Welcome to the Non-Dairy Soy plugin!

Build Status

This document is subject to change, particularly at any point it is deemed necessary to add or revise something.

Current status

The plugin development has stopped. There is a plugin for closure templates that is officially supported by Google now - bamboo soy. It has already covered most of non-dairy soy plugin features and it will become better over time. Give it a try.

Project Goals

  • Enhance the usability and maintainability of soy files
  • Leverage the most powerful features of IntelliJ IDEA to promote a superior developer experience


./gradlew buildPlugin


./gradlew runIdea


Why am I seeing errors in IntelliJ?

Well, considering the complexity of parsing Closure templates, and this project does not use the closure compiler to perform parsing, it is entirely likely that I missed something.

First, be sure you are running the latest version of the plugin. I deliberately prioritize fixing parser errors above all other bugs and feature improvements. My coworkers use the plugin daily and I consider myself accountable if they loose productivity on account of the plugin.

If you find that your bug is genuine, please report it at Non_Dairy issue page and I'll get to it as soon as I can.

Please include:

  • A description of the problem
  • A stack trace (if available) or a screen shot
  • Steps to reproduce the error
  • A sample source file if possible

Can you add such-and-such feature?

There is a fairly exhaustive list of things I'd like the plugin to do at some point, but I'm one guy with a full-time job and a family. "We get there, when we get there."

The big list is on GitHub. Additional ideas are welcome. Prioritization is tracked on little yellow sticky notes and entirely subject to available time, feasibility, ROI, and public demand.

Why a Plugin for Closure Templates?

Simply put, our team started using Closure Templates in our project because they are nifty. As an avid IntelliJ IDEA user in an IntelliJ IDEA shop, I was disappointed there wasn't one already... so I built one.
