Using Command Line Tools
In this section:
You can run command line commands right from IntelliJ IDEA. Just configure the commands that fit your preferences and needs as a command line tool and register it in IntelliJ IDEA. You can have as many command line tools as you need.
Integration with command line tools is provided at the IntelliJ IDEA level, so once configured, a tool can be used in all your IntelliJ IDEA projects. Just activate or de-activate it when necessary depending on the needs of each specific project.
Integration with command line tools is supported via the Command Line Tool Support plugin. The plugin is not bundled with IntelliJ IDEA, but it can be installed from the JetBrains plugin repository as described in Installing, Updating and Uninstalling Repository Plugins and Enabling and Disabling Plugins.
The available tools are listed in the Command Line Tool Support page of the Settings/Preferences dialog.
Before you start working with Command Line tools, make sure that the Command Line Tool support plugin is downloaded and enabled, as described in Installing, Updating and Uninstalling Plugins.
