With the recent release of IntelliJ IDEA 13 (build: 133.193, released: December 3, 2013) it’s no longer true - the version comes with built-in sbt support and the support is available in the free Community Edition, too.
My recent, rather quite frequent visits on StackOverflow have showed that there’s one question very often asked - How to start using sbt with IntelliJ IDEA? It turns out that the latest version of IntelliJ IDEA 13 squashed it pretty neatly and the built-in sbt support made the question irrelevant.
Unless it changes, the page remains empty1. What a surprise, isn’t it? I’ve always been thinking about writing the best beginner guide and here it is…at long last!
On to querying StackOverflow’s #sbt tag for questions about a sbt support in IntelliJ IDEA 13.
