Importing a Play/Scala project created with SBT may be a little tricky. Follow these brief instructions to do it right.
Launch IntelliJ IDEA.
Click Import Project.
Browse to your home directory and select the directory containing SBT project.
Inside there will be another directory by the same name, this additional directory was created by SBT. It might seem silly to have a nested directory by the same name, but this structure will be helpful during the production deployment process. Keep it as is.
Select the nested project directory.
Click OK to confirm the default import settings.
Wait for the import process to complete.
