Today we are making WebStorm 7.0.1 available.
It’s a minor update for WebStorm 7.0 that we released almost a month ago. It brings dozens of fixes and improvements based on your feedback on our issue tracker. Here is a full list of issues that were addressed in this update.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t come as a patch for WebStorm 7.0: you need to download the installation file on WebStorm web site and make a fresh install. All your settings will be saved.
One of nice improvements available in WebStorm 7.0.1 is the Emmet preview in HTML.
To enable it go to Settings → Emmet and enable Enable abbreviation preview.
3 weeks after WebStorm 7 release we would like you to try its minor update – WebStorm 7.0.1.
Based on your valuable feedback on our issue tracker we made a lot of fixes and improvements. That is why before making this update available for everyone we first introduce it as a Release Candidate. It requires active license.
You can download WebStorm 7.0.1 RC on EAP page. The Release notes are available here.
Some notable improvements in WebStorm 7.0.1 include:
improved TypeScript 0.9.1 support with more than 20 fixes, code style configuration and new error messages
With Microsoft’s Windows Azure Mobile Services, we can build a back-end for iOS, Android, HTML, Windows Phone and Windows 8 apps that supports storing data, authentication, push notifications across all platforms, and more. There are client libraries available for all these platforms which can be used when developing in your IDE of choice, for example AppCode, Google Android Studio, or Visual Studio. On the server-side, we can write Node.js code.
In this post, we won’t go into the innards of Windows Azure Mobile Services. Instead, let’s focus on how we can use WebStorm to build the server-side code which has to be written in Node.js. Note that the workflow described applies to development of any Node.js app: VCS integration, the REST Client plugin and NodeUnit test integration can be used in other projects as well.

Have you been wondering how to use WebStorm like a real pro? What are the “secret” keys that make lines of code appear in a second?
In this webinar JetBrains’ evangelist John Lindquist will share the WebStorm tricks that only come from years of experience. He will cover all the need-to-know keyboard shortcuts and WebStorm customization and workflow tips that could really boost your productivity and take your web development experience in WebStorm to a whole new level.

Now you can choose either to use JSTestDriver to run your test in WebStorm (learn about the JSTestDriver plugin), or to try Karma.
Here is some basic info about Karma integration in WebStorm:
It uses a local server to run the tests in the selected browsers installed on your computer;
It can run tests written with the use of Jasmine, QUnit, or Mocha, or write a simple adapter to use any other framework you like;
Though this change mainly affects the debugger’s backend, WebStorm 7 users will definitely notice improvements in its performance, as well as some very useful updates. You can quickly learn about these in the screencast or read this post for more details.
