Bindows Tools - New plugin for IntelliJ IDEA 90
Ran posted in Developing in Bindows on October 27th, 2009
As many of you might already know we have a plugin out there called ”Bindows Plugin”, that help with development of Bindows applications in IntelliJ IDEA. JetBrains changed a number of things in IntelliJ IDEA 8 which broke our plugin. To be honest, we haven’t had the time to fix it and soon IntelliJ IDEA 9 will be released with even more changes introduced. Most notably, JetBrains dropped its support for internal browser windows and we used several of those in the Bindows Plugin.
So we built a new plugin from scratch. It’s called Bindows Tools and you install it normally from the plugin manager inside IntelliJ IDEA. It is a facet that you attach to your project module and includes features such as:
- live templates
- code completion for Bindows xml
- ADF launcher
- support for switching between multiple Bindows distributions (or toolkits as we call them now)
- customizable html launcher files also allows for launching InfiView applications
- cross platform support (Windows, Mac and Linux)
- multiple browsers support
To try the plugin, download IntelliJ IDEA v9 ultimate (ideaIU-90.xxx).
