Offline alternatives for Workspace that support Console.

Hey everyone!

Is there any offline alternatives for Workspace that support Console to use on Java Objects course? Due to my location it is almost impossible to use the default one and VPNs work worse and worse each day. Craig posted a reply to a similar question saying he is working on L(ocal)DE and it may come out soon - that would be nice to have when it is available.

For Java, I'd recommend IntelliJ IDEA (https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/download/). The community edition is free and open-source as well. Plus it's the same IDE Android Studio is built on so you wouldn't have to learn 2 different IDEs if you do both Java and Android together.

Specifically for Java, I would look at Eclipse (https://eclipse.org/ide/), as it probably has everything you need, plus it's open-source.
