I tried installing the Python plugin, but it just doesn't seem to work
under IntelliJ 12.1.6.
Out of curiosity, you say it does not work in 12.1.6, but you link to a
forum post from 14 Feb 2013, the day 12.0.4 was the released. So I'm not sure how
Has Jetbrains abandoned the plugin in favor of PyCharms?
The PHP plug-in is basically PyCharm's code bundled for IntelliJ IDEA. I
highly doubt JetBrains is abandoning the plug-in. IntelliJ IDEA is its
flagship polyglot IDE. And given they released a new version of it less
then 2 weeks ago, that's a pretty good sign it is not abandoned.
I'm a little confused as to what versions of the Python plug-in you have
tried. You indicate in your above comment "versions 1216 and 1294". I'm not
seeing how those values map the the plug-in version. The latest version of
the Python plug-in is v3.0.1 which is for IDEA 13 (currently
in EAP/beta). The latest plug-in for IDEA 12 (build 129-*) is v2.10.2
If you are manually downloading the plug-in, you need to pay attention
to the "Since build" and "Until build" values. (If you only upgrade from
within the Plug-in Manager within IDEA< this is all managed for you.)
IDEA 12.1.x builds are on the 129.* branch. IDEA 12.0.x was the 123.*
branch. And IDEA 13 is the 133.* branch (with some early releases on the
130.* and 131.* branches). So for 12.1.x, the only compatible
All others are either for earlier versions of IDEA or for the upcoming
IDEA 13. IDEA v12.1.6 with Python Plug-in v2.10.2 works fine for me.
Can you verify the plug-in version? If it still does not work, can you
provide some more detail on what is not working.
