What’s new for Plugin DevKit in IDEA 14
IntelliJ IDEA 14 comes with a number of nice little additions and improvements for plugin authors.
View→Quick Documentation is now available for extension points:
Test data navigation
Previously only available in Test Assistant plugin (required IDE built from sources), support for @TestDataPath and @TestDataFile has been merged into Plugin DevKit.
This allows smart navigation between plugin tests and their corresponding test data files.
Last but not least, open related test data file(s) as well from failing tests right from jUnit toolwindow:
Navigate→Related Symbol now supports navigation from ExtensionPointName declaration in code to its <extensionPoint> definition in plugin.xml.
For inspections and intentions, open description.html respectively before/after-file:
The following inspections have been added:
- Use Couple instead of Pair
- Use VirtualFile.equals
- Postfix template Description Checker
“Component/Action not registered” inspection now correctly takes existing registration in optional plugin descriptors into account. Also some issues with extension point registration quickfixes have been resolved.
Please stay tuned for more improvements and let us know in Plugin Development forum about your wishes.
