Plugins supporting files with extension notification

Read related topic: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/206765995-For-a-custom-language-plugin-how-can-my-plugin-be-listed-when-a-user-opens-a-file-and-the-dialog-Plugins-supporting-files-with-extension-foo-are-found-comes-up-?input_string=Plugin%20supporting%20*.xxx%20found

But seems problem was on the repo side.

And i've got the same: my Perl5 plugin is not being suggested as perl files supporter.

Hello Alexandr,

It seems that Plugin Repository has processed information from your plugin, because I do see suggestion to download your plugin for cgi files. What are the files that your except suggestion, but there is none?

The main extensions are *.pl and *.pm

Seems works for other extensions.

Could it be because IDEA has default association for pl and pm files to some Perl Type? No idea what is it, PsiViewer shows it as plain text file.

Yes, this is the reason, because plugins are suggested only for unknown file types.

Is there any way to solve this? I believe it's not right to not offer a working plugin because there is a blank association.

The other way I can see - to offer 3d party plugins if extension is handled as plain text via default extensions. But i don't know how to make it for now.

Actually it is there because there is some simple support provided by default: you can check it if you double-click Perl under Recognized File Types. http://i.imgur.com/DGugVtE.png

Your idea to show plugins suggestion for files supported this way sounds very reasonable. I will keep you informed on this issue.
