## Intellij IDEA: Build/make when intellij focus is lost

2014-08-12

I remember an option to automatically build the current project when the focus on the idea windows is lost (for example you switch from intellij to your browser to test your webapp), but I can't find it (idea 12.1.6).
Do you know where could I enable this feature ?

### Solution

IntelliJ can build automatically, after each change (not just when the focus is lost).
See: File --> Settings --> Compiler --> Make project automatically
