JetBrains Announces Next Generation Fleet IDE, Support for Remote Coding


Software development tool company JetBrains has made two major new announcements.

The first announcement is a taste of its next-gen IDE called Fleet.

Fleet is a lightweight IDE designed to be out of the box without too much additional configuration. JetBrains promises that Fleet will be “ready in a second” for simple tasks, but its full environment – including the IntelliJ code processing engine – is accessible “with one click”.

Eugene Toporov, Vice President of Marketing at JetBrains, said:

“Our IntelliJ-based IDEs enable millions of developers to grow, and JetBrains is fully committed to working hard and making them even better.

With Fleet, we aim to offer another take on how an IDE should be organized, and we wouldn’t be able to implement it into our current product line without breaking the expectations of our existing users.

We anticipate that the current IntelliJ-based product line and the fleet will coexist for some time, leaving the options open to our customers ”.

Fleet supports Java, Python, JavaScript, Kotlin, Go, Rust, TypeScript and JSON. The IDE will soon also allow developers to code in C ++, C #, HTML5 and PHP.

JetBrains says Fleet was designed with collaboration in mind and allows developers to work on projects locally or remotely.

The IDE is also flexible enough to allow a variety of remote development scenarios, including running its backend in the cloud or on a remote server, which brings us nicely to the second announcement …

JetBrains space

JetBrains announced the public launch of Space, a remote development solution in the cloud or any other server.

Space is available for Fleet and IntelliJ IDEA users and claims to deliver the experience of a desktop IDE while shifting the heavy load to a remote server.

By initializing remote instances in advance, developers can get coding right away without wasting time setting up the environment.

Kirill Skrygan, Head of Remote Development at JetBrains, commented:

“With our remote development solution, developers can now get a ready-to-use environment directly from their own repository.

Our goal is to provide them with a seamless and unified coding experience no matter what machine they use and where they are based.

They don’t have to set up the locale and wait for their project to initialize, and most importantly, they’re not limited by the power of their own computers.

JetBrains intends Space to be an all-in-one platform for remote development and therefore has added other additional features that cover Git, CI / CD hosting, package repositories, discussions, documents and project management.

Developers can request access to the fleet overview here.
