Feathr Scala Project Developer Guide

IntelliJ Setup

IntelliJ is the recommended IDE to use when developing Feathr. Please visit IntelliJ’s installation guide to install it in your local machine. To import Feathr as a new project:

  1. Git clone Feathr into your local machine. i.e. via https git clone or ssh git clone
  2. In IntelliJ, select File > Project from Existing Sources... and select feathr from the directory you cloned.
  3. Under Import project from external model select sbt. Click Next.
  4. Under Project JDK specify a valid Java 1.8 JDK and select SBT shell for project reload and builds.
  5. Click Finish.
  6. You should see something like [success] Total time: 5 s, completed Jun 1, 2022 9:43:26 PM in sbt shell.

Setup Verification

After waiting for IntelliJ to index, verify your setup by running a test suite in IntelliJ.

  1. Search for and open a random test, i.e. here we will go with AnchoredFeaturesIntegTest as shown in the IntelliJ screenshot below.
  2. Next to the class declaration, right click on the two green arrows and select Run 'AnchoredFeaturesIntegTest'. It could be any test case.
  3. Verify if all test cases have passed.
