We are using checkstyle and other tools to help our development. For Eclipse we can generate config using the maven eclipse plugin. Does anyone know of something similar or have suggestions on how I would generate the proper config to do similar things for Idea? For sake of argument I think we can assume that I have the correct Plugins in Idea and I've figured out what settings for those plugins I want. The question is how do I get Idea or something to generate the right entries in misc.xml, for example, without having to manually set the same stuff everytime I import a new project or my project files get blown away.
