IntelliJ & Android Studio

The Dart plugin adds Dart support to JetBrains IDEs such as IntelliJ IDEA and Android Studio. IntelliJ IDEA is an intelligent Java IDE with support for many other languages and frameworks. Android Studio is an IDE based on IntelliJ IDEA that’s used for Android and Flutter development.

Whichever JetBrains IDE you choose for Dart development, this page has resources to help you get started quickly and find more information when you need it.

Getting started

If you don’t already have the IDE and the Dart SDK, get them. Then install the Dart plugin and tell it where to find the Dart SDK.

Downloading the IDE

Install a JetBrains IDE if you don’t already have one.

Downloading the Dart SDK

If you don’t already have the Dart SDK, install it.

Configuring Dart support

Here’s one way to configure Dart support:

  1. Start the IDE, and install the Dart plugin. To find the Dart plugin, from the Welcome screen choose Configure > Plugins, then click Install JetBrains plugin, and then search or scroll down until you find Dart. Once you've installed the Dart plugin, restart the IDE.

  2. Create a new Dart project:

    1. From the Welcome screen, click Create New Project.
    2. In the next dialog, click Dart.

  3. If you don't see a value for the Dart SDK path, enter it.

    For example, the SDK path might be <dart installation directory>/dart/dart-sdk.

An alternative to Step 2 is to open an existing Dart project, and then open its pubspec.yaml file or any of its Dart files.

Please report issues and feedback via the official JetBrains issue tracker for Dart. Include details of the expected behavior, the actual behavior, and screenshots if appropriate.
