IntelliJ IDEA 2020.1 Help

Getting Started with Typesafe Activator

IntelliJ IDEA lets you work with Lightbend Project Starter templates.

Create a project

Before you create a project make sure the Scala plugin is downloaded and enabled in IntelliJ IDEA.

  1. If no project is currently opened in IntelliJ IDEA, click Create New Project on the Welcome screen. Otherwise, select File | New | Project.

    As a result, the New Project wizard opens.

  2. In the left-hand pane, select Scala.

  3. In the right-hand pane, select Lightbend Project Starter.

    The New Project wizard: step one
    Click Next.

  4. On the next page of the wizard, specify your project's information, select a template application (the template description is also available) that you want to open and click Finish.

    The New Project wizard: step three
    The IntelliJ IDEA will create an sbt-based project with the selected template application.
