IntelliJ IDEA 2020.1 Help

Play Configuration dialog

Tools | Play with Playframework

The Tools | Play with Playframework command and the Play Configuration dialog are available only under the following conditions:

  • The Playframework Support plugin is enabled. See Manage plugins.

  • A Play application is currently open in IntelliJ IDEA. (In technical terms, the directory <play_dir>\framework\lib and the file <play_dir>\framework\play-<version>.jar are included in the dependencies of the module that represents your Play application.)

Additionally, the Play Configuration dialog is not shown if the Show on console run option is off in the Play framework settings.

Use this dialog for specifying the Play framework settings such as the Play framework installation directory and the working directory for the play command-line utility (the Play console).
