    What is the correct process now for creating/importing a play project.
    I used to do:
    play idea

    and then import them. That always worked.

    With this new version of the plugin(s) that creates a fairly broken project/experience.

    Answered my own question.. had to delete the .idea and .idea_modules folders and retry.

    I had done just .idea, but forgot to wipe out .idea_modules also.

    Running Idea 12.1.4 with updated scala and play plugins but it does not really work for me. I tried different setups on my mac os: with Brew and just local setup.

    I have created a clean project with just scala module that contains:

    import scala.io.Source

    object Main extends App {

    val file = Source.fromFile(“/usr/share/dict/words”)
    val wordStream = file.getLines().map(_.toLowerCase).toStream
    val results = wordStream.filter(_.startsWith(args(0))).take(10).mkString(” “)



    I have created this with code completion. But after running and trying to update the code it started to miss map, filter, println methods which where add with codecomplete. No change to config at all. Also started to have problems and import resolving with Play Framework integration.

    Does anyone experience such problems?
    I will play a bit more with new setup to make it work and run. But at the moment 🙁
