This screencast shows how you can work with this development stack in WebStorm.
WebStorm supports each of the MEAN projects with a variety of tools (including some open-source plugins) providing you with a complete experience when developing an app . Here is a list of features that could help you and links to our previous posts on them:
WebStorm 8 now helps you to run Grunt tasks.
Simply right-click on your GruntFile, select Open Grunt Console, and you’ll now be able to double-click a task in the Grunt tool window to run it.
In order to get started, you’ll want to install Grunt’s command line interface (CLI) globally. You may need to use sudo (for OSX, *nix, BSD etc) or run your command shell as Administrator (for Windows) to do this (you can find more on Getting started with Grunt on gruntjs.com.
WebStorm 8.0.3 bug fix update (build 135.937) is available now.
You’ll get an automatic update notification. If you are using WebStorm 8.0.2, you could use a patch-update. If you’re using earlier versions of WebStorm, you should download WebStorm installation file for your OS on the product website and reinstall WebStorm.
This update addresses an issue with AngularJS interpolation and some other bugs in various subsystems. The full list is available in the release notes.
Please report any bugs and submit feature requests on our issue tracker.
In this short blog post we would like to put together all the tutorials we have so far on Node.js development workflow with WebStorm and other JetBrains’ IDEs.
Hope that it would help you to get started with Node.js in WebStorm and master your workflow.

We on the WebStorm team have drafted a WebStorm 9 development roadmap that we would like to share with you and get your feedback.
Please note the developed roadmap is not a finalized list of features that you’ll see in WebStorm 9. It’s pretty flexible and may be subject to changes. Furthermore, we haven’t included improvements in the existing features that we are planning to work on.
WebStorm 9 is planned for release in late 2014. Our Early Access Program will start a couple of months before the release.
We are going to finish our work on Yo integration (WEB-6744) and improvements in CSS3 support that we weren’t able to finish for WebStorm 8 release.
You can see the full list of features on the roadmap draft.
There is one more thing that we are currently investigating and would like your opinion on: possible PhoneGap integration. If you’re using it, how WebStorm could improve your experience with building mobile apps with PhoneGap? Please share your thoughts.
We’ll be very happy to hear your comments, idea and suggestions here or on our issue tracker where you can vote for issues or submit new feature requests.
In this post we’d like to address the some of the most frequent questions we had during the webinar. Continue reading →
WebStorm 8 includes integration with Bower, a package manager for the web. Bower allows you to manage your project’s front-end dependencies. You can read more about it on the project website at http://bower.io.
WebStorm helps you search and install new packages available through Bower’s registry in the IDE UI, as well easily update and delete packages.
Let’s have a look at a common workflow with Bower in WebStorm.
What is the difference between Orem, Utah, USA; Munich, Germany; Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia; and St. Petersburg, Russia? Well, they are thousands of kilometers apart, span 3 climate zones from continental to subtropical, and only one of them is home to kangaroos.
What do these places share in common? They are all home to the team behind WebStorm 8.
Today this is all possible. Please welcome spy-js, a new feature of WebStorm 8 that makes all these tricks possible—and much more.
Before going further, I recommend that you watch this 7-minute video, if you haven’t already, to get a general idea of what spy-js is about.
In this post we’ll walk through the tool’s features in more detail, and I’ll share some tips and tricks to improve your experience with spy-js. I’m going to cover a range of topics, including but not limited to:
WebStorm 8.0.1 bug fix update (build 135.621) is available now.
If you’re using WebStorm 8.0, you’ll get a notification about available update or you can check for updates manually and make a patch-update. Or, if you like, you can download a fresh installer on the WebStorm site.
This update is focused on various fixes and improvements including:
improvements in Grunt console UI;
full support for Sass 3.3;
improvements in support for TypeScript 1.0, and more.
WebStorm 8.0.1 also adds a new feature: now you can run your node-webkit applications in one click and debug them using WebStorm’s built-in debugger.
Create new Run/Debug configuration of node-webkit type, select the path to the app folder and specify the path to the node-webkit interpreter. After that simply click Run to start an app or set breakpoints in the JS code and start a debugging session.
We welcome bug reports and feature requests on our issue tracker.
