I am trying to build a plugin I wrote: https://github.com/johnthagen/clion-cppcheck
I am using IntelliJ Ultimate 2016.3.4.
I am following the plugin development guide here: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/2016.3/plugin-development-guidelines.html
After I check out the code from GitHub, I open it with IntelliJ. The problem is that IntelliJ seems to auto-detect that is just a Java project rather than a plugin project. I have found no way to change this and tell IntelliJ that I need to treat the module as a plugin module instead.
What steps do I need to take to actually get IntelliJ to build the module as a plugin?
