Available settings

  • ideExcludedDirectories : Seq[File]

List of directories to be marked as excluded in IDE.

  • idePackagePrefix : Option[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.

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[Option[String]]("ide-package-prefix") := Option("org.example.application")
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"))
