any pointers for porting an eclipse plugin to idea?

This will be my first foray into plugin development, but the team I am working is eclipse centric and has developed a plugin they use for part of their process that I'd like to port to Idea so I don't have to switch back and forth between IDEs.

The plugin has a graphically component which I realize makes the task much harder, however I was hoping there was someone out there faced with the same problem who might have some pointer for me.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Spencer,

It's hard to provide any hints without knowing the specifics of your plugin.
The architecture of IDEA and Eclipse is quite different, so you'll need to
redesign the IDE integration code to a large degree.
