Sensei Documentation

Sensei is an IDE plugin for IntelliJ that performs on the fly code analysis. This behavior is configurable with what we call 'recipes', which are contained in 'cookbooks'. Existing cookbooks can be found at the Sensei Hub.

  • Topic guides explain key topics and concepts from a high level. Understanding these is required to be able to work effectively with Sensei.

  • Reference guides contain the technical documentation and explanations for all the possible configuration options.

  • Troubleshooting contains useful information that helps to understand why Sensei isn't behaving as expected.
