IntelliJ Idea / Android Studio Tip of the Day

I've been writing a lot of Javadocs lately and wondered if there was a quick and easy way to generate the Javadoc notation to link to another class or method.

Short answer: there's not?
Long answer: it's fairly easy to add it yourself using "Live Templates"

The link shows you how to add a Live Template to link to other classes in a Javadoc.  You can replicate the same behavior for methods with a few changes:

1.  Make the template text be:  {@link#$METHOD$}
2.  Change the context to be: methodName()

Unit testing Android Loaders is easy, who knew?

Following the excellent article by +Ian Lake on Android's Loader framework, I decided to write a brief post about unit testing loaders.

Turns out, its not so complicated.

How do we access WiFi by BlueStacks? When connecting it wants both a username and a password. #babbq15

It seems that in 1.4 the File Structure Popup  (command + F12 on OSX) no longer appears for me.  I can type and hit enter to jump to a method as if it was there, but the window never shows up visually.

I am on OS X 10.11

Anyone else seen this?

I would like to stop seeing this click bait in my Google+ stream. It's not something I would click on, and it's not coming from anyone that I follow.

Just follow the link from +Jeffrey Young , then click the "what's hot" link and you'll see a red square with a settings icon. There's the option.
