WebStorm 7 build 130.958; Elements tab

Today we’ve released a new EAP build of WebStorm 7, build numer 130.958. The biggest new feature in this build is the “Elements” tab in the JavaScript debugger, showing the live contents of the page being edited.

In addition to that, the new WebStorm now includes the TextMate Bundles plugin, improves support for Web Components, brings a couple of nifty new features for dealing with images encoded as data: URIs, and resolves a number of low-level issues with the JavaScript code insight logic.

We have also merged the remote and local run configurations for JavaScript debugging; now there’s just a single configuration type. Your existing run configurations will be automatically converted when you install the new build.

WebStorm build 130.958 is available for download on the EAP page, and if you’re already running the previous WebStorm 7 EAP build, you can use the built-in patch-based update. You can also check the full release notes for the new build.

    Hi!

    Congrats for this feature. Just a quick question, will this be integrated in PHPStorm as well?

  2. Babar says:

    That is excellent feature, because we don’t have open inspector in separate tab to browse dom. However I am not sure if we can lookup element using mouse just like browser inspector through elements tab?

      It’s much similar to browser inspector. You can look through the DOM in Elements tab, the selected elements will be highlighted in the browser.

    I downloaded Webstorm 7 for linux only to find out that it does NOT accept the license key I have for Webstorm 6 even though it was purchased by my employer only this last August (2013).
    Webstorm 6 ‘register…’ window says: Entitled for free updates and upgrades until August 06, 2014.
