If IntelliJ is your choice for Java development, you can now add the power of the Perfecto plugin to this development environment. Use the following simple steps to install and configure the Perfecto plugin:

Install IntelliJ IDEA

Go to IntelliJ web site to download and install either the (free) Community or (licensed) Ultimate version of IntelliJ.

Verify that the Gradle build automation system is installed on your computer. (If not installed, install from gradle.org.) Define the Environment variable - GRADLE_HOME to link to the location of Gradle, and add GRADLE_HOME\bin to your Path variable.

Verify that the Gradle plugin is installed and activated.

If not installed, install from the set of JetBrains plugins.

  1. Open IntelliJ,
  2. Open the Settings window by selecting File > Settings... from the menu.
  3. Select Plugins from the options list.
  4. Verify that Gradle appears and is checked.
