Installation

Where to get the plug-in

Most users don’t have to “get” the plug-in anywhere, as there is an automatic installation built into IDEA.  See “Install using IDEA” (the next section).

Published versions of the Haxe plug-in for IDEA are available through JetBrains’ plug-in repository and github.

Pre-release and feature test versions are available at github.


To install using IDEA (from the IntelliJ Plug-in Repository)

Install and start IDEA, either Ultimate or Community Edition works for most operations.  Debugging does not work in Community Edition.  IDEA is found at https://www.jetbrains.com/idea

If you do not have a project open in IDEA (and after first-time setup):

  1. On the IDEA welcome screen, select “Configure(dropdown)->Plugins”
  2. Click on the “Browse Repositories…” button.
  3. Type ‘haxe’ to see the description for the plugin.
  4. Select ‘Install’ to install it.
  5. Allow IDEA to restart and initialize the plugin.

If you already have a project open in IDEA:

  1. Open the Settings dialog (File->Settings…)
  2. Highlight “Plugins” in the leftmost column
  3. Click on the “Browse Repositories…” button.
  4. Type ‘haxe’ to see the description for the plugin.
  5. Select ‘Install’ to install it.
  6. Allow IDEA to restart and initialize the plugin.

To manually install the latest or a previous Github release

Download the `intellij-haxe.jar` file from the release you want from [Github releases](https://github.com/HaxeFoundation/intellij-haxe/releases).
More recent releases have begun to be named `intellij-haxe-<release>.jar`, where &lt;release&gt; is the version of Idea for which the Jar is built. (e.g. `intellij-haxe-14.1.1.jar`)
Make sure that you pick the proper one for your release. A message should pop up and warn you if a release is incompatible.

If you do not yet have a project open in IDEA (and after first-time setup):

  1. On the IDEA welcome screen, select “Configure(dropdown)->Plugins”
  2. Click “Install plugin from disk…”
  3. Select the “intellij-haxe.jar” file you downloaded
  4. Allow IDEA to restart and initialize the plugin.

If you already have a project open in IDEA:

  1. Open the Settings dialog (File->Settings…)
  2. Highlight “Plugins” in the leftmost column
  3. Click “Install plugin from disk…”
  4. Select the “intellij-haxe.jar” file you downloaded
