IDE has to offer programmers and how it differs from other IDEs on the market.
Attention, Jetbrains is not a sponsor for this article, We’ll just look at some features of the new IDE on the market.
Which Languages Support on Jetbrains Fleet?
Although more language support may come in the future, when I prepared the article, it supported the following 8 languages.
Besides these Jetbrains will bring 2 more languages (C++ and Maven) to Jetbrains Fleet soon.
Because it’s in Public Preview, language supports not fully functional some features still don’t support.
Virtual Machine Support
Jetbrains Fleet support working with Virtual Machine via Space. With the help of the cloud, more than one developer can work collaboratively on projects.
Jetbrains Fleet offers virtual machines with 16 CPU cores, 32GB Memory, 40GB disk drives.
Jetbrains previously developed tools to power collaboration separately, and these tools appear to be included in the new IDE.
A situation I frequently encountered with Jetbrains Intellij products was related to performance.
Sometimes we need to open the application quickly and look at a document. Fleet offers us two modes to it.
Editor-Light and IDE-Smart. With Editor-Light, the application can be opened quickly (this is achieved by not installing a few features) and you can work with the document. IDE-Smart provides the best working environment by loading all the features comprehensively.
Of course the tools that should be in an IDE also come with Fleet. Terminal, git, debugger, themes etc.
It is multi-platform and can run on Linux, macOS, and Windows, but there are no plugins for the IDE on the public preview (coming soon).
It is also nice that it comes with features such as Docker and remote machine. Although it is a public preview, many features are readily available.
Everything is great about this IDE but really we need a new IDE for coding. For me maybe I can change my code editor (vs code) but in the future.
For me, Vs Code plugins feature is great, if Fleet can access a large library like this, the future looks bright.
Although, If you don’t like Intelij software in my opinion you don’t need switch with Jetbrains Fleet.
We do not know what will happen in the future, but the progress looks good at the moment, I hope it continues to improve, the competition in the market will benefit users.
