Technical Rider

What is a Technical Rider?

I often change my work station and at every change I have to set up my development tools from the scratch. I often forget the names of useful IDE plugins and for this I need a solution. I decided to public my IDE setting list and which other tools I usually use. This idea is inspired of  music industry. Every music band send their concert organizer a technical rider that describes how to set up their equipment. My equipments are amongst others IDEs.
