New Product


  • Coding assistance
    • Smart completion - The IDE helps you write new code by auto-completing statements for you. Ctrl+Shift+Space gives you a list of the most relevant symbols applicable in the current context. When you choose a suggestion, it adds corresponding package import statements on the fly.
    • Inspections and quick-fixes - The IDE provides built-in inspections that check your code on the fly as you type it. When they find problematic code, they provide you with quick-fixes which you can apply simply by pressing Alt+Enter.
    • Refactorings - Includes Rename and Extract, allowing you quickly and safely change your code.
    • Quick navigation - It only takes one click to switch to a super method, implementation, usages, declaration, and more. Jump to any class, file or symbol, or even any IDE action or tool window in one click.
    • Quick popups - When you need more information about a symbol at the caret, use quick popups.
    • Code generation - In some cases the IDE can generate trivial code for you. For example, if you click Ctrl+O, the IDE will help you implement any interface by generating its methods.
    • Detecting recursive calls - If you have a recursive call inside your function, the IDE will detect it and mark it on the gutter, making your code even easier to read and understand.
    • Expression type - The Expression Type action is available via Alt+ and is always at hand when you need to know the type of any expression at the caret.
    • Exit points highlighting - Every function may have more than one return and panic statements. To quickly find them all, press Ctrl+Shift+F7 when the caret is at a func, return, or panic keyword. This helps you understand more quickly how a function works.
    • Finding usages - The Find Usages feature finds all places in the code where a symbol is used, and also groups the usages by type.
    • Formatter - The built-in formatter provides the same functionality as go fmt.
  • Code editor
    • Semantic highlighting - This option extends the standard syntax highlighting with unique colors for each parameter and local variable.
    • Parameter hints - The editor shows parameter hints for literals and nils used as method arguments.
  • Built-in tools and integration
    • Debugger - The IDE comes with a full-featured debugger that supports common debugger features: Watches, Evaluate Expression, Show Inline Values, and others. The debugger works for applications as well as for tests.
    • Coverage - If you run your code with a coverage instruction, the IDE collects the data and displays it in both the aggregated view and per statement in the Editor.
    • Test runner - The IDE provides a dedicated interface for running and debugging tests, benchmarks and checks.
    • Go tools - The Code > Go Tools menu allows you to run Go tools on your project without switching to the command line.
    • Plan9 - The Editor provides syntax highlighting for Plan9 files.
    • Version control - Built-in Git integration lets you browse the history of changes, manage branches, merge conflicts and much more. For other version control system, similar functionality is available via corresponding plugins: Mercurial, SVN, and others.
    • Terminal - The IDE comes with a built-in terminal. Depending on your platform, you can work with command line prompt, Far, powershell, or bash. Invoke the terminal with Alt+F12 and execute any command–without leaving the IDE.
    • Docker - The IDE offers a plugin that lets you connect to locally running Docker machines to manage images, containers and Docker Compose services.
  • Front-end and back-end development
    • JavaScript, HTML and CSS - The IDE offers coding assistance for JavaScript, TypeScript, Dart, React and many others. Support for Angular and Node.js is available via plugins.
    • Database tools - Take advantage of intelligent coding assistance when editing SQL. Connect to live databases, run queries, browse and expert data and even manage your schemes in a visual interface - right from the IDE.
    • Plugin ecosystem - GoLand includes 50+ IDE plugins including support for additional VCS, integration with different tools and frameworks, and editor enhancements such as Vim emulation.
