Update nightlies daily

Posted on by Pavel Fatin

Generally, we recommend using nightly builds of Scala plugin to stay up to date in cutting-edge features and bug-fixes. Most nightlies are rather stable and may often work even better than “officially stable” releases.

Although we can always download the latest nightly build and update Scala plugin by-hand, there is now a better way to get recent versions.

Just add “http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/plugins/scala-nightly.xml”
into Settings / Updates / Plugin Hosts:

After that, you can receive notifications on new plugin nightlies:

Update with pleasure 🙂

    This is awesome. I have been visiting the plugin page and manually updating on every build. Just as Lachlan said, it will save me time 🙂

    Thank you very much!

    Very awesome!

    I do have one request. Can you avoid publishing a nightly build if there have not been any changes that day? The Scala git repo shows no changes in the past five days, but there’s been a nightly build every day.

    That would help avoid needless updates and restarts.

    Thanks again!
