Early Access Program Features News

Improved CSS, Extract Vue Component, and More on JavaScript in the Updated RubyMine 2018.1 EAP

Hey all,

RubyMine 2018.1 EAP3 (181.3741.30) is now available. With this build we’d like to tell you about the recent JavaScript improvements that the RubyMine 2018.1 Early Access Program inherits from WebStorm (our other IDE for JavaScript).

Improved CSS

You will find the updated list of SVG properties and values, as well as code completion and validation for their values that were not available before:

Previously, when you cmd-clicked on a class name in the HTML file that had a link to a compiled CSS file, you were navigated to a class in the linked CSS file.

Improved support for dynamic imports with import()

Code completion is now available for the properties of an imported module. You can also jump back to its definition with Cmd+click:

Better TypeScript support

TypeScript support features new quick-fixes called “Enclose in type guard” and “Prefix with type guard”. They are shown when a used method is not available for one of the types in a union type. To see the suggestions, press Alt+Enter when the cursor is on the highlighted code:

Extract Vue components

With this new intention, you can now easily extract a new Vue component from an existing one. No more copying and pasting!

Among other improvements, the Run Anything that we announced earlier can now remove recent commands. Simply press Shift+Backspace:

We’re still polishing the new Run Anything action, and will provide more updates on it in future posts. If you happen to face any issues with Run Anything, please report them to the related ticket, or submit a new one.
