SBT plugin for tweaking various IDE settings

Download Build Status JetBrains team project

This plugin provides several keys to be read by IDE while importing project. Available for sbt 0.13.5+ and 1.0


  1. Add the following lines to project/plugins.sbt:
addSbtPlugin("org.jetbrains" % "sbt-ide-settings" % "1.0.0")
  1. Tweak any settings you want

Available settings

  • ideExcludedDirectories : Seq[File]

    List of directories to be marked as excluded in IDE.

  • ideBasePackages : Seq[String]

    List of packages to be used as base prefixes for chaining. Packages starting with one of these prefixes will be chained automatically in IDE.

  • ideSkipProject : Boolean

    Flag indicating that current subproject should be skipped from importing.

  • ideOutputDirectory : Option[File]

    Directory to use for production and test output instead of SBT's target directory.

Using the settings without plugin

All the settings in this plugin are simply flags that are respected by IntelliJ IDEA on project import. They can be added to a project as a setting without including this plugin in the following format:

SettingKey[Seq[File]]("ide-excluded-directories") := Seq(file("some/file"))
SettingKey[Seq[String]]("ide-base-packages") := Seq("package1", "package2")
SettingKey[Boolean]("ide-skip-project") := true
SettingKey[Option[File]]("ide-output-directory") := Option(file("some/file"))
You can’t perform that action at this time.
