While playing around Icenium, I liked almost every features in this Cloud based IDE. However below I am listing my favorite 5 features.

Just Code is integrated with Code Editor. In Code Editor, we can perform tasks like

  2. Navigation
  3. Code Commands

We can perform Code Commands like

  • Formatting of Code
  • Expand selection
  • Duplicate a text
  • Put a block comment

The best part is, there is short cut for all the operation. In Navigation we can perform tasks like

  • Go To File
  • Go To Member
  • Go to Symbol

So my one of my favorite feature in Icenium is its elegant Code Editor.
