Also, and maybe as important, does Clover works for groovy with IntelliJ IDEA ?

Hi Michele, 

The latest Clover release, which is 4.1.1, has been tested against the latest IDEA version which was available at that time, which is IDEA 15. See

Having said this, I ran Clover 4.1.1 with IDEA 2016.2 and did not notice significant problems. Do you have any?
We will officially support IDEA 2016.2 soon - the is already implemented and is scheduled for Clover 4.1.2.

Hi Michele,

Regarding Groovy support in IDEA. Unfortunately, this is not supported. We have a feature request for this: 

however, it's implementation is not planned in the foreseeable future. In the issue you can find an attachment with a prototype from my spike, you can play with it if you wish.


I would like to suggest a following workaround:

You can configure Clover in Maven pom.xml - it will support both Java and Groovy - and run Clover's goals from the 'Maven Projects' tab in IDEA and generate HTML report. 

This could be done with Ant and Grails integration too.
