    One thing that i noticed is the code completion which is not actually working good, i am talking about CSS, even thought i wanna write let say the property: color: #fff;

    When i type col and then tab, its displaying: columns:;

    But overall its an amazing IDE :)

    You say NPM support in 7. Nothing on www on that.
    In 6 it was a command line add on.
    How do I pull up NPM in v7 and what can I do w/ it?

    • Ekaterina Prigara says:

      Hi Vic,
      in the main toolbar there is Node.js Settings icon, it will lead you the list of all your global and local node modules installed. In the same window clicking on Install you can browse and install new modules.

    WS7 looks brilliant. Thanks and great work!

    Can we expect these new features to be rolled into IDEA 13, or as plugins for IDEA 12.1.x, or will they only live in WebStorm?

    • Ekaterina Prigara says:

      We are happy to hear that!
      All these features will be available in IDEA 13 out of the box or as plugins.

    Looks like Jetbrains has stopped handing out discount coupons for personal licenses for Webstorm. Can we expect any discount coupons for Thanksgiving, Christmas or, not at all?
