Enable automatic compilation

Get an improved JRebel development experience by enabling automatic compilation:
  1. Access Settings (Preferences on macOS).
  2. Select Build, Execution, Deployment > Compiler. Enable Build project automatically.
  3. Select Appearance & Behavior > System Settings. Enable Save files automatically if application is idle for. We recommend setting it to 10 seconds. (This is already enabled by default on IntelliJ 2018.1 and earlier.)
  4. Press OK.
  5. Press Ctrl+Shift+A (Cmd+Shift+A on macOS) and search for Registry. Open it to find and enable compiler.automake.allow.when.app.running (IntelliJ IDEA 15 and newer).
Do you prefer this over manually triggering build every time? When you have a moment, please send us some feedback!
