Web IDE EAP (build 94.48)

Alexey Gopachenko

This build is targeted to to bring some more happiness to you for the holidays so we focused on removing some annoyances from editor and adding several most requested features. Full listing available in Web IDE issue tracker.

In the editor you will experience less bugs related to code formatting and less “false positive” warnings from parameter inspection in different cases.

The most notable change is that PHP run configurations are rearranged a bit. From now you can run and debug both local command line and local or remote web applications.

To use PHP Console configuration, first specify the path to your PHP installation in Settings | PHP page. Then all you need is to right-click a PHP file in Project view or in the editor and choose ‘Create <filename.php>‘.

PHP on Server requires more configuration. First, add Remote Host in the Settings | Remote Hosts page and specify Web root URL and the (S)FTP configuration (the latter is optional but useful if you want your project files to be uploaded automatically on run). Then, go to Remote Deployment page to make this host active and configure the mappings between local and server paths (and deployment paths if you’re going to upload anything).

Once you’ve set this up, your run configuration is accessible from the context menu. To turn auto-uploading, enable the ‘Upload to <servername>‘ checkbox at the bottom of the run configuration editor page and press ‘‘ button to choose the paths to upload.

Note: please review your existing run configurations to be sure all the parameters are still in place.

Also there are some improvements in Remote Host View. With this EAP you may create folders and delete the items right from the server tree. From now the mapped paths are highlighted so you can easily see the parts of the server tree you’re working on. And the last one: once deployment mappings are configured, navigation from- and to the deployed items is extremely easy with Show In… action (Alt+F1 on Windows). Also, double-click on a deployed remote file will open the the corresponding local one in the editor.

Our infrastructure is getting ready for WebIDE and starting from this build you should receive notifications about fresh EAP builds (see IDE Settings | Update) and you will see only compatible plugins in the plugin list (IDE Settings | Plugins).

    Just to make things clear: ‘PHP console’ and ‘PHP on server’ run configurations are always available in the configurations list. To make them suggested in the context menu you need to set up PHP home (for the console), or remote host + path mappings. Until you specify these settings existing configurations will stay invalid.

    Do you plan on adding SASS or LESS support for WebIDE?

    @Jakub Eventually, yes. However it’s not scheduled yet.
