Where I can get the total API list for plugin developing?

Hi all:
     I wonder where I can find the whole API for plugin developing, not those articles about some basic functionality.

To give a more extended answer: There is no full list of APIs because there is no fixed boundary separating what is API and what is not. Most of the classes in IntelliJ IDEA are public, and there are tasks which can only be accomplished by using the classes which weren't explicitly marked as part of the API - but they are still available and can be used to solve the problem at hand.

If you're interested in things that the plugin API allows you to do, you can look at the plugins that are shipped as part of IntelliJ IDEA. Anything they can do, you can do in your plugins as well.

If you have a specific task in mind, you're always welcome to ask in this forum, and people will give you advice regarding the best API to use for your task.
