Intellij IDEA: Importing a Gradle project
- IntelliJ IDEA by default has the Gradle plugin installed. If you have disabled it, go to
Plugins to re-enable them.
If your project involves GUI programming, similarly ensure the JavaFX plugin has not been disabled.
Import Project (or
Open or Import in newer version of Intellij).
- Locate the
build.gradle file (not the root folder as you would do in a normal importing) and select it. Click
If asked, choose to
Open as Project (not
Open as File).
OK to accept the default settings but do ensure that the selected version of
Gradle JVM matches the JDK being used for the project.
- Wait for the importing process to finish (could take a few minutes).
