JetBrains sbt plugin - no-sbt-build-module

Hi,

is there any way to tell the IDEA sbt plugin to _not_ generate a *-build module for every sub-project in a multi project build when importing from an sbt project? Put another way, I'm searching for an equivalent to the 'no-sbt-build-module' parameter for sbt-idea's 'gen-idea' task as those modules clutter up the whole project.

Regards,

Messi

Currently there is no such possibilities. We will think about what is possible to do in this direction.

Thanks a lot, this really helps for projects with many modules.

Hi! Sorry for the late reply.

Unfortunately, currently there's no significant progress on this problem. We've discussed some possible solutions (using facets instead of modules, combine project and build modules, etc.), but decided not to introduce any changes yet, because they all have their downsides and upsides and build modules does not seem so ugly or bloated compared to them. However, we're working on moving our SBT support to sbt-remote-control and we'll try to combine project and build modules there if it will be possible.
