Creating .jar from plugin



I am currently trying to generate a .jar to deploy my plugin.

I've tried doing it the way jetbrains tells me to [1], but I don't have this option anywhere.

The only way I could do it up to know was to build an artifact at File -> Project Structure -> Artifacts
This way my .jar would be over 250mb, since it would altogether pack the whole community edition build withing, definetly not needed and too big.

I hope you can help me with this one.

Best regards,

Hello Fuchs,

What is your project type? Is it "Intellij Platform Plugin"?

Hello Mr. Bedrov,

that's right.

I figured it out myself now. My co-worker set up the project with a gradle build.
Now I have learned, how to use gradle for doing so, thank you!
