I'm trying to make a plugin for a simple language as described in http://www.jetbrains.org/intellij/sdk/docs/tutorials/custom_language_support_tutorial.html.
I've created the initial boilerplate but it fails to load in the sandboxed instance of IDEA that is invoked when I Run or Debug the project. Instead of my plugin, in the plugin list it has "Plugin display name here" with version "1.0", made by "YourCompany", just as in a brand new plugin.xml file. There are no error messages in the console, it just fails silently. Thus, I can't test/debug it at all, but if I just choose to package it into a .jar and load in, say, CLion, it works just fine and registers a new file type with extension, icon and all the needed stuff. What could be done to make testing a tad easier?
