The Scala community knows that the place to be on June 16th – 18th is Scala Days 2014 conference. So, the entire team behind the IntelliJ Scala plugin went to Berlin to embrace the awesomeness of this event.
Besides attending the talks (I wish I had enough time to hear them all), we delivered our own presentation Good to Great: IntelliJ IDEA and Scala (hosted by Alexander).
We also had a booth with amazing giveaways that included IntelliJ IDEA Yo-Yos (and stickers):
Even though the distribution of Yo-Yos was, undoubtedly, our main goal, we were very happy to meet IntelliJ Scala plugin users in person. What can I say? Sometimes we had a feeling of being rockstars (thanks for all the praise, folks!), sometimes, well, we could only humbly promise to fix this or that bug…
Meeting real Scala rockstars like Martin, Jason, Josh, just to name a few, was a real pleasure.
Thanks to everyone who took care to answer our questionnaire. You’ve been very helpful, and here’s just a few stats we’ve collected: Continue reading →
We are extremely happy to let you know that the latest version of the Scala plugin (0.29.479) for the upcoming IntelliJ IDEA 13.0.2 has no false error highlighting for our own source base anymore. Moreover, a number of corresponding tests have been added to our TeamCity server, so we don’t expect to see a regression further.
The next step will be using source base of an external popular open-source project as a test for spotting false errors highlighting. That’s why we ask you for suggestions on such projects.
Today we are happy to announce that the built-in support for SBT projects is finally here. The newest version of Scala plugin for IntelliJ IDEA 13 (0.23.308) comes with the following list of features:
Import SBT project
Auto-import SBT projects
Highlighting for .sbt files
To import an SBT project please use one of these options:
File → Open, then choose .sbt file to import it as project
File → Import Project, then choose .sbt file or directory containing SBT project
Don’t forget to use Enable auto-import checkbox to have your IntelliJ IDEA project automatically synchronized with .sbt files.
More cool features as well as the support for integration between Play 2.0 and SBT are coming soon. Please feel free to share your feedback, feature requests or just report found bugs to our issue tracker.

A few weeks ago Alexandr Podkhaliuzin, lead developer from JetBrains was invited to SF Scala to give a talk about Scala support in IntelliJ IDEA.
In his presentation he talked about Scala language and its non-trivial technical aspects which make development more complicated as compared to other languages, and how the IntelliJ IDEA helps developers to overcome these complications and essentially be more productive. The presentation mentions both well-known and brand new features, which will be available in the nearest release.
After a short delay we’d like to share the video and slides from the presentation with you.
