Look & Feel revisited


I wanted to ask anyone from IntelliJ if the L&F that IDEA is using is an in-house project?

If it is: will it ever be released so that others could use it.

If it isn't: what's it called and where can I get it?

Kind regards, Stefan Freyr.

It's an in-house project, and it isn't much more than a Metal L&F with different colors and a few tweaks here and there.

Well, we have asked for it before, can't remember correctly now what was JetBrains answer. Well, my opinion is that what makes IDEA L&F great is not the LookAndFell in the programming sense, but just a combination of good design and colors. We could just look at IDEA and use it as inspiration for our apps.
