This is a plugin for writing plugins at runtime (i.e. without IDE restarts).
It uses Groovy as main language and has experimental support for Scala and Clojure.

To get started:
  • open "Plugins" tool window
  • select one of the plugin entries in the panel (entries are folders, and "plugin.groovy" are startup scripts for plugins)
  • click "Run" icon to execute plugin (or use keyboard shortcut "alt+C, alt+E" or "ctrl+shift+L")
If the above worked fine:
  • modify "plugin.groovy" and rerun plugin to see results
  • add built-in plugin examples and experiment with them
  • for more details see readme on GitHub
If something doesn't work:
(On OSX you might need workaround to use alt+... shortcuts, please see this wiki page .)

May be PluginScript or ScriptPlugin? Yes, it's possible to change just name and leave plugin id as it is. I think I tried this with intellijeval but iirc id was still displayed somewhere.

What about LiveScript, or HotScript? Also you could keep the pluginId same :)

That's true :) What name would you use? (it's a bit difficult to rename because it means creating new plugin but I might do it anyway sometime later)

Is it only me, or is the name of the plugin too much confusingly similar to LiveEdit? :)
