Developing / Deploying Wordpress Plugins with PHPStorm


I'm trying to start local developing of Wordpress Plugins with PHPStorm on Windows.

I'm using a local XAMPP Stack and set up up PHPStorm like it is recommended in several tutorials. Everything is working properly.

The Wordpress installation lives in the Apache htdocs folder: C:\xampp\htdocs\WP-customer\
The plugin is located in one of my project folders: C:\users\whatever\Proejct\PluginX\

My question is: Is there a integrated/recommended way to automatically deploy my plugin to the Wordpress plugins folder or is it intended to somehow copy the plugin to the Wordpress dir somehow via a script? 

Thank you!
