IntelliJ Idea support for Bash scripting

Unix users write scripts in their favorite editor. That’s ok, but when you have bigger project then power of IDE could help you. E.g. when editing project based on mix of Python, Bash and Java.

There is very useful plugin for IDEA known as BashSupport.

It will give you syntax highlight, code hinting and CTRL+Click is working the same way like in other programming languages. Very handy.

Here is example:


How to install this plugin?

File -> Settings. Search for word Plugins. Click Browse repository. Type BashSupport to search field. Right click on plugin name and choose install. restart Idea.


Enjoy 🙂

Note: This plugin works also on Windows, you need to configure just path to bash (e.g. Bash from Cygwin).
