IDE Talk: Instant Messaging within IDE

For IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition integration with TeamCity is available through a plugin.

IDE Talk

Now developers can communicate with each other and discuss their code without leaving the IDE. The bundled Instant Messaging client provides not only standard actions like exchanging text messages, management of contacts, and navigation through message history, but also unique code-related communications allowing developers to:

  • Send "code pointer" — a reference to a particular point in the file with one-click navigation
  • Send stacktrace with direct links to underlying source code
  • View difference between project files opened by two team members
  • View a list of files opened in IntelliJ IDEA by any of the contacts
  • Manage others' access to the IDE project files
