Creating IntelliJ plugin with WebView

In this post, we would like to show how to create a simple plugin for IntelliJ with JCEF, the new WebView framework. In our company, we use it to build such tools as GraphBuddy or CodeTale. The first one is already released, the second one we are still working on in our R&D team. It is a plugin to your IDE, which enables you to browse comments from pull requests.
