  • Select Import project from external model and choose Maven.

  • Continue with default settings in the following three dialogs.


  • Select JDK 1.8 or later for your project:

  • Click Next and let IDEA import the project as requested. The imported project will have the following structure:

  • Add (+) a new Maven run configuration.

  • Set your project’s folder as Working directory and enter spring-boot:run as Command line argument.

  • Click Run and watch the RemoteUI app starting in the console.

  • Open http://localhost:8080 to see one or more QR codes in your browser. These codes contain RemoteUI URLs (rui://…​) and represent links to your app based on the IP address(es) of your development machine.

    Make sure that your mobile device and your development machine are in the same LAN and the firewall settings allow the mobile device to connect to your development machine on the displayed IP address on port 8080.
