AppCode Plugin Development

Introduction

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 build.gradle file. Click on an entry in the table's Attribute column to go to the documentation about that attribute.

gradle-intellij-plugin AttributeAttribute Value
intellij.localPathPath to locally installed target version of AppCode. For example, for macOS:
/Users/<user name>/Library/Application Support/JetBrains/Toolbox/apps/AppCode/ch-0/193.5662.55/AppCode.app/Contents.
runIde.ideDirectoryPath to locally installed target version of AppCode. For example, for macOS:
/Users/<user name>/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.

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.
