Early Access Program

PhpStorm 2019.1 EAP #7

PhpStorm 2019.1 EAP build 191.6014.13 is now available!

This build delivers support for click on the @inheritDoc tag, improvements for move function to class refactoring, fixes for PHP, and it includes all the fresh new updates from the WebStorm team and IntelliJ Platform!

You can download it on the website or via JetBrains’ Toolbox App. Or, if you have an earlier PhpStorm 2019.1 EAP build installed, you will soon get a notification in the IDE about a patch update.

Click on @inheritdoc

The inline PHPDoc tag @inheritDoc is used in a description to import the description of a parent element, even if the child element already has a description. If you Cmd+Click (Ctrl+Click) on the tag in PhpStorm 2019.1, it will take you to the inherited docblock.


Refactoring: Move Multiple Functions At Once

When dealing with legacy apps or projects that have a technical debt to manage, you’ll probably find a file with a bunch of functions. You may want to organize this a bit and move the functions to some classes. With PhpStorm 2019.1 you can move several functions to a class at the same time and the IDE will handle updating the usages for you. Select functions in the Structure View and call Refactor -> Move…


Updates for Package.json Support

Our folks from WebStorm team have implemented a couple of neat features for package.json.
To start with, you’ll get autocompletion for scripts: PhpStorm now provides suggestions for the available commands. You can see a list of commands provided by the installed packages (from the node_modules/.bin folder). After typing in the node, the IDE will offer completion for folders and files that you can run.


There is also a helpful tooltip with package version info. This shows you what range of versions could be installed when running npm install or yarn install. Press Cmd/Ctrl and hover over the version to see the information.
