Host of plugin - source repository

Hi

I'm the author of the generate toString() plugin and I'm looking for a code repository to upload my plugin to and let others be able to commit code changes and do releases etc.

I was told by Bas Leijdekkers that Jetbrains had a repository at: svn.jetbrains.org/idea

Anyone know more about this repository? I tried to find it info searching this forum but could not find any topic that had to do about hosting a plugin.

Hello Claus,

I'm the author of the generate toString() plugin and I'm looking for a
code repository to upload my plugin to and let others be able to
commit code changes and do releases etc.

I was told by Bas Leijdekkers that Jetbrains had a repository at:
svn.jetbrains.org/idea

Anyone know more about this repository? I tried to find it info
searching this forum but could not find any topic that had to do about
hosting a plugin.


This repository is currently used only for JetBrains developed plugins, and
we don't host third-party plugins there. For hosting your own plugin, you
can use, for example, Google Code:

I did not realize that. Maybe Jetbrains should consider hosting plugin sources (and other plugin stuff). I think it would stimulate plugin development to have a central place where the source of many plugins could be found. Especially with such high profile plugins as GenerateToString in it.

You can also host your plugin on codehaus, with a jira and confluence space. The old clearcase plugin is hosted there...

I don't quite see why it matters where exactly the svn repository for a particular
plugin is located. The plugin manager allows you to specify the location
of the source code of any plugin, so interested developers can use that as
a starting point for finding sample plugin code.

Dmitry, thanks for the reply.

To all: So is there any preferences where I should host it?

Well, google code is simple, straightforward, quick to setup and use. I guess this should be more your call than ours -- if you can find a service that's simple and easy enough for you, it should be easy and simple for the rest of us.

Okay the plugin will be hosted at google code:

http://code.google.com/p/generate-tostring/

I'm currently in the works of migrating the code to IDEA 7. I will upload the source to SVN and announce it when done.

If anyone wants to help build on the plugin in the future you are welcome. The plugin is open source (Apache 2.0 license).
