Enable automatic compilation
Get an improved JRebel development experience by enabling automatic compilation:
- Access Settings (Preferences on macOS).
- Select Build, Execution, Deployment > Compiler. Enable Build project automatically.
- 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.)
- Press OK.
- 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
