Interactive Groovy console

Tools | Groovy Console

Interactive Groovy console can be launched in any project.

Note that if dependencies in your project contain a Groovy library then the specified Groovy library will be used to launch the Groovy console. If the dependencies do not contain a Groovy library then the bundled Groovy library of the Groovy version 2.3.9 will be used.

Use the editor for the interactive Groovy console to write and evaluate your code.
