htaccess support available in PhpStorm & WebStorm 2.1

Since first PhpStorm/WebStorm 2.1 EAP build we provide support for “.htaccess” Apache config files. Initially available features are:

  • Syntax highlighting
  • Common htaccess-directives names completion with quick info about module that contains it
  • Quick documentation lookup (Ctrl+Q on Linux & Windows and Ctrl+J on Mac default keymaps). You can quickly read what particular directive does and what syntax should be used for it right in editor. Also you can get full info about it in Apache’s online reference by Shift-F1
  • Initial URL-rewriting engine support. URLs in your project are now resolved using list of rewrite rules declared in your htaccess files. Also we automatically inject regexp language in RewriteRule’s arguments

We already received (and fixed for next EAP) first set of bug reports – including sub section support and looking for more feedback.

Develop with pleasure!
