Snyk for IDEs
IDE integrations allow you to use the functionality of Snyk in your Integrated Development Environment.
The following Snyk plugins and extensions are available.
These plugins and extensions are referred to as Snyk Security and as Snyk for IDEs.
You can download any Snyk Security plugin or extension free of charge and use it with a free Snyk account or a paid plan. There are limits on the number of tests available with a free plan.
When you install the plugin or extension the latest version of the Snyk CLI is downloaded. You can then use it to scan your Snyk Project locally.
Snyk Security plugins and extensions find and fix security vulnerabilities and issues in your Snyk Projects early in the development lifecycle. This helps individual developers, open source contributors, and code maintainers to pass security reviews, avoid costly fixes later in development, and reduce time to develop and deliver secure code.
Typically scans take place rapidly. The results show issues with context, impact, and fix guidance in line with code in your IDE, where you can apply a fix.
The Snyk IDE plugins and extensions rely on the Snyk Vulnerability Database. For more information see Snyk Vulnerability Database in the docs.
Snyk Code artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities are available in the Snyk IDE plugins and extensions. For more information about Snyk Code capabilities see Snyk Code and Snyk Code - Benefits and Capabilities. These articles explain the machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities in more detail: Exploring the advanced technologies behind Snyk Code and Modernizing SAST rules maintenance to catch vulnerabilities faster.
