Accepted answer

There is no direct equivalent in IntelliJ. To make it easier to share configurations or other project settings between multiple developers, you can use path variables (Settings | Path Variables, see the Help for more information). To customize the options before launching the run configuration, enable the "Before launch | Show Settings" option in the run configuration settings.


I've never seen anything like that in all my years using IntelliJ IDEA.

You can open a feature request in their issue tracker, and maybe they'll implement it in a future release.


Maybe this is what you want. it's work on mine project.


launchctl setenv ANDROID_HOME= /usr/myuser/android_sdk/
and restart intellij


Just did this for a machine specific variable in IntelliJ 11.0.2. Set up a path variable i.e. MY_VARIABLE. Use in your run config as you would in eclipse : ${MY_VARIABLE}


In the 2016 version of IntelliJ at least, you can access environment variables using the brace-enclosed environment variable syntax:


is expanded properly, but the alternative syntax


does not work.
