The plugin is now available on the Intellij MarketPlace
I’ve written a plugin for intellij that integrates jmonkey into the intellij IDE. Currently it allows you to:
- Create a new pre-configured JME gradle project.
- View Models.
- Import Models.
- Scene Explorer
- Position/Rotation Editing
- Save Scene Changes
- View normals for debugging in the scene editor.
Features will continue to be added as time goes by.
To use the plugin, from within intellij IDEA:
- File -> Settings -> Plugins -> Search “JmonkeyEngine Integration”
To import models go to “Tools -> Import Model…”
To view models, go to the resources directory and double-click the j3o.
I’ve been dowloading models from sketchfab.com and they all pretty much seem to “just work” out of the box. Animations work, too. One thing to note is that I did have to increase my memory settings in intellij when importing large models (50mb+).
- Help -> Change Memory Settings…
Another thing I noticed at times is that some of the models import with HUGE sizes and you need to scroll out a lot or move the camera up to even see it. I guess I’ll have to do some scene querying or something to make sure the model is visible in the future.
