This page provides a step-by-step guide to getting up and running with Vale Server.

Step 1: Installing a style

The first step you'll need to take before using Vale Server is to ensure that you have styles available somewhere on your machine. You have a few options for doing this:

  1. You can use the dashboard to install pre-made style from our community-maintained library.

  2. You can copy or clone your own styles into the default StylesPath (select Browse Styles... from the context menu).

  3. You can specify a custom StylesPath that already contains your styles in a project (see Step 2).

Step 2: Creating a project

After you've installed a style (or styles), you need to create a project. Cick on the Preferences... option from the context menu and follow the instructions on creating a new project.

Step 3: Using a client application

The final step is to install one of our third-party integrations. These allow you to see suggestions based on your active project while you write.
