With more than 4,000 available plugins, the Plugins Repository is able to deliver a variety of third-party plugins that can extend your JetBrains product on demand. There are plugins to bring you everything from additional languages and new technology support to cloud integrations, to themes, learning shortcuts, and even a Nyan Cat progress bar. Plugins for pretty much all the JetBrains tools including, but not limited to, all the IntelliJ–based IDEs, TeamCity, and .NET tools.
Today we want to introduce to you the brand-new JetBrains Marketplace platform, a new evolutionary step for the Plugins Repository. This new platform provides an opportunity for third-party plugin developers to sell and license their plugins using an out-of-the-box solution provided by JetBrains. With this platform addition, more developers will be able to dedicate more of their “official working time” to plugin development on a longer-term basis, as sometimes it can be challenging to invest and dedicate so much of their time to when it doesn’t help towards paying the bills.
Third-party plugin developers won’t need to invest their time into their own licensing solutions and creating the sales workflows themselves anymore. What this means for you, as plugin users, is that you can enjoy even more feature-full high-quality plugins to help you develop with pleasure.
The currently available plugins are not going anywhere. It is just that over the years, we’ve seen more and more companies and individual developers choose the IntelliJ Platform and other JetBrains tools as the platform they prefer to build their own developer productivity tools for, including commercial ones. With the JetBrains Marketplace, we’d like for plugin developers to be able to focus on developing their plugins instead of using their time to implement custom license management solutions and building distribution channels. As a part of the marketplace solution, we are providing an out-of-the-box software licensing solution, billing and sales infrastructure, and marketing and sales support.
As a plugin user, you can take advantage of the following benefits:
- Additional functionality thanks to paid plugins from third-party developers.
- Simple plugin installation, payment, sign-up, and management via JetBrains Account.
- Easy-to-use licenses using your JetBrains Account, including management of all subscriptions/licenses with the on-premises license server.
- Co-terming of licenses with JetBrains product licenses (optional).
- Various discounts (e.g. volume), special licenses (User Group, Opensource, etc.), and other programs supported by JetBrains (available soon.)
- Security and privacy protection: no need to provide credit card information or any other data to an external entity when purchasing a plugin.
Right now the new third-party plugins are only available for our IntelliJ-based IDEs, but we are planning to extend the support to other tools too, so please stay tuned!
