Open Alternate File: i.e. jump from source to test file, maven resource, html file, properties file, etc... configured using regular expressions.

Usage: Just use [ALT][8] to popup all matching files (Mac OS: [CMD][ALT][8]).

Thanks to LeapingFrogs.com for the original plugin.

Android Color Manager

The plugin that manages Android colors. This plugin create a tool windows.

Open "Color Manager" tool window. You will see all colors listed


Drag and Drop

From v1.1.0, this plugin support drag and drop feature.

  • Select a file where you want to drop
  • Drag the color panel
  • Drop where you want to copy the color name/tag

If the selected file is not xml file, then the drop text format is R.color.color_name


If the selected file is xml, then the drop text format is @color/color_name


At this moment, there is no way to detect drop target file's type. So, if you select a xml file and drop text to a Java file, this plugin pastes @color/color_name not R.color.color_name


Right click a color listed on the tool window


Click "Copy R.color.whatever_color_name" or "Copy @color/whatever_color_name"

You can also copy color name ("R.color.whatever_color_name" style) by cmd+c (or ctrl+c) after selecting the color panel

Move to the color definition

Same as Copy. Right click and click "Go to R.color.whatever_color_name"

Or just double click an item

Edit the color code

Click "Edit R.color.whatever_color_name" and choose new color


Delete a color

Same as Copy and move. Right click and click "Delete R.color.whatever_color_name"

It will show confirmation dialog before deleting the color tag.


Just start typing after focusing tool window


Show all colors

As default, this plugin filter library's color because there are a lot.


You can un-filter those by clicking "Filter" icon (It takes a few second to show all colors)


Sort by color name

You can sort by color name by clicking sort icon



Android Strings Search Plugin

Android Studio & IntelliJ Plugin for strings.xml. This plugin makes easier to search text in strings resources.


File tree for activity, fragment in Android Studio.


Advanced navigation tool with multiple project trees support.
Key features
  • Multiple Project Views
  • Grouping elements without changing the structure of code
  • Custom sorting schemes
  • Code secluding (hiding or muting outer code)
  • Easy switching between projects
For more information see Armory Features page


Allows to easily browse next/previous word at caret and highlight other appearances of selected word.

Usage: Browse with CTRL-ALT-UP, CTRL-ALT-DOWN (note: on default-keymap this shortcut is also for next/previous occurrence).


Quickly jump to any single character in the active document.

Class Names in Comments

Allows you to go to the declaration of classes whose names are inside comments. This is useful for those of us unfortunate enough to still write JDK 1.4 code (no generics). I usually do that when writing frameworks. To increase code readability I usually write code like this: Map/*<Long id, PersistentObject>*/ persistentObjects. Having the ability to also navigate to PersistentObject in this case is a very nice feature for me. This already works in Eclipse, so I thought IntelliJ users would also like it.

Code Outline

Shows a zoomed out "outline" of your code while you're editing it.


Graphic display of elements and their relations

Frame Switcher

By meo
Plugin for more convenient switching between projects/frames/windows than is alt-tab or Window menu.
  • Switch or reopen a project - ALT + F2 (repeat for selecting a next item)
    • - Shift+Enter - reopen a project in the current window
    • - Ctrl+Enter - reopen a project in a new window
    • - Delete - removes a recent project from the history
  • Close projects - CTRL + ALT + F2

Or set your own shortcut in Settings | Keymap.

See File | Settings | Other Settings | FrameSwitcher for options like using mnemonics instead of speed search, max recent projects size and other...

(Big thanks to Eugene Mustaphin for contributions.)

Go To Project

Enables opening project windows with speed search


The plugin adds menu actions allowing you to go to a specific tab. You can of course assign keyboard shortcuts the individual actions and for example achieve the behavior known from other editors/IDEs where you can switch between tabs with alt+<num>.

To prevent any conflicts, the plugin doesn't assign any shortcuts by itself, you need to do it manually in the Keymap (section Main menu -> Window -> Editor Tabs -> Go To Tabs).


By kadi2
Shows back and forward locations lists for navigation like in web browsers


Support for hyper link highlighting in IDEA editors (Ctrl+Mouse) with mouse click to open (Ctrl+Click).


Preview project images as an icon in your project explorer. Helpful if you have a lot of icons in your project, IconViewer gives you a nice preview icon.
Bigger images are scaled to 16x16, supported are:
  • *.gif
  • *.png
  • *.bmp
  • *.jpg
  • *.jpeg
  • *.wbmp

Identifier Highlighter Reloaded

Gives you one-stroke way to navigate to next/previous identifier occurrence.
Use Shift+Alt+Up and Shift+Alt+Down (or assign your own shortcuts in Keymap) to navigate up and down to each identifier occurrence.
Make sure that these shortcuts are not mapped to e.g. "Move Line Up" and "Move Line Down" in Keymap.
Can be used with or without "Highlight usages of element at caret" enabled.
Source available at http://github.com/olegych/ih-reloaded.


Embedded Web Browser


Lysosome allows you to move the text cursor to the start or end of a selection using the left and right cursor keys, like in many other common text editors. It also provides info about the current selection in the status bar.


Marks your files with counts from TODOs and DOITs. Makes your regions and GHERKIN pretty.


Enables [Ctrl-B] in text files and java comments, to jump to files/classes under the cursor.
Anchors are recognized (ex: ../bug.txt#bug001-001)
Super-Anchors add persistent highlighting (ex: ../bug.txt##bug001-001)


Enhances the project view with module libraries. Each module node in the tree now has a separate listing of its modules. The node "External libraries" is enhanced with the individual modules and their nodes. Please keep in mind that this is a bad hack to get back the old behaviour of IDEA 8.x. It might not work at all in your installation of IntelliJ.


Highlight identifiers with custom colors (like "Highlight Usages in File").

You can customize your highlight text style, it's helpful when reading source code.

A version of Camel Humps that fits my style and works in latest IDEA. Stops at every possible "hump" - very much like how the old Metrowerks CodeWarrior did it.


A plugin that eases the navigation through the elements of a project and the execution of actions on those elements.

Please visit the home page of this plugin for a walkthrough that shows how the plugin works.

Navigate From Literal

Enables navigation from any string literal or xml attribute value or xml text to a file by name. I.e. Ctrl+B/Ctrl+Click at literal "myFile.txt" will try to navigate to a file named "myFile.txt", that is located in any project directory. For a literal like "some/path/to/file.txt" it will omit directories and try to resolve "file.txt" in all project directories. Back references (i.e. from files to literals) are ignored, this is by design.

Navigate to URL

Enables navigation from any matching string literal or xml attribute value or xml element text to a url defined by url rules.
This, for instance, makes a string anywhere in the code like "GD-123", when clicked, navigate to https://mysite.atlassian.net/browse/GD-123

To create url rules, create a file called navigate-url-plugin.properties at the root of any module.

Example "navigate-url-plugin.properties" file contents :

The source code uses code from the existing plugin: ishchenko/idea-navigate-from-literal.

TODO: Support the traditional configuration UI, if requested by plugin users. The author's use case is for a team where using the normal shared intellij plugin configuration isn't an option. Using a project config file instead provides the shared config automatically for all team members.

Offline Module

Disable or enable modules in project without deleting

Open Commit On GitHub

This plugin add an editor popup menu. The menu opens GitHub page that the selected line is added.

Open current Activity

An action to open the class corresponding to the currently shown Activity on the attached Android device or emulator.

This action can be found under Navigate / Current Activity.

The default keyboard shortcut is Ctrl F10 (PC), ⌘F10 (Mac).



Open in splitted tab

Inspired by the assistant-view in Xcode. Opens the declaration / implementation of the current selected symbol within a vertically splitted tab.

If there already is an splitted tab, it will use this. If not, it will open a new one. There are two actions available:

  • "Open in splitted tab": Mimics the behaviour of Xcode and opens the file always in the same tab.
  • "Open in splitted (new) tab": Always opens the file in a new tab.
The actions have no shortcuts assigned by default and only accessible by the "GoTo"-menu.

Open Includes

Allow Ctrl-Click navigation in JSP files for other include tags (dsp, cq)


QuickJump allows you to quickly navigate the cursor to any position visible in the editor. Simply hit "ctrl+;" then start typing. Once options appear, hit Enter or the number key corresponding to the position where you want the cursor to move.
ctrl+; Jump Only
ctrl+shift+; Jump and Select
ctrl+alt+; Jump and Autocomplete

When Selecting Enter or #
ctrl+# New line after
ctrl+shift+# New line before
alt+# Space after
ctrl+alt+# Space Before

Railways for IDEA

Railways plugin makes navigation between Ruby On Rails route actions much quicker.
This is a separate release of RubyMine Railways plugin that is compatible only with IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate with Ruby plugin installed.
  • Displays routes of Ruby On Rails application/engine in a separate "Routes" panel
  • Adds quick navigation to action implementation from "Routes" panel or "Go to route action" popup available in code editor (invoked by **Ctrl + Shift + G**)
  • Provides quick routes filtering by route path, controller/action or route name

Please feel free to report a bug or a suggestion on GitHub plugin page.

Remote call

IntelliJ IDEA plugin for remote call some procedures. At the moment it can open the files on http GET-request to localhost:8091 with "message" parameter looking like "FileName.java:89" or "any/path/FileName.java:89". In this case plugin will try to find the most appropriate file basing on the specified path in opened projects and navigate to it. By default sending requests is permitted from localhost only. You can change it in Settings | Remote Call. Listening port also can be configured in Settings.

Request mapper

Plugin for quick navigation to url mapping declaration.
Shortcut: Shift + Ctrl + Back slash
Supported annotations:
  • Spring:
    • @RequestMapping
    • @GetMapping
    • @PostMapping
    • @PutMapping
    • @PatchMapping
    • @DeleteMapping
  • JAX-RS:
    • @GET
    • @POST
    • @PUT
    • @DELETE
    • @HEAD

browsing directories and files inside and outside of the current project for opening files in IDEA


Collection of simple utilities for IDEA.
Defines actions: Next True Error (Alt+F2), Previous True Error (Alt+Shift+F2),
Next Todo (Ctrl+Shift+F2), Previous Todo (Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F2),
Hide All Bottom Windows (Alt+F12)

Switch Structure

Displays a label list for a switch statement enclosing the caret, jumps to source on Enter.


By jesi

Awesome replacement for IDEA's 'Show directory in editor tabs for non-unique filenames'. If you have same named files in different directories this plugin will allow you to have directory names added to tab labels. It only shows path differences so if you have "blog/controllers/index" and "news/controllers/index" it will add either [blog] or [news]. In setting tab 'Tabdir' you can control how prefixes will be formatted.

Per-project configuration allow specify different formatting rules for each directory in project. To enable per-project configuration enable "Use per project configuration" checkbox(see screenshot №3) and reopen settings window(need close with Ok or Apply buttons). After this you will find 'Tabdir' configuration in project section(screenshot №4) in which different configurations can be specified.

Note: that you should turn off IDE Settings → Editor tabs → Show directory in editor tabs for non-unique filenames.


Shows file folder name in the tab if there are several files in the project with this name. It's useful for Django projects to distinguish files from different applications.


Open files/tabs switcher to quickly switch between tabs with less keystrokes than Recent Files. Open files are selected from a list in most recently used order, similarly to Alt+Tab in Windows or Ctrl-Tab in Opera. By default the action is mapped to Alt+A, but another popular assignment is CMD+E.

Thanks to Timur Zambalayev for the original plugin, Martin Fuhrer for a major contribution in the form of a rewrite and Mark Scott for patching a bug. Follow further development of this plugin on GitHub or follow me on twitter for announcements and other things.


Open files quickly by organizing them in seperate lists. The lists are defined by going to [Settings|TabSwitcher Extreme] and specifying regex patters for their (full) filenames, e.g.

.*xml for files ending with .xml
.*Activity_.* for files with "Activity_" in their name

(One list per line)

If any file is not matched by any of the regex patterns, a new list named "Other" is created, where it is then placed.

Initially the plugin binds under alt-A, but one might bind it under ctrl-tab as this is where the standard switcher is.
Usage: Hold alt, press A to activate the plugin. Keep holding alt while moving the selection around using arrow keys and pageup and pagedown.

Obviously, the plugin needs work, but it's functional. Plugin on github

Thanks to Bas Leijdekkers for the original plugin (github) this one is based off of.

Tasks Navigation

Provides navigation to tasks from comments. Quite simple feature, just searches for issue IDs.

Provides support for task id injection (using IntelliLang plugin) into any string, etc.
Injection allows to navigate to web (open task/issue in browser)
Also code completion for such injection elements provided. For more information about injections, see related documentation

Dependency on IntelliLang is optional, but highly recommended to install, since it provides nice features.

Transliterate Umlauts

This plugin is for projects which use German for naming their classes, symbols, and files but restrict the character set used for naming to ASCII. E.g. they would have classes like "Aenderungsauftrag" instead of "Änderungsauftrag". Finding something in such an environment becomes a hassle once the use of native characters is allowed, because now you may encounter both spellings and never know, if you just missed a class when searching by one spelling or the other.

This is where this plugin steps in. It will produce hits for both spellings, i.e. if the users entered "Änd" in the "navigate to class" field (CTRL+N), IDEA will produce both "Aenderungsauftrag" and "Änderungsauftrag". It also works vice versa with the restriction that this way around the translation is not unique, e.g. searching for "Kaesefondue" would not see the actual class "Käsefondue" because the plugin overdid its job.


This plugin enables you to create and manage named groups of files, or "workspaces", within a project. You can bind a name to a set of one or more files and then open/close that set of files as a group. You can create as many workspaces as you want and arrange them in the Workspaces tool window in any order you like.


The XFiles plugin offers a configurable, dynamic mechanism for defining working sets of files and allowing navigation between files selected by a working set. Working sets may be filtered using any or all of the following criteria:

  • File path names matching specified patterns (pathname globs)
  • File attributes (open files, source files, test files, ignored files)
  • File status according to the underlying VCS (added, changed, unchanged, unknown, etc.)
  • File type (java files, text files, xml files, properties files, etc.)
  • The VCS the file is registered with (CVS, SVN, P4, etc.)
  • The project module the file exists in

The resulting working set's files are is displayed in a tool window for navigation and operation.


Allows navigation from within

  • Ant files
  • Xpress files (Programming language of the Sun Identity Manager/Oracle Waveset)
  • OIM xml files (Export/import format of Oracle Identity Manager)
  • Svg files
  • Xsl files

to related xml or java files.
