Integrate Move & Aptos into your projects

Move Intellij IDE Plugin

The first Intellij IDE plugin for Move

Used to building projects in Intellij IDEs like PyCharm or Clion? Now you can add Move to your stack – the ultimate secure smart contract language designed by Meta.

Experiment with Move and build dApps for Move-compatible blockchains like Aptos – all in the IDE you’re used to.

What’s new




  • Add "Download Aptos" button to the Move settings.
  • Address validation in the Move.toml file.
  • Function naming inspection.
  • Highlight resources and mutable references in the code.
  • Support underscores in integer and hex literals (#107).


  • More fixes for dot expr type inference.


  • Add [dependencies] and library path to the Sentry diagnostics. It will hopefully allow to fix issues with the dependency paths.

Key features

Syntax highlighting

Plugin can differentiate between keywords and non-keywords based on context and has extensive error recovery support. A missing brace won’t break your code.

Type inference support

See the most common errors highlighted and get intelligent type hints, with completion suggestions sorted by expected type.

Symbol support

Quickly find a function signature, highlight its usages, and auto-complete. The Rename refactoring feature quickly renames items across the project and its dependencies.

Error checks on-the-fly

The plugin finds errors in the Move compiler as you go to maximize your productivity. You can even apply quick fixes without writing new code.

Automated use statement handling

The Move plugin generates use statements based on the completion suggestions and helps you sort them and remove unused one.

Move Project Model

The plugin understands the structure, modules, and dependencies of your Move project and stores all the data in a regularly updated Project Model.

Automated code formatting

The plugin features a unique Move auto-formatter that can be easily invoked with a command.

The language of the future

Move is the most secure and efficient smart contract language – a far better match for the future blockchain ecosystem than Solidity.

Fully usable

Using the plugin and our Move browser code editor, you can create smart contracts, tokens, and complete dApps for Aptos and other Move VM-compatible chains.

Build for the first billion users

Aptos and Pontem are working together to onboard the first billion blockchain users through dApps built with Move. Join the revolution!
