I don't know if this is because my project has a lot of included libraries or because my code has a fair few implicits, but intellij is seeming very slow these days. For example pasting a few lines into a source file will send the system into a whirl of cpu activity and lock me out for 10+ seconds - making cut and paste really frustrating.
This is on a notebook running i7-2630QM with 8gb ram running intellij with these vm options
- External Libraries
- < 1.7 >
I am not using type-aware highlighting.
I am currently registering about 1 second of cpu time per second of working (quite a lot goes in parallel) - but I've had a number of phone calls in that time so the actual tally is worse - a single keystroke just consumed 6s and typing
knocked up about 30s of cpu time - most of it after it had managed to autotype the </hello> bit.
My project is less than 5000 loc - although the libraries obviously consume a fair bit.
I have similar behaviour on another machine (but it's the same code, synced)
The project was built with sbt and gen-idea for the intellij stuff.
Any suggestions as to what might make it go faster? I've been experiencing these problems for a couple of weeks - so I don't know if it's related to the latest build or to bringing in all the spray and akka libraries - they both happened around the same time.
