Partial Intellij idea project files generation

(Salvian Reynaldi) #1

What is the most efficient way to generate intellij idea files partially in gradle, while honoring java dependencies?
with monolithic repositories, gradlew idea might consume a lot of time & memory for both the idea task execution and the project load in the IDE itself. I want to run just root’s ideaProject, ideaWorkspace, and some sub-projects’ ideaModule that I wish to load
e.g. if I want to load project A while it depends on project B in the compile / testCompile configuration, I want to make :A:idea depend on :B:idea
How can it be done?
