Re: Make IDEA more modular?

Hello Donald,

The stuff that you don't use can be turned off in Settings | Plugins. We
find it much easier both for us and for users to have a single bundled installer
compared to a "core + plugins downloaded from elsewhere" model.

Just installed the Leda EAP and, at over 400 MB, that's a big hunk of
software. I'm sure that I don't even use half of the stuff that it
supports though. Couldn't we have an install that does the main stuff
and other things can be added as needed?

Amen. One of the things I hated about Eclipse was the ridiculous module system, downloading the world (and taking forever doing it) whenever you installed some feature or other.
