Install PhpStorm with Snaps
Exciting news for Linux users: you can now use snaps to install PhpStorm builds. Snaps will update your app automatically, and you’ll always have a fresh PhpStorm build right out of the oven. Snaps are really easy to install and use. On Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or later, snaps come pre-installed. On other Linux distributions, you will need to install snaps first, as described here.
We currently distribute PhpStorm on the Edge and Stable channel where we store our EAP and stable builds, correspondingly. To install PhpStorm EAP via Snaps from the command-line, run the following command:
sudo snap install phpstorm --classic --edge
To install stable:
sudo snap install phpstorm --classic
To run PhpStorm, run this snap command:
As an alternative, you can always use Toolbox App to install and update PhpStorm.
We would like to know what you think about snaps. Add your comments here or tweet @phpstorm. Your feedback is welcome!
