Improvement of HTML5 support in PhpStorm & WebStorm

Recently, we’ve added a number of new features that simplify HTML5 development. Here’s a short list of their highlights:

  1. Support of HTML custom data attributes. The attributes with names that begin with data- can be used to store some custom information. WebStorm/PhpStorm IDE provides completion for such attributes when they’re used in a project:
  2. Support for Web SQL Database JavaScript API:
  3. We also added a new setting Default HTML language level ( File | Settings | Resources ). If you switch it to HTML5, IDE will consider every *.html file without specified doctype as HTML5 file, so validation and code completion (including completion and validation of custom data attributes) will work correctly:

    @Michael Says, We don’t currently have any plans to include into IntelliJ IDEA 9.0.x, but it definitely will be available in IDEA X.

  6. In my latest WebStorm 1.0.2 there’s no such setting: Default HTML language level ( File | Settings | Resources ). There’re only 2 lists: external resources and ignored resources.
