An IDE other than IntelliJ (or no IDE at all) can be used for actual development. We do strongly encourage using IntelliJ, as we provide additional tooling for it in the form of a plugin, to assist in development.


Download NSX Support plugin 1.13.0  and install it from disk (Settings > Plugins > Install Plugin from Disk...).

install from disk
