Discussion on: My Favorite IntelliJ IDEA Plugins

I like PlantUml and use Sonarlint with same "issues" as you mentioned, but it can be helpful - I'll give GitToolbox a try, though I am more of a CLI guy :). Also for someone developing in frontend the Node.js plugin is a must have. Some other worth mentioning that I use are "Extra icons", "Lombok" and "Rainbow brackets"...

I find also the plugin I developed "indispensiable" - Save snippets to, but it has more to do with the fact that I am dependent on storing and retrieval of bookmarks and reusable snippets - when the time will allow it, I want to extend to permit direct searching in the IDE...

I used to be a git "CLI Guy", but now feel comfortable doing most of my git work from within IntelliJ IDEA.

Lombok is a part of the standard distribution these days, so I didn't call it out, but it's a necessity if you're using Lombok in your project.

I actually have "Rainbow Brackets" installed, but it doesn't seem "indispensable". I think? I'll have to disable it and see how much I notice the difference. :)
