Documentation Wiki

A detailed documentation of plugin features can be found on the Wiki of GitHub.


How to use the plugin

All features are directly incorporated into the IntelliJ IDE. Therefore, by familiarizing yourself with IntelliJ IDEA, you will automatically know how to use the plugin for Mathematica code, because it works consistently for all programming languages. You will find a lot of documentation on the official Jetbrains site, but to get a quick start, I suggest the following

  • Read through the Quick Start you find in the official documentation
  • Read at least one time through the Keymap (OS X Keymap)
  • Click some minutes trough the Tip of the Day dialog which shows up when you open IDEA or click on Help → Tip of the Day
