Example: creating a new path variable
You may have a library that is located outside your project directory. This library is attached to your project, and the path to this library is included in the .iml file of your project. However, this path should not be absolute, because the location on this library may be different on your teammates' computers. In this case, you can create the
- Press ⌃ ⌥ S to open the IDE settings and select Appearance & Behavior | Path Variables.
In the Add Variable dialog, type the
PATH_TO_LIBvariable, and its value that points to the library location on your disk.
Share the .iml file through your version control system.
After your teammates update their projects from VCS, they will change the
PATH_TO_LIBvariable value so that it points to the library location on their computers.
