Early Access Program

WebStorm 2016.2 Early Access Preview

We are happy to announce the start of the Early Access Preview for WebStorm 2016.2, the next big update for WebStorm. You can download WebStorm 2016.2 EAP, build 162.74, right now. You can install it side by side with WebStorm 2016.1 or any previous WebStorm version. No active subscription is required.

While we don’t have that many big new features to show you right now, we hope you’ll still enjoy some of the improvements and fixes that have already landed in WebStorm 2016.2.

Coding assistance for props in React and more

WebStorm can now understand component properties defined using propTypes and provide code completion and resolve to them.


Another nice improvement for React developers is that now WebStorm will automatically add {} instead of “” for React events like onClick, onChange, etc. Moreover, the IDE now understands React non-DOM attributes: key, ref and dangerouslySetInnerHTML.

There’s also a bunch of improvements in React support in TypeScript, like auto imports for components and coding assistance for components properties.

Support for Angular 2 Release candidate

WebStorm 2016.2 EAP brings updates to the Angular 2 support: it now understands variable declarations with let inside the structural directives such as *ngFor and provides proper auto imports  with paths starting with @angular for Angular 2 RC.


Improvements in TypeScript support

In TypeScript you can now enjoy a smarter support for enums.


Single vs double quotes in HTML attributes

You can now configure whether you want IDE to add single, double or no quotes at all when autocompleting attributes in HTML and JSX. The option is available in Preferences | Editor | Code style | HTML – Other – Generated quote marks.


Code coverage for Dart

Run with Coverage option is now available for the Dart command-line app run configuration. It’s not yet supported for Dart Test because of the Pub tool limitation.
In addition to that, you can now use other language injection in string literals and navigate through the Call hierarchy for Dart code.

The bigger list of issues addressed in this EAP build you can see on our issue tracker.
