JHipster IDE provides editing support of JHipster Domain Language (JDL) files for pupular IDEs and editors such as Eclipse and Visual Studio Code.
The following features are available:
- Syntax Coloring
- Error Checking
- Hover Information
- Mark Occurences
- Go To Declaration
- Rename Refactoring
- Toggle Comments
- Outline / Structure View
- Quick Fix Proposals
- Find References
Furthermore, JHipster IDE generates automatically an UML diagram of the JDL file and provides an integration with the Eclipse terminal shell to call JHipster's Yeoman generator.
Another nice feature is Xdocker which allows to edit, build and run Docker files and images generated by JHipster directly from the IDE.
I suggest to download a fresh Eclipse Java Distribution before install JHipster IDE. Please note that the plugin requires a JDK 11 installation.
