Turns the Editor Integration feature on. This is simply a hint to the action to add extra information into the generated workspace that allows an IDE to know which/where and how premake was executed. This is currently really only implemented for the Visual Studio action, but other actions may use this too in the future.

There is a plugin that allows re-execution of the premake step from within Visual Studio, which can be found here:

editorintegration "value"

If no value is set for a configuration, the toolset's default setting (usually "Off") will be used.


value is a boolean value, i.e. "On" or "Off".

Applies To

Workspace configurations.


Premake 5.0 or later.
