IDEtalk is collaboration software that brings code-related communications directly to IntelliJ™ IDEA.
The last version of IDEtalk is bundled with IntelliJ IDEA 6.0. For IntelliJ™ IDEA 4.5/5.0 IDETalk is provided as an add-on.

Install IDEtalk right now!

What you get with IDEtalk in IntelliJ IDEA 4.5/5.0

  • Exchange messages with your fellow developers right inside the IDE (in the local network only until the release of v.1.0)
  • Right click in your editor and send a "code pointer" - a reference to that particular point in the file.
  • Send stacktrace to one or several users from your contact list. The stacktrace will be navigatable on the receiving side.
  • View list of files opened in IDEA by any of your IDEtalk contacts. Hide your files from viewing, if you don't like to be spied.
