So unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few years you’ve probably heard of JetBrains and their wonderful IDE, IntelliJ IDEA. Originally a Java IDE, they’ve fleshed it out to support a variety of additional platforms. They have arguably the best Flex tooling on the market and have since added support for the Web stack, Ruby, Python, etc etc etc.
I know not everyone is crazy about using IDEs, if it’s not your cup of tea then thanks for stopping by and you can feel free to stop reading here. If you want to learn how to set up IDEA to do fancy things with Node.JS and HTML5 development, however, keep reading!
(Note: I did this using IntelliJ IDEA 11. I do not have any idea how this will apply to previous or future versions of the IDE. If you have success or failure using this approach on other versions please let us know in the comments, as well as describing any tweaks you had to do to make it work right!)
