Edaphic.Studio is currently available as a plugin for JetBrains IDEs and will be available in the future as a standalone EDA focused IDE. Our plugin works with the most recent releases of JetBrains products.

If you are not currently using a JetBrains IDE, then we recommend the free IntelliJ Community version. See the steps below for how to install IntelliJ and our SystemVerilog plug-in.

If you are already using a JetBrains IDE, then search for "Edaphic.Studio" in the plugin store. You might still find useful information on these pages.

These pages assume you are using IntelliJ but should be relevant for any JetBrains IDE.

Download, install and launch IntelliJ

IntelliJ can be downloaded and installed in your local home directory without administrative rights on all platforms which makes it easy to try out our product personally. When you become a customer, you should do a centralized install.

  1. Download the free IntelliJ Community Edition. IntelliJ is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

  2. There are IntelliJ install instructions and launch steps on the download page.

Edaphic Studio works with the latest IntelliJ versions from 2018.1 forward. It should work with older version, but this is not supported.

Built-in Plugin Selection

When you’re starting IntelliJ for the first time, it asks you to select the plugins you’d like to use from the list of bundled plugins. It’s a good idea to disable plugins you know you’ll never use to improve startup time and memory use. If you change your mind later, you can always re-enable them in Settings→Plugins.

Coming from Eclipse?

If you’re used to Eclipse, then JetBrains have a migration guide. It’s relatively Java-specific, but there’s some useful information there relevant to Edaphic. Studio too, as well as basic IntelliJ terminology.

Installing Edaphic.Studio

If this is the first time you’ve started IntelliJ, you’ll see the welcome screen:

Initial launch screen

To install the plugin, open the plugins dialog from the Configure menu:

If you’ve been using IntelliJ previously, then open the plugins window from Settings→Plugins as usual.

Once in the plugins window, press Browse Repositories…:

Click "Browse Repositories..."

  1. Search for "Edaphic.Studio"
  2. Install Edpaphic.Studio using the green install button, then close the Browse Repositories window and the Settings window.

Search for "Edaphic.Studio" and then install it

Restart IntelliJ by pushing the restart button:

Restart IntelliJ to finish Edaphic.Studio install

IntelliJ Settings

IntelliJ is very configurable - you’ll find the general settings in File→Settings on Windows or Linux (or IntelliJ IDEA→Preferences on OSX). If you’re looking for something specific, try typing it into the search box above the left-hand panel, and IntelliJ highlights any instances of settings with that name. All Edaphic.Studio settings are searchable in this way.
