Update play framework configuration in IntelliJ

There appears to be no way to update the PLAY HOME in IntelliJ / Idea from the UI (version 11.1.2). So if you need to change the configuration of the “Play with Playframework” feature then you need to do it from the config file. On Linux the PLAY HOME is stored in this file:

~/.IntelliJIdea11/config/options/other.xml

And this is the entry you need to change:

  <component name="PlayframeworkConfiguration" home="$USER_HOME$/programs/play-2.0.1" />

Note that you need to update the file after you closed IntelliJ, otherwise the old value will be rewritten…
