IDE performance, selective start profiles

Answered

I am wondering about the number of plugins being loaded into IDEA - can it slow down the IDE a lot with plenty of plugins loaded?

If so, is it possible to start IDEA with selective profiles, eg: I'd have one for java backend (Spring, etc.), other for C++/Rust, and yet another eg. for Android / Flutter. With multiple projects in different windows.

Or I'm just spitting nonsense?

Thanks!

Hello,

Yes, disabling unnecessary plugins may positively affect the IDE performance, but there is currently no way to customize the list of plugins separately for each project. Please follow https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-205289, for updates.
