Portability of intellij plugins


Is a plugin, developed by following https://www.jetbrains.org/intellij/sdk/docs/basics/getting_started.html , portable within intellij idea and clion? Because for the testing purpose i am using intellij idea community as a target IDE (clion target doesnt work for me). will my plugin work in clion at the end of development? Could you please suggest some resources for developing a plugin for CLion?

Please help me with these questions.

Thank you.

Here is a web-help article about developing plugins for CLion: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/clion/2019.1/develop-plugins-for-clion.html.

Your plugin should specify which product or products it will be compatible with (all IntelliJ-based IDEs, CLion only, or some subset). You can do that by declaring module dependencies with the <depends> tag in plugin.xml (see Plugin Compatibility with IntelliJ Products).
