Using sbt plugin for creating IntelliJ IDEA project files (update)

This article contains up-to-date information. I followed the tutorial from the Guardian but there were some issues and I managed to resolve everything. So first we will install the sbt-idea plugin. This time I will install the plugin not on individual project basis but for our SBT installation directly.

First I had to create a plugins folder in my %USER_HOME%/.sbt/ which in below snippet has already been taken care of. Next I created a build.sbt and I added the mpeltonen plugin.
$ pwd

nxp10009@NXL01366 ~/.sbt/plugins
$ ls -la
total 3
drwxr-xr-x    5 nxp10009 Administ     4096 Dec 17 14:14 .
drwxr-xr-x    1 nxp10009 Administ        0 Dec 17 14:13 ..
-rw-r--r--    1 nxp10009 Administ       61 Dec 17 14:14 build.sbt

$ less build.sbt
addSbtPlugin("com.github.mpeltonen" % "sbt-idea" % "1.1.0")

So next I created a new project according to my previous article and tried to check if everything worked ok. But I soon ran into following issue:
[warn] Host repo.typesafe.com not found. url=http://repo.typesafe.com/typesafe/ivy-releases/com.github.mpeltonen/sbt-idea/scala_2.9.2/sbt_0.12/1.1.0-M2-TYPESAFE/ivys
[info] You probably access the destination server through a proxy server that is not well configured.

So I had to configure a proxy for SBT to use. I could have created an alias in my bashrc script but I decided to change the SBT start script and add the proxy to the JAVA_OPTS
nxp10009@NXL01366 /c/development/sbt
$ less sbt
# sbt launcher script for Cygwin and MSYS

JAVA_OPTS="-Dhttp.proxyHost=http://your_proxy -Dhttp.proxyPort=8080 -Dhttps.proxyHost=http://your_proxy -Dhttps.proxyPort=8080 -Xmx512M"
