Want to implement the plugin to show images inlined into the code editor

Basically, I'd like to create the plugin to mimic the functionality like here, but for PyCharm.

I was unable to locate any examples of how to change the text editor, or anything like that.
Could someone tell me which classes/concepts should I look for to implement my idea?

Thanks in advance,
Oleg K

You were unable to find any examples of that because there aren't any. The IntelliJ editor is only capable of rendering text (with a limited set of possible decorations on top of it). There are no APIs that would allow you to draw embedded images or anything like that.
