IntelliJ Platform Plugin SDK Help

AppCode Plugin Development

Plugin projects targeting AppCode can be developed using IntelliJ IDEA with the Gradle IntelliJ Plugin.

Configuring Plugin Projects Targeting AppCode

The Gradle configuration of AppCode plugin projects uses neither Product-Specific nor IntelliJ IDEA Attributes. Instead, configure AppCode plugin projects to use the intellij.localPath attribute.

The table below summarizes the Gradle IntelliJ Plugin attributes to set in the plugin project's Gradle build script. Click on an entry in the table's Attribute column to go to the documentation about that attribute.

gradle-intellij-plugin Attribute

Attribute Value

intellij.localPath

Path to locally installed target version of AppCode. For example, for macOS:
/Users/$USERNAME$/Library/Application Support/JetBrains/Toolbox/apps/AppCode/ch-0/193.5662.55/AppCode.app/Contents.

runIde.ideDir

Path to locally installed target version of AppCode. For example, for macOS:
/Users/$USERNAME$/Library/Application Support/JetBrains/Toolbox/apps/AppCode/ch-0/193.5662.55/AppCode.app/Contents.

The dependency on the AppCode APIs must be declared in the plugin.xml file. As described in Modules Specific to Functionality table, the <depends> tags must declare com.intellij.modules.appcode module dependency, or com.intellij.appcode plugin dependency for plugins targeting only versions 2020.3+.

Available AppCode APIs

Use the Exploring APIs as a Consumer process to identify the libraries in AppCode. Test your plugin with any version of AppCode you wish to support.
