This is a plugin for IntelliJ IDEs to write plugins at runtime without having to restart IDE. It uses Groovy as main scripting 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, feel free to report an issue.
(To use alt+... shortcuts on OSX with JDK8 you might need to edit keyboard layout, please see this wiki page.)
