Whatever you do in JetBrains DataSpell, you do that in the context of a project. A project is an organizational unit that represents a complete software solution. It serves as a basis for coding assistance, bulk refactoring, coding style consistency, and so on.
A project in JetBrains DataSpell is represented in the Directory Based Format. A project directory is marked with icon.
Such project directory contains the .idea directory, with the following files:
.iml file that describes the project structure.
workspace.xml file that contains your workspace preferences.
A number of xml files. Each xml file is responsible for its own set of settings, that can be recognized by its name: projectCodeStyle.xml, encodings.xml, vcs.xml, and so on.
Thus, for example, adding a new run/debug configuration and changing encoding will affect two different xml files. This helps avoid merge conflicts when the project settings are stored in a version control system and modified by the different team members.
.idea directory is not visible in the Project view of the Project tool window.
The directory structure of each project contains the .idea directory for the JetBrains DataSpell-specific settings and the project file, and libraries.
JetBrains DataSpell suggests the following types of projects:
