While the team puts the finishing touches on the features of the new version detailed in our previous blog posts, we’d like to take a moment to draw your attention to enhancements that hold particular value for web development.

Take a look! 

Web development 

Improvements for TypeScript

IntelliJ IDEA 2023.3 Beta 2 solves some of the inconsistencies with adding import type statements. We’ve added the option to configure the usage of the TypeScript import type statement or type specifier when importing a type. We’ve also improved the behavior for the exports field of package.json for TypeScript files.

Improvements for Vue 3

We’ve added support for defineSlots, providing completion and navigation for the slot name, as well as rename refactoring. We’ve also introduced completion support for properties with defineExpose. In IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate 2023.3, required imports for components will be added based on the name specified by the defineOptions function.

Improved Angular support

We’ve improved support for strict template type checking in Angular templates. We’ve also supported the new control-flow syntax from v17 and signals, including live templates like signal, computed, and effect. There are also new quick-fixes available with Alt+Enter. For example, you can create @Input and @Output properties from a component template

New functionality for testing JavaScript

IntelliJ IDEA 2023.3 Beta 2 brings new capabilities for testing your JavaScript code. Cypress and Playwright tests are now automatically detected and can be run from a Run icon in the editor. We’ve also introduced initial support for the native Node.js test runner. Tests declared with the node:test API are now recognized, enabling running and debugging directly from your code without extra packages.

These are the updates we wanted to share this week! For the full list of implemented changes, refer to the release notes
