Testing a plugin Follow kevin poorman Created July 14, 2010 16:59 How can I install a plugin locally to test it before releasing to the public?
To install a plugin for PhpStorm manually make sure that PhpStorm is not running and put your plugin into a separate folder under the PhpStorm user plugins directory at:
* Windows: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\.WebIde10\config\plugins
* OS X: $HOME/Library/Application Support/WebIde10
* Linux/Unix: $HOME/.WebIde10/config/plugins
Hope it helps
so I place my .jar in the $HOME/Library/Application Support/WebIde10/newPlugin/ and I start php storm but I never see my plugin in the ide and I don't see any references to it being picked up in the log files. Thoughts?
If you have a JAR file, just put it under .WebIDE10 folder without the additional "newPlugin" folder.
