IntelliJ IDEA plugin for InterSystems

Let me introduce the support of InterSystems IRIS in IntelliJ IDEA. This plugin adds Syntax Highlighting support for ObjectScript, and auto import and compile on the server after saving a changed file. It uses LanguageServer written in Rust, where was added an ability to import and compile code.


  • You will need the latest version of IntelliJ IDEA, Community Edition also supported. Probably other editions of IntelliJ products also supported, but not tested.
  • Download the latest version of the plugin from the releases page, do not extract it
  • Open IntelliJ IDEA, go to Settings, Plugins, Gear icon, Install Plugin from Disk, and select downloaded file
  • Restart the IDE

Now you can open any folder with ObjectScript source code you already have as a new project.

And first of all, you have to configure the connection to IRIS. Settings -> Languages & Frameworks -> InterSystems. Note, that there is SuperServer port, not WebServer's.

After that, when you change mac or cls file, after save it's automatically will import to the server and compile.
