I’m trying to import Gradle itself into IDEA to work on a minor feature enhancement. I am running IDEA v13 (build 133.370), and attempting to import Gradle HEAD as of this morning (commit at HEAD is 4e38919f788c361231a23b5d17c3f5f162f570df).
I attempt to import Gradle using File - Import Project, followed by gesturing to the top level build.gradle file. That import fails with details such as in this bug report: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-119781, which I just filed in response to the advice the IDEA screenshot gave me.
I tried following the README advice by executing “./gradlew idea”, then trying to open the .ipr file. That fails ultimately in the same way, as IDEA apparently wants to go down the File - Import Project path anyway.
Any ideas on how I can import Gradle into IDEA and work around this problem?
