PhpStorm Plugin is incompatible (supported only in IntelliJ IDEA)

If you ever encounter an issue with the incompatible plugin and have installed the plugin in PhpStorm, WebStorm, or any other JetBrains IDE. What I also faced was; I installed a plugin in PhpStorm and that plugin was not compatible with the newer version of PhpStorm.

The Problem:

The strange thing was there was no uninstall option in plugins and was always showing:
“ Plugin Error: Plugin “JSONOnlineViewer” is incompatible (supported only in IntelliJ IDEA).”

I thought it would be gone but it was always showing the issue in the first startup which I found very irritating.

The Solution:

You can always uninstall the plugin from your Mac or Windows or Linux going directly to the installation folder and delete the plugin to solve the issue.

For Mac:

Go to finder:

Browse to the path:

~/Library/Application Support/JetBrains/Toolbox/apps/PhpStorm/<version>/plugins/

<version>: You will find your version of PhpStorm there and go to plugins and remove the incompatible plugin.

For Windows:

C:\Users\<UserAccount>\<version>\config\plugins

Remove the plugin from there.

This solves your issue with the PhpStorm Plugin is incompatible (supported only in IntelliJ IDEA).
