I actually havn't done plugin development for the IntelliJ platform until know,
but I'm eager to extend the "Tip of the Day":
I would like to let the user viewing the tip choose if (s)he wants to see this tip again or if (s)he wants to skip this one when choosing from the list (as it is already well known.
So without knowing a lot about building a plugin:
What would be possible approaches?
I thought of two:
- "Extending"(as in hook into) the existing UI (the "Tip of the Day"-popUp) to show an additional checkbox (and add some additional configuration options).
- Provide a seperate "Tip of the day"- plugin which would basically be a real extension (as in MyTipOfTheDayPopUp extends TipOfTheDayPopUp) of the things that are already included in the IDE.
Can anybody point me in the right direction (as in other approaches, documentation, ...),
so I can find out how to enhance this wonderful IDE?
