Discussion on: 10 Intellij Idea's plugins I'm using

I personally can't live without Grep Console. This little plugin can apply colour to log output lines based on regular expressions. Why is that useful?

  • print TRACE logs in gray
  • print INFO logs in black
  • print WARN logs in yellow
  • print ERROR logs in red

A real timesaver when you're faced with a lot of log output. It's such a small thing but for me it has become essential to the point where I wonder why IntelliJ doesn't have it integrated already.
