Illuminated Cloud plugin not showing up in Browse Repositories in RubyMine

Issue #375 wontfix
David Esposito created an issue

Perhaps my simplistic understanding of how the IntelliJ family of products is related is at fault here .. but I'd expect to be able to install the IlluminatedCloud plugin into RubyMine given that it's got the same Browse Repositories UI as IntelliJ Community Edition

Is there a reason that I can't save myself yet-another-IDE-installation here and just use RubyMine to host the IlluminatedCloud plugin?

    David, unfortunately right now Illuminated Cloud will only install into IntelliJ IDEA. It uses some aspects of the plugin API that aren't available in other JetBrains IDEs such as WebStorm, PyCharm, RubyMine, etc. When I submit the plugin into the repository, it automatically detects these usages and only makes the plugin available where appropriate.

    Resolving this as won't fix for now not because I don't want to fix it, but because the gaps in the plugin SDK in other IDEs makes it difficult/impossible to do so.

    Thanks for the quick response .. and it sheds some light on why some other plugins probably aren't available in RubyMine either

    No problem. There are a TON of people who would love to see IC work in WebStorm for its low price point and included rich HTML5 editor. I've spoken with JetBrains a few times, but so far we haven't been able to come up with a workable solution. Many of the "lesser" (their term, not mine) IDEs are missing key things like the module concept, code coverage, project/module creation wizards, etc., that are used heavily by IC. Trying to make IC work well with those IDEs while still providing the full feature set in IntelliJ IDEA is very difficult.

    Yeah, we're using RubyMine to work on the React components of our app since it has the JSX plugin .. then we use IntelliJ Community to save up any Apex and VF changes via Illuminated Cloud

    It's not a horrible situation and in some ways, it's better because it puts your mind in a different mode (single quotes instead of double!) .. but I figured I had to ask

    This is obviously a very old enhancement request and opened in the context of Illuminated Cloud 1, but I thought I'd mentioned that starting with the next build of IC2, PhpStorm, PyCharm, and RubyMine will all be supported in a first-class manner. I'm using issue #1138 to track this work actively.
