How to suppress warning messages in the console when running a plugin as command line?


This is a question about running an IntelliJ plugin as a command line (i.e., headless).

I have implemented an ApplicationStarter class, and in my main method, I am printing a Hello World text.

In my build.gradle.kts file I have a custom task that calls the ApplicationStarter class

To run the plugin as CLI, I created a .sh file that calls the custom gradle task. 

Running the .sh file executes the code in my ApplicationStarter class, and the Hello World text is printed in the console/command line. However, there are some system-generated warnings also printed in the console. My question is, how can I suppress these warnings?

In the above output, how can I suppress the printing of the following messages:

  • Cannot resolve runtime with ideDir....
  • WARN - llij.ide.plugins.PluginManager - id....
  • WARN - l.NotificationGroupManagerImpl...


The following is the code in my .sh file:

#!/usr/bin/env bash

if [ $# -ne "2" ]; then
echo "usage: generate-dataset <path to project> <path to output folder>"
exit 1

DIR="$( cd "$( dirname "${BASH_SOURCE[0]}" )" >/dev/null && pwd )"
if uname -s | grep -iq cygwin ; then
DIR=$(cygpath -w "$DIR")
PWD=$(cygpath -w "$PWD")

"$DIR/gradlew" --console=plain -p "$DIR" MyCustomCli -Pinput="$1" -Poutput="$2"

Are you using latest gradle-intellij-plugin 1.4.0? There's unfortunately nothing you can do about the WARN entries AFAIU.
