[Webinar Recording] Deconstructing Clippy – Common Issues for an Uncommon Extension
The recording of our April 16th webinar with Matt Ellis, Deconstructing Clippy – Common Issues for an Uncommon Extension, is now available on JetBrains YouTube Channel.
This webinar takes a deep dive into Clippy’s implementation. We don’t look at the standard extension points (it doesn’t use any!), instead we look at common platform issues faced by all plugins, such as versioning, components, lifetime management and threading. We also look at some of the more interesting issues thrown up by trying to add a cartoon character to a productivity tool.
Clippy for ReSharper is a good April Fools’ day joke made better by the fact that it’s a real, fully functioning extension – replacing the Alt+Enter menus as well as integrating with navigation and refactoring. It’s also a great demonstration of the varied and often surprising ways you can extend ReSharper.
You can learn more about ReSharper extensions in our video, Build Your Own Extension in ReSharper 8.
