This is what I learned in July 2017:
- In my main project, we use Atlassian JIRA since the beginning of the project. Recently, I learned about a cool feature: “show days in column”. The amount of days an item spend in the current column can be enabled under Board - Configure - check “Days in column”. That helps to get a feeling of the cost of an item.
- Drush is a shell for the content management system Drupal, which my site is running on. I recently installed it to ease the process of updates and backups. It’s nice to have another CLI instead of clicking around several websites.
- In my quest to use my mouse for as few tasks as possible, I installed a plugin to move a tab left and right using the keyboard. Now I can rearange my tabs with Ctrl + Shift + Page up / down. However, after installing, those shortcuts have to be reset manually because they collide with an existing one.
- Also, Ctrl + “.” expands or collapses code blocks in IDEA while F3 and Shift + F3 moves the cursor to the next occurance. Very useful.
- I learned about the “Rebase my GitHub fork” option in IntelliJ IDEA. Awesome if you have forked a GitHub repo and want it to be updated from the repo it originated.
