If you start wallaby.js without a valid license, it should display a popup with a link or a button to activate your license key. Once you purchase a license, you just need to paste the license key and click Activate button if there’s one, or press Enter if there’s no button.

License key

Within few minutes after you make your wallaby.js license purchase, you should receive an email with the license key (or license keys if you are purchasing multiple Company Seat licenses).

For example, for a personal license the email content should look like:

Thank you for your order. Your wallaby.js license key:

abc

Regards,
Wallaby.js team

The license key in this case is abc.

For two company seat licenses the email content should look like:

Thank you for your order. Your wallaby.js license keys:

Key #xxxxx:
abc

Key #yyyyy:
def

Regards,
Wallaby.js team

The first license key in this case is abc and the second one is def.

Please note that real license keys are much longer.

Expired license

You may calculate the price and renew your existing license(s) to include 12 more months of free updates, or upgrade your existing specific editor license to ‘Freedom’ (also includes 12 more months of free updates) using our upgrade and renewal calculator.

If you would not like to renew your expired license, you may need to download the latest version covered by your license for Visual Studio or IntelliJ platform based IDEs (such as WebStorm, etc.), then you may use our latest covered version form to get the download link for the wallaby.js version covered by your current license. Other editors will manage the fallback to the latest covered license automatically.

If your new license key doesn’t work

Double check that you are pasting the full key. Sometimes only a part of the key is selected/copied from the order fulfilment email and it’s the most common reason why the key is rejected. If someone else from your company had sent you the key that doesn’t work, please ask them to double check that they have sent you the full key from the order fulfilment email. If your purchased license key is not a Freedom license key, please also make sure that you have purchased the key for the right editor/IDE.

If after following the instructions above the key still doesn't work for you, please contact us and send the key and the version of the editor/IDE that you are trying to use the key with.
