Creating/Editing new projects using an external tool


I would like to be able to create and modify IntelliJ projects using an external tool. Specifically, I need to be able to add maven projects to an existing (empty) template which already contains the user's default configuration.

Does the Open API provide an interface for generating or modifying projects? Is it possible to use it from outside IntelliJ?

The projects are stored in a simple .xml format, so you can easily write a tool that would make the necessary modifications to the project .xml files.

The OpenAPI does not provide any services for working with project files outside of a full IntelliJ IDEA environment.
