Custom Project Templates

Studio supports custom artifacts containing project templates, so you can provide your own templates for new projects, UI screens, and FlowUI views.

To set the artifact coordinates, click SettingsJmix Plugin Settings and enter the group and artifact name in the Additional templates artifact field. The artifact version must be the same as the Jmix BOM version used in the project templates of this artifact.

Studio looks for the standard templates artifact ( and the custom one in the repository selected in the New Project wizard. If both are found, it merges the templates giving the priority to the custom templates. It allows you to override a standard template by providing your own template in the same directory, for example, content/project/application.

To build an artifact with custom templates, follow the steps below.

  1. Clone the repository and copy its jmix-templates subdirectory to a different location on your computer.

  2. Change group property in build.gradle, for example:

    group = ''
  3. Change version in to the value of the desired Jmix BOM, for example:

    version = 1.5.0
  4. Modify existing templates or add yours. For example, copy the content/project/application folder to my-application and change the name and order properties in its template.json file:

      "version": 1,
      "name": "My Full-Stack Application",
      "order": 50,
      "addon": false,
  5. Build the artifact and publish it to the local Maven repository:

    ./gradlew publishToMavenLocal
  6. Click SettingsJmix Plugin Settings and enter in the Additional templates artifact field.

  7. Remove the templates cache from the IDE configuration directory:

    • Find your IDE configuration directory as explained in the IntelliJ IDEA docs.

    • Remove everything from its jmix/templates subdirectory.

  8. Create a new project and select Use local Maven repository checkbox. In the Jmix version dropdown, select the version of your custom artifact.

  9. On the next step of the wizard, you should see the combined list of templates, including your custom template.
