Want to write plugin, don't know where to begin

Are there some documents or similar somewhere that tell you how to get started with writing plugins for IntelliJ? Even a sample project would be useful - but I can't find any 'official' or unofficial information, articles, tutorials, or anything.

Try reading http://www.intellij.com/docs/PlugIns.pdf if you haven't gone through that yet.

Also, download some plugins from http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/IntelliJPluginsHome and view source code. I don't know which are the best examples, but that depends on what type of plugin you are developing. I used the StarTeam VCS integration to start learning plugin API.
