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
  • reStructuredText

Please report any issues on GitHub.
