An Intellij IDEA (JetBrain IDE) plugin

as a software engineer, I spend most of my time in my IDE of choice, Intellij IDEA and I miss having a plugin that would integrate BuildKite into my work life.

Such plugins are common with other CI tools, see for example:

At a minimum, the plugin would let me trigger a new build, follow the build progress and see its result for a project.

A more advanced plugin would also help me write pipeline definitions, see for example how the kubernetes plugin assist in writing kubernetes manifests and helm charts.

Such a plugin would apply to all of JetBrain’s IDEs, I think

We don’t have immediate plans and bandwidth to support IntelliJ IDEA at the moment, but I can see how useful this would be for you. I have sent this to the internal board for considerations. We appreciate knowing that this is important to you!
