I upgraded to intelliJ 11.1.3 today so that I could get the new ui to create a twitter bootstrap web module. When I go through the wizard ui,it errors out.
Here are my steps:
Click on Add Module
First screen, select Create Module from scratch
Second screen, select Web module
Third screen, select Twitter Bootstrap
It pops up text saying Twitter Bootstrap version: Getting list ...
It justs sits there and spins.
The status bar at the bottom says "updating versions of bootstrap repository..."
If I cancel out of the box and click on the status bar it says "Downloading https://api.github.com/repos/twitter/bootstrap/tags"
But it doesn't succeed.
I had a similar problem trying to to check for updates. It would fail as well. I set the http proxy in the intelliJ ui to a valid value that I was using in my web browser and it started working.
I have shell environment variables set like the following:
env | grep proxy
So is there another setting that I have to set?
Maybe a https proxy setting?
or a java setting?
or an ide setting?
I can reference https://api.github.com/repos/twitter/bootstrap/tags from the browser and from curl just fine.
