JetBrains Marketplace is a home for plugins for the full range of IntelliJ-based IDEs, plugins for .NET, and team tools: TeamCity, Space, and YouTrack.
As JetBrains products are inherently extensible, we’ve been using a dedicated Plugin Repository for IntelliJ-based IDEs and TeamCity plugins, along with a separate ReSharper Gallery for .NET plugins. By the end of 2017, approximately 3,000 plugins were already accessible.
We introduce the capability to sell plugins for IntelliJ-based IDEs on JetBrains Marketplace, leveraging the licensing and billing solutions provided by JetBrains.
In September 2018, we announce the transition of Plugin Repository into JetBrains Marketplace, which marks the shift to the extension ecosystem for all JetBrains products and a more expansive environment for plugin developers.
YouTrack widgets are available on JetBrains Marketplace. Users can now create custom widgets for YouTrack and share them with the community.
A plugin compatibility verification tool – Plugin Verifier – is introduced to identify any compatibility issues between plugins and the IntelliJ Platform.
Starting with the 2019.1 release cycle of IntelliJ-based IDEs, JetBrains introduces the option for third-party authors to create custom UI Themes. JetBrains launches the Themes Contest.
