Add the following lines to ~/.sbt/plugins/build.sbt or PROJECT_DIR/project/plugins.sbt

addSbtPlugin("com.github.mpeltonen" % "sbt-idea" % "1.2.0")

To use the latest snapshot version, add also Sonatype snapshots repository resolver into the same file:

resolvers += "Sonatype snapshots" at ""

addSbtPlugin("com.github.mpeltonen" % "sbt-idea" % "1.3.0-SNAPSHOT")


Basic project

Use the gen-idea sbt task to create Idea project files.

Project with dependencies

If you have two sbt projects A and B, and A depends on B, then use the gen-idea sbt task on Project A to create Idea project files for both projects.

The projects need to be set up in the following way:

Project A:

import sbt._

object A extends Build {
  lazy val A = Project("A", file(".")) aggregate(B) dependsOn(B)
  lazy val B = RootProject(file("../B"))

Project B:

import sbt._

object B extends Build {
  lazy val B = Project("B", file("."))

Sources and javadocs

By default, classifiers (i.e. sources and javadocs) of dependencies are loaded if found and references added to Idea project files. If you don't want to download/reference them, use command 'gen-idea no-classifiers'.
