IntelliJ IDEA 2019.2 Help

Save Project As Template Dialog

Tools | Save Project As Template

Specify the settings for the template that you are creating.




If the project that you are saving as a template contains more than one module, you can select to create a template for the whole project, or to include only for one of the modules in the template. So select <whole project> or the name of the corresponding module.

This option is not available if your project contains only one module.


Specify the name of the template.


Type the template description.

You can enclose text fragments between <b> and </b>, and <i> and </i> to make the corresponding fragments bold or italicized. For example:

A project with a <b>Java</b> module and support for <i>Web development</i> and <i>Tomcat</i>.

Replace parameters with placeholders

If you select this checkbox (recommended), you will have additional options when creating a new template-based project or module. For example, you will be able to specify the base Java package and an application server different from the ones defined in the current project.
