Every developer needs great tools to work efficiently. Setting up these tools manually can be tedious and error-prone. Furthermore, some projects may require different versions and configurations of such tools. Especially configurations like code-formatters should be consistent within a project to avoid diff-wars.
devonfw-ide will solve these issues. Here are the features you will find through
Set up your IDE within minutes tailored for the requirements of your project.
Automate the setup and update, avoid manual steps and mistakes.
KISS (Keep It Small and Simple), no native installers that globally mess your OS or tool-integration that break with every release. Instead, use templates and simple shell scripts.
For your project you should copy these settings to an own git repository that can be maintained and updated to manage the tool configurations during the project lifecycle. If you use GitHub or GitLab every developer can easily suggest changes and improvements to these settings via pull/merge requests, which is easier to manage with big teams.
Do you need an additional tool you had never heard of before? Put it in the
softwarefolder of the structure. The
devonCLI will then automatically add it to your
Further you can create your own commandlet for your additional tool. For closed-source tools you can create your own archive and distribute it to your team members as long as you care about the terms and licenses of these tools.
It works on all major platforms: Windows, Mac and Linux.
You can have several instances of the
devonfw-ide"installed" on your machine for different projects with different tools, tool versions and configurations. You won’t need to set up any physical installation nor changing your operating system. "Installations" of
devonfw-idedo not interfere with each other nor with other installed software.

We support the following platforms:
We support the following build-systems:
However, also other IDEs, platforms, or tools can be easily integrated as commandlet.
TL;DR? Lets talk to developers a correct language. Here are some examples with
[/]$ devon You are not inside a devonfw-ide installation: / [/]$ cd /projects/devonfw [devonfw]$ mvn zsh: command not found: mvn [devonfw]$ devon devonfw-ide environment variables have been set for /projects/devonfw in workspace main [devonfw]$ mvn -v Apache Maven 3.6.0 (97c98ec64a1fdfee7767ce5ffb20918da4f719f3; 2018-10-24T20:41:47+02:00) Maven home: /projects/devonfw/software/maven Java version: 1.8.0_191, vendor: Oracle Corporation, runtime: /projects/devonfw/software/java Default locale: en_DE, platform encoding: UTF-8 OS name: "mac os x", version: "10.14.3", arch: "x86_64", family: "mac" [devonfw]$ cd /projects/ide-test/workspaces/test/my-project [my-project]$ devon devonfw-ide environment variables have been set for /projects/ide-test in workspace test [my-project]$ mvn -v Apache Maven 3.6.0 (97c98ec64a1fdfee7767ce5ffb20918da4f719f3; 2018-10-24T20:41:47+02:00) Maven home: /projects/ide-test/software/maven Java version: 11.0.2, vendor: Oracle Corporation, runtime: /projects/ide-test/software/jdk/Contents/Home Default locale: en_DE, platform encoding: UTF-8 OS name: "mac os x", version: "10.14.3", arch: "x86_64", family: "mac" [ide-test]$ devon eclipse launching Eclipse for workspace test...

This was just a very simple demo of what
devonfw-ide can do. For further details have a look at our CLI documentation.
Now you might ask:
But I use Windows/Linux/MacOS/… - it works on all platforms!
But how about Windows CMD or Power-Shell? - it works!
But what if I use cygwin or git-bash on windows? - it works!
But I love to use ConEmu or Commander - it works with full integration!
How about macOS Terminal or iTerm2? - it works with full integration!
But I use Zsh - it works!
…? - it works!
Wow! So let’s get started with download & setup.
