Creating Your First Plugin
This documentation section will help you get started with developing plugins for the IntelliJ Platform. You can use either IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition or IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate as your IDE. Both include the complete set of plugin development tools. To become more familiar with IntelliJ IDEA, please refer to the IntelliJ IDEA Web Help.
There are two possible workflows for building IntelliJ IDEA plugins. The recommended workflow for new projects is to use Gradle. For existing projects, the old workflow using Plugin DevKit is still supported.
