Intellij IDEA "create from template" plugin

This plugin is the draft for an inhouse-plugin for our company to generate application specific rebel.xml files.

It adds an actions to several context menus to create a rebel.xml file based on a velocity template.

It shows the usage some IDEA APIs:

  • How to add an action to the context menu of
    1. Module in "Project" window via <add-to-group group-id="ProjectViewPopupMenu"
    2. Maven Module in "Maven Projects" window via <add-to-group group-id="Maven.NavigatorProjectMenu"
    3. Files/Changelists in "Local Changes" window via <add-to-group group-id="ChangesViewPopupMenu"
  • How to create a context sensitive action. The action is only activated for Maven-based module nodes. It uses com.intellij.openapi.actionSystem.DataContext and com.intellij.openapi.module.ModuleUtil
  • How to add an project specific option panel including "for current project" indicator - see projectConfigurable in the plugin.xml
  • How to register and use a project based settings service. See projectService in the plugin.xml
  • How to register a file template. See fileTemplateGroup in plugin.xml and resources/fileTemplates.j2ee


  1.3: Add action to context menu of files/changelists in "Local Changes" window
  1.2: Add action to context menu of Maven modules in "Maven Projects" window (+ Refactor to use VIRTUAL_FILE_ARRAY to get com.intellij.openapi.module.Module)
  1.1: Make settings per project type and enable the "for current project" indicator in the settings
