Adapted from Professor Wallach's Comp 215 instructions for installing IntelliJ IDEA with Java 8.


If this is the first time you have installed IntelliJ IDEA on your computer, the software will ask you to customize it a bit before starting. You can pick a color scheme that you like, then it will ask you to customize different plugins. Go through these pages and follow these instructions:

  • On the page "Tune IDEA to your tasks" click on "customize" for "Test Tools".   You should see that JUnit is automatically installed.  Click on "Save Changes and Go Back".
  • When  you get to the page "Download featured plugins" you will see a column  for Scala. Click on "Install" for that plugin. The Scala plugin will  install (this should take less than a minute on a reasonably  responsive  network).
