Sensei alpha version¶

The alpha version is a constantly updating in-development version of Sensei. This version will receive every update before it gets rolled out into the stable version.

Installing the alpha version can be done by adding a plugin repository in the IDE's settings which links to a seperate release channel on the IntelliJ marketplace.

To add this repository, go to IntelliJ IDEA | Preferences | Plugins (macOS) or File | Settings | Plugins (Windows and Linux). Press the cogwheel and select the Manage Plugin Repositories… option.

Add the following repository URL: https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugins/dev/14015-sensei-by-secure-code-warrior-

When this is done, the plugin can be installed or updated just the same as the normal version would be installed. After refreshing the list of plugins, the Sensei plugin should show up with a version that is ending in either -alpha.X or -rc.X (where X can be any number).
