Dart Plugin from JetBrains

The Dart plugin adds Dart support to JetBrains IDEs such as WebStorm and IntelliJ IDEA. WebStorm is an IDE for client-side development. IntelliJ IDEA is an intelligent Java IDE with support for many other languages and frameworks.

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

Once your IDE has the Dart plugin, you need to tell it where to find the Dart SDK and (optionally) Dartium.

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, you need to install it. If you’re using Dart to develop web apps, we recommend install Dartium, as well.

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 values for the Dart SDK path and (optional) Dartium path, enter them.

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

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.
