Plugins rating

We use a Bayesian Rating to calculate the rating displayed for each JetBrains Marketplace plugin and within the product. The precise formula we are using is:

bayesianRating = (sum(userRatings) + 2 * meanVote) / (count(userRatings) + 2)

meanVote is an average vote of all plugins on JetBrains Marketplace.

It may be confusing that the plugin rating is not 5, while all votes are five stars. However, we use the Bayesian rating to avoid the situation when the plugin with a few 5-star votes is rated higher than the plugins with many diverse votes (not all of them are five stars.)
