2022.1 Dependent Plugins Calculations Are Broken

Answered

Several plugins try to disable a ton of others when you disable them.

The easiest example is to disable the Plugin DevKit.

It tries to disable Database Tools and SQL, FreeMarker, Hibernate, all Jakarta EE and a bunch of others I can't be bothered to list.

This happens with several other bundled plugins such as Ant and Maven and others.

Many plugins have dependencies on other plugins. For example, Gradle plugin has a dependency on Groovy plugin because of the build.gradle files support, etc. This is why it is normal that disabling one plugin can lead to other plugins tat depend on it also to be disabled.

But I cannot reproduce it. Disabling DevKit does not disable other plugins. Could you please file an issue at https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/IDEA with idea.log attached after reproducing this. Thank you.

Try disabling the bundled Markdown plugin and installing Markdown Editor plugin.

You get the error "Cannot Save Settings: Unable to apply changes: plugin "Markdown" won't be able to load."

I deliberately disabled it so why would I get an error about it not loading?
