This getting started guide is intended for those who want to start working with the Scala IntelliJ IDEA plugin. Hope it gives you a good kick to start exploring the plugin for yourself, and, of course, reading this space - you can find more useful information about other helpful plugin features, like Java/Scala cross-language interoperability which includes refactorings, coding assistance and much more.
In this guide:
- If you plan to create other projects that involve this library, select Global - thus you will be able to share the library anywhere on the current machine.
- If you select Project level, then all the jar archives will be included in your project. This makes your project portable between the different computers and independent from the Scala SDK.
To significantly speed-up project compilation you may configure the Fast Scala Compiler (FSC).
