I have a favourite decompiler that only comes in a command line option.
I would like to make it a gui version like jd-gui.
This would require a panel that could display the contents of jar files and have an editor/file viewer that can link to methods/classes etc.
IDEA can do all this apart from the decompile part so I want to leverage all of Intellijs platform then link in the decompiler.
Obviously I could just make it as a plugin, however, I am interested to know how small I could make the application if those were the only features I needed?
Would the download still be huge and still require lots of memory or is it possible to create a relatively small application based on the Intellij platform?
