Intellij Run Anything
The IntelliJ Function ≫Run Anything≪ is rather powerful and helps me everyday speeding up my development process
By double Clicking ≫Control≪ IntelliJ Opens up a Window where you can type all sorts of actions which IntelliJ is able to run.
This includes gradle tasks, npm scripts and so on. IntelliJ searches within your package.json, build.gradle, pom.xml, ... for designated actions you can run from this dialog so you do not get generic actions. You get contextual actions from your project.
If you hold down ≫Shift≪ you also can run the action in debug mode.
Furthermore IntelliJ keeps track of your recent history of ran actions and highlights them on top.
