This no workie on idea 9.0.4. Don't know if it every did work. I've seen there is a newer version available, but can't download it from idea.

This is quite discouraging. I use notepad++ to edit bat files. Sure I could do it in idea, but the comand color coding is helpful.

I can't believe jetbrains hasn't included support for bat files out of the box. I also can't believe my company (a very big one) pays for this thing when some many better tools are available for free.

Wouldn't you know I'd get it working as soon as I vent a little. Anyway, here's what I did to get it working:

  1. Downloaded the 1.0.3 version and put the idea-batch.jar in the idea\lib folder.
  2. Started idea, opened settings and plugins.
  3. Enabled Batch Scripts Support plugin (which was already in the installed list).
  4. Restarted idea.

I may have even restarted a couple of times. Not sure. Anyway, it's working now. I'm seeing color coding when I edit a .bat file.

yeah.
