RedPen is a proofreading tool to help writers or programmers who write technical documents or manuals that need to adhere to a writing standard.

The plugin validates text files with RedPen by adding a 'RedPen' inspection, which is enabled by default after installation.

Some errors can be fixed via quick fixes (Alt + Enter)

Language and variant are autodetected per file, however you can manually override them in IDEA status bar.

RedPen settings can be configured and imported/exported using native RedPen config format. All settings are stored per project.

Custom RedPen dictionaries can be put to .idea/redpen directory and JavaScriptValidator scripts can be put to .idea/redpen/js.

The following file types are supported (provided you have necessary plugins installed):

  • Plain text
  • Properties
  • Markdown
  • AsciiDoc
  • Re:VIEW
  • LaTeX

Please report any issues on GitHub.

It may be due to beta version of Kotlin bundled with IDEA 15.0.2. Kotlin 1.0 is a bit incompatibe with beta versions, so we had to change our code accordingly. Please update IDEA to 15.0.4, which includes Kotlin 1.0 and let us know if it works for you.
Latest version crashes my IntelliJ 15.0.2 Enterprise Edition. Only recourse is to disable
