IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3 Help

Play2 New Project Dialog

IntelliJ IDEA lets you use this page for specifying the Play2 project information.

ItemDescription
Project NameUse this field to specify the name of your project.
Project LocationUse this field to specify the location of your project. You can click /help/img/idea/2016.3/browseButton.png and select the necessary directory in the dialog that opens.
Project SDKSpecify the SDK to be used.

If the necessary SDK is already defined in IntelliJ IDEA, select it from the list. Otherwise, click New and select the installation folder of the desired IntelliJ IDEA version. (An IntelliJ IDEA installation acts as an IntelliJ Platform Plugin SDK.) If asked to specify a JDK first, do so.

Scala versionUse this field to specify the Scala SDK version. If the necessary SDK is already defined in IntelliJ IDEA, select it from the drop-down list.
Play 2 versionUse this field to specify the Play 2 SDK version.
ItemDescription
More SettingsClick the arrow (/help/img/idea/2016.3/arrow_right_show_settings.png or /help/img/idea/2016.3/arrow_down_hide_settings.png) to show or hide additional settings. Mainly, these are the settings for the module to be created (discussed below).

Note that in certain cases those additional settings are unavailable.

Module nameSpecify the module name.
Content rootSpecify the path to the module content root folder. (This is where all the files that make up you module will be stored; for more information, see Content Root.)

To use a different folder, click /help/img/idea/2016.3/browseButton.png (Shift+Enter) and select the necessary folder in the dialog that opens. (You can create a new folder in that dialog, e.g. by using /help/img/idea/2016.3/icon_newFolder.png.)

Module file locationSpecify the path to the folder where the .iml module file should be created.

By default, this file is created in the module content root folder (recommended).

To use a different folder, click /help/img/idea/2016.3/browseButton.png (Shift+Enter) and select the necessary folder in the dialog that opens. (You can create a new folder in that dialog, e.g. by using /help/img/idea/2016.3/icon_newFolder.png.)

Project formatSelect the project format to be used. (The .idea directory-based format is recommended).
