How to use the IDEA-Plugin?

Hi,

what are the features of the IDEA-Integration? What can be used and what are the objectives of the plugin? I can only see the "connected-icon" at the bottom of MPS... but don't know how to use it...

Hello, Mirko,

IDEA plugin was created in order to support development of MPS. End users are advised not to use it. You can easily develop languages without resorting to its usage.

OK, thanks

but what will the plugin do in the future? Somewhere i read something like "code will be generated as you type in MPS". Is there any official statement about that?

Mirko,

Actually our plugin provides navigation between code in IDEA and code in MPS. Also it allows to compile source generated by MPS in IDEA. Now it's possible to live without these features, since the development can be completely done in MPS.

BTW, we do not provide code generation as you type. You have to explicitly generate code if you want to do so.

Regards,

Konstantin

I'm just leaving this here so others can find this via Google.

> "Not connected to IDEA. Click to connect" 

>  "Connecting to IDEA..."

These tooltips appear in the lower right corner of the MPS window. 

They are from the extension "Idea Integration for MPS" with the description "Connects MPS to IDEA"

(info from: MPS 2018.1)
