Step 1
Download IntelliJ IDEA from Jetbrains

Step 2
Go to import project and select your '.project' file and click OK. To obtain the '.project' file, clone the Soot GitHub repository.

Step 3 Next select the Soot directory

Step 4 Import project from external model Eclipse

Step 5
Check the box with ‘keep project and module file in’ and ‘project format as ‘.idea'.
Note: Because we are keeping the project files in '.idea' dir, all of them will be ignored with ".idea" line in .gitignore


Step 6
Uncheck all projects except Soot. The unchecked projects are related to eclipse plug-in.
Note: Build path will be broken. Java SDK probably won't be recognized and some jars might be missing.

Step 7
Change the module's dependencies storage format to IntelliJ IDEA, so you won't have to modify the .classpath file. You can easily fix the SDK by resetting it, which is done in next step.

Step 8
Go to view and open module settings and Dependencies tab and select your Java version.

Step 9
Download the missing jars:

Put these files in ./libs_intellij so they are picked up by .gitignore. The final dependencies should resemble (java_cup.jar is not on the screenshot, but it should be):

Step 10
Create Run configuration by going to Run -> edit configuration

Congratulations! You have successfully imported & built Soot with IntelliJ IDEA.
