.idea directory

RubyMine seems to store all project and workspace settings is a .idea folder, instead of separate files. This looked a lot saner to me, and I wonder if IDEA could do the same?

Hello Marcus,

RubyMine seems to store all project and workspace settings is a .idea
folder, instead of separate files. This looked a lot saner to me, and
I wonder if IDEA could do the same?


It will do so quite soon.

Can you elaborate? I already configure idea.{config,plugins,system}.path
to point to directories in ${user.home}/.idea so I'd like to know how any
forthcoming changes might affect this.

Thanks.

Scott,
Future versions of IDEA will replace the .ipr file with a .idea folder
inside the project directory. This won't affect your own .idea folder in
the user directory.
