Yes, I know it is bad news and I am sorry about it. |
We went for a deep native integration with IDEA, but unfortunately they break us on a regular basis (I don't blame them, as we also use internal APIs especially in the tests).
It turned out to require relatively high effort and very few contributors willing to work on it. Still there are some contributors and I am all open for more contributions in this area, of course!
Personally, I think a more practical solution would be LSP support in IDEA, which would be not as native and deep but much less maintenance. (please vote here, if you agree: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEABKL-7409)
Building an Xtext language for idea should work, though, and in case there are compatibility issues it should be possible to fix them through dependency injection.
But we haven't updated the plugins in the jetbrains repo, yet.
