  1. Download and install IntelliJ.
  2. In the IntelliJ IDEA, go to File > Settings.
  3. On the left panel, select Plugins.
  4. Click the Marketplace tab.
  5. Enter Talend in the search field and select Talend Component Kit.
  6. Click Install.
  7. Click Restart IDE to complete the installation.
    The plugin is now installed in your InteliJ IDEA and you can start using it.
  8. Go to File > New > Project.
  9. In the New Project wizard, select Talend Component and click Next.
    The Talend Starter Kit tool is loaded and allows you to configure your project structure.
