You don't need to create a .ebert.yml file to start reviewing your code, it can be automatically built by Ebert by checking the directory structure and code found in the repository, ignoring known directories (like test, spec, public or vendor) and enabling recommended engines for your project.

After the review is finished you can download the respective configuration file from the review’s page being able to customize it as you want.
