Hi, I was wondering how folks share their IDE settings with their teammates. I have an idea, and would like to know if anyone saw an issue with it, or if anyone has better ideas. We are not using TeamCity (although we may investigate it in a few months)
Recently, we just standardized our group to use Intellij on windows xp.. Our eclipse folks are now using it as well, and they are not too impressed with the sharing features.
Basically, I’d like to share
1. code style
2. file templates
3. inspection profiles
4. and maybe 1 or 2 more settings.
1. Check these directories into a CVS module – something like IDEA_CONFIG
2. have each developer create a System property like %IDEA_CONFIG_DIR%
3. provide a .bat that will cvs update -C the versioned dirs to %IDEA_CONFIG_DIR%.
Does anyone see an issue with this or have a better solution? Any ideas would be appreciated.
