I installed plug-in 'Intellij-Solidity' in Intellij Idea. But I did not found any new project option to create . Is there any environment setup for solidity programming. I use Ubuntu 16.04 LTS .

    I would assume the plugin is for syntax highlighting only – Mikko Ohtamaa Jun 13 '17 at 15:10

    absolutely, Do u have any idea how to run solidity program using Intellij idea? – Gopal ojha Jun 14 '17 at 10:35
  • @Gopalojha. I don't think you can "run" solidity programs afaiak in IntelliJ yet. Smart contracts written in solidity(.sol) are deployed on test or live net after they are compiled(using solc etc). – bitsabhi Feb 19 '18 at 12:57

If it is simply smart contracts you are interested in developing you might find it easier and more supported to use the Solidity online compiler: https://ethereum.github.io/browser-solidity/

    Thankyou for suggestion . But I want to use Intellij Idea for that . – Gopal ojha Jun 14 '17 at 6:51

Starting version 2.1.0, Intellij Solidity plugin supports running solidity functions directly in IDEA. It will use an EthereumJ standalone node (refer to Solidity settings to configure/download EthereumJ)
