We’re pleased to announce our new plugin for JetBrains IDEs, making it easier for developers to find and fix security issues as they code! Within seconds, the plugin provides a list of all the different types of issues identified, in three categories:
- Open source security - known vulnerabilities in both the direct and in-direct (transitive) open source dependencies you are pulling into the project.
- Code Security - security weaknesses identified in your own code.
- Code Quality - code quality issues in your own code.
The plugin is easy to install just like any other JetBrains plugin, directly from within your IDE or from the JetBrains marketplace. Beneath the surface the powerful Snyk AI engine ensures both the speed of executed scans as well as the accuracy of results, guaranteeing an extremely fast feedback loop for developers.
Oh, and did we mention the plugin is totally free?! Any Snyk user using JetBrains IntelliJ and WebStorm can download the plugin and start scanning the code for issues, including free users. 🚀
