Built-in Local Terminal in PhpStorm 7

We already have a built-in SSH terminal for PhpStorm 7 EAP. The latest drop adds a related feature: the Tools | Open Terminal… menu gives us access to an embedded Local Terminal!

The built-in Local Terminal comes with coloring, as you can see from the above screenshot. Let’s try vim inside our IDE to edit php.ini:

We can copy/paste from the Local Terminal and open multiple sessions if needed. Don’t worry, it works on every operating system supported by PhpStorm.

Give PhpStorm 7 EAP a try and let us hear your thoughts in the issue tracker, through the comments below or in our forums!

Please also check more information about built-in SSH terminal and remote tools.

Develop with pleasure!

P.S.: This feature is also available in PyCharm and WebStorm.
