Illuminated Cloud is a powerful development tool hosted within JetBrains IntelliJ IDEA. Illuminated Cloud was designed and implemented with the express intent of bringing the beloved feature set of modern Java IDEs to developers. Because Illuminated Cloud is hosted within IntelliJ IDEA—both Community Edition and Ultimate Edition are supported—users are also able to leverage IDEA's extensive core feature set for development including its powerful source code editors, polyglot language support for composite applications, and tight integrations with version control, task management, and bug tracking systems.

Illuminated Cloud dramatically simplifies development and deployment of Apex, Visualforce, Lightning and other metadata types with modern IDE features such as:

  • Support for both traditional and Salesforce DX projects
  • Intelligent context-sensitive code completion and live templates
  • Extensive code navigation and cross-referencing
  • Integrated API documentation
  • ApexDoc support including auto-generation of header comments, tag and symbol completion, syntax highlighting, and quick doc rendering
  • Content type-aware static resource management and static resource bundle support
  • Template-based source file creation
  • Highly-configurable source code formatter
  • Integrated Apex unit test execution and code coverage metrics
  • Source code validation and deployment
  • Powerful connection management
  • Flexible and efficient metadata deployment, retrieval, and delete actions
  • Anonymous Apex and SOQL query execution
  • Integrated log viewer
  • Offline Apex debugger
