<p>Hello ColdFusion community.  Over the years I’ve used several different integrated development environment (IDE) tools for my ColdFusion projects.  Here’s a brief timeline of the IDEs that I’ve used over time in chronological order: Macromedia/Adobe Dreamweaver CFEclipse CFBuilder IntelliJ IDEA I feel like each IDE that I’ve used over time served a purpose.  Dreamweaver, for example, was a great learning tool and for someone just starting to learn web design, the “design view” and integrated FTP synchronization was a valuable […]</p>

I've been using CF Builder 2 because it is the only thing that will work in the same version of Eclipse with Flash Builder 4.7 -- I can run CF Builder 3 as a separate app if I want, but I don't want to use two different IDEs when I work, so I'm "stuck" with CF Builder 2. We're migrating away from Flex, so Flash Builder 4.7/CF Builder 2 is going away soon -- thank God! What an awful IDE it has been! I can't wait to be rid of it! We're switching to Angular 2 for our front end (almost done replacing our old Flex apps with Angular 2 apps), but we'll still be using ColdFusion for the server-side stuff. I've been using WebStorm for the Angular 2 stuff, and Flash Builder 4.7/CF Builder 2 for the Flex and ColdFusion stuff. When Flex is completely gone, I will upgrade WebStorm to IntelliJ IDEA and use it for Angular 2 and for ColdFusion, so I can have all my work in one IDE.

Does IntelliJ IDEA do any of the code introspection on your components or ORM Entities? CFBuilder does that but Sublime and VSCode do not.

Ctrl+R gives you quick access to your methods in a CFC, but I use the Keyboard Extension for Sublime Text 3 in VS Code. So Ctrl+R for VS Code by default might do something different.

Yes it does. It's extremely helpful when doing OOP ColdFusion development.
