Setting up your IDE

Pravega uses Project Lombok so you should ensure you have your IDE setup with the required plugins. Using IntelliJ is recommended.

To import the source into IntelliJ:

  1. Import the project directory into IntelliJ IDE. It will automatically detect the gradle project and import things correctly.
  2. Enable Annotation Processing by going to Build, Execution, Deployment -> Compiler > Annotation Processors and checking 'Enable annotation processing'.
  3. Install the Lombok Plugin. This can be found in Preferences -> Plugins. Restart your IDE.
  4. Pravega should now compile properly.

For eclipse, you can generate eclipse project files by running ./gradlew eclipse.


The latest pravega releases can be found on the Github Release project page.
