Working a tutorial with IntelliJ IDEA

This guide walks you through using IntelliJ IDEA to build one of the tutorials.

What you will build?

You’ll pick a tutorial and import it into IntelliJ IDEA. Then you can read the guide, work on the code, and run the project.

What you will need?

Installing IntelliJ IDEA

If you don’t have IntelliJ IDEA installed yet, visit the link up above. From there, you can download a copy for your platform. To install it simply unpack the downloaded archive.

When you’re done, go ahead and launch IntelliJ IDEA.

Importing a project

To import an existing project you need some code, so clone or copy one of the tutorials repository.

$> git clone

With IntelliJ IDEA up and running, click Import Project on the Welcome Screen, or File > Open on the main menu: TODO: inserer une image

In the pop-up dialog make sure to select Maven’s pom.xml under the complete folder: TODO: inserer une image

IntelliJ IDEA will create a project with all the code from the guide ready to run.

Creating a project from Scratch

In case you’d like to start with an empty project and copy-and-paste your way through the tutorial, create a new Maven project in the Project Wizard: TODO: add screenshot
