Script Monkey is an IntelliJ plugin that helps achieve the power & flexibilities of JavaScript scripting in a plugin environment. In other words, it helps Java achieve the best of both worlds.

Thanks to the embedded Nashorn & Scripting API it is an all-in-one plugin which means, anything that was possible only by writing a plugin using Java can be done using plugin-scripts(simple javascript code). And, any tasks that makes more sense to be scripted can be implemented using this tool.

If you are familiar with Rhino JavaScript engine you can review the differences between Rhino and Nashorn in the Rhino Migration Guide.
