Within the last two days I wrote a new plugin, which allows you to jump faster between files of GWT services.
Using IDEAs “Related symbols” action you can jump from the async method in the interface to its implementation and vice-versa – all based on filename conventions and it is nice example of a GotoRelatedProvider.
Here you jump between files:
Here you jump between methods of files:
This plugin requires the community edition of IntelliJ IDEA.
Try the Run Configuration For External Tools-plugin.
The idea of an empty run configuration type is also provided by Batch Scripts Support– or BashSupport-plugin. So if you already use one of the bash plugins, you do not need my plugin.
In legacy projects sometimes a Java class (with the same fully qualified name) exists in several projects. If you combine these projects, you will never know, which class is used at runtime. It is like Maven dependency hell.
So I wrote a plugin to find out duplicated classes in the classpath. Get it here https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugin/9663-find-duplicates-inspection, but do not expect much support from me (because it is only a proof-of-concept).
Some months ago I created a small useful NetBeans plugin, which allows to you to save time when pasting code samples from online tutorials. Today I used it again and I still find it very useful in this specific context. And it saves you time. That is why I want to report about it.
What is the feature? You can copy the Java source code of whole classes from a tutorial and paste it via
Menu|Edit|Paste to new file. Either the package declaration of the Java class is taken in account or the Java class is placed in the correct package. This depends on the selected node and it is documented included screencasts at https://github.com/markiewb/nb-paste-to-new-file.
That sounds familiar? Yes, this feature already exists natively in Eclipse JDT and Intellij IDEA.
Give it a try, when using NetBeans! Happy coding.
BTW: I am still looking for maintainers for my plugins! Because of time issues, I will not bugfix nor implement features anymore. Support your favorite IDE and by contribution to your favorite plugin!
At https://github.com/markiewb/idea-create-from-template-plugin you will find an IDEA plugin, which shows you some APIs in action:
- How to add an action to the context menu
- How to create a context sensitive action. The action is only activated for Maven-based module nodes.
- How to add an option panel – see
projectConfigurable in the
- How to register and use a project based settings service. See
projectService in the
- How to register a file template. See
Do you use a Nightly-/Dev-Build of NetBeans or even a release candidate of 8.2 within the NetCAT-program and you are missing some of your favorite plugins?
First there is no plugin center for Dev-Builds. Also most plugins from the 8.1 plugin center are not verified for the new 8.2 build yet – including my plugins.
Nevertheless in the meantime you can still use the plugins and give the plugin authors feedback of the compatiblity to 8.2. Some plugins won’t work, because of using non-public API, but that is the point to find out!
How to do that?
Tools|Plugins|Settings add the plugin center URL for 8.1  and then at
Tools|Plugins|Available Plugins click at “
Check for Newest”
