That is a rather philosophical question of reflexivity of "is plugin of"
relation:)

Yes, but the developer is so frustrated with his plugin that it may be
abandoned. :-D

Yes, I'm writing it. It simply makes things more of a pain in the ass than they need to be. For example, it disables all code completion capabilities if there are any errors in your source code. Other features include:

  • Forcing the user to switch "perspectives" to debug code.

  • Elimination of numerous features like equals and hashcode generation along with auto-disabling the toString() plugin.

  • Elimination of about 70% of the inspection gadgets and 90% of the intentions.

  • A forced left-side project window that you cannot make go away. We're doing this so Eclipse users feel at home. Lord knows they can't handle not having their little "x" markers when there's a bug in the code.

  • Removing built in XML support.

  • Removal of live templates.

  • Removal structural search and replace.

  • Removal of duplicates checking.

  • Removal of about a 20 refactorings.


But that's not all! We're also throwing in three random crashes and 8 random odd behaviors per day (including the ever-charming code out of sync with the actual file!). Eclipse users are used to restarting their editors and we don't want to disappoint!

I guess, this will be a hard job to cripple IDEA down to Eclipse features,
isn't it? ;)

Thanks for the reply. I think IDEA is great, and to be honest have very little experience of Eclipse. However, we have recently looked at several tools (e.g. Agitator) which come as plug-ins to Eclipse: so if we end up using these tools we're either going to have to move to Eclipse altogether or use Eclipse and IDEA side-by-side.

There is one more thing you can do: contact the vendors of those tools and
let them know that you would like to see IntelliJ IDEA plugins for their
tools.
