Plugin development: making plugins compatible with WebIDE


Detailed explanations on how to make IntelliJ Platform plugins for WebIDE and RubyMine are now available.

Summary: for a properly built IDEA 9.0 plugin only appropriate descriptor is required, but it’s always great to check that you are using only java support independent API by executing recompiling against WI or RM installation.

Existing IntelliJ IDEA version control, editor, and and many other categories of plugins should be compatible right after rebuilding against 9.0 API and declaring all dependencies in plugin descriptor properly.

Uploading compatible plugin to plugin repository will automatically make it available for WebIDE and RubyMine, both online and within IDE user interface.
