Is it possible to make MPS run inside my regular IDEA/IntelliJ (8)?

What I would like to do is generate just a bit of my java code with MPS (to start with ;-)) inside an existing IDEA project. I do not like to run two IDE's (which are somehow remarkable similar ;-)) side by side. It seems that the early versions of MPS where plugins to IDEA. Later on a stripped down IDEA was used as the basis for MPS. Now, I guess, I am asking if MPS is also installable as a plugin to IDEA again. Correct me if wrongly deduced.

Hello, Tom.

MPS has never been a plugin for IDEA but it's based on IntelliJ IDEA platform. That's why it looks so similar to IDEA. We have plans for creating MPS plugin for IDEA so you will be able to do what you want from the same IDE but it won't be available in 1.0.



Hi Konstantin,

Thanks for the clarification. I am eagerly awaiting the plugin.
