Intellij idea structural search and replace

Structural search and replace examples—IntelliJ IDEA is neat! Templates are like this:


Note the “target”, usually it’s set to a complete match, but by call and by params exists too.

I had to disable ideavim, because it was doing some weird formatting by itself with brakets and indents that broke checkstyle.

Filters are also important - $params$ will catch only what.function("one"), but won’t what.function(one, two) - had to change count to be [1, +inf]. (1, not 0, because I needed to avoid replacing what.function().)

“Expression cannot be replaced by non-expression” - if you add a ; at the end of the template, it’s an expression now, and the replacement also needs a ; now.

Java “do nothing” instruction (a la pass)

; works! 1 A bigger one that makes checkstyle happy is assert true;
