JetBrains Marketplace is a dedicated website where the community can exchange custom plugins for JetBrains products. This website also serves as a platform for sharing custom widgets.
The marketplace itself is integrated directly with your Hub installation. This means that you can browse and install widgets from the marketplace without leaving Hub. The list in Hub is filtered to show only widgets that are compatible with your Hub installation version. If your Hub installation is out of date, there may be additional widgets in the marketplace that are only compatible with later versions. To see a complete list of available widgets, browse the marketplace online.
In Hub, you can only search the list of widgets that are currently installed. When browsing the marketplace online, you have a few more ways to find widgets faster:
Use the search box to find widgets that contain matching keywords in the name or description.
Filter the search results by category.
Click a tag to show all widgets with this tag.
While it is entirely possible to download widgets from the marketplace and upload them manually to Hub, we strongly advise against it. If you find a widget in the marketplace that you want to use, open the Custom Widgets page in Hub and install it from there. This preserves the link between the widget and the marketplace and lets you install updates quickly when a new version is published.
