    Are you guys planning better Flow support? I have switched to Atom in my flow project because of the very minimal Flow support of Webstorm. It is a hard choice because Webstorm does so much other things much better than Atom (code formatting, git integration, debugging, quick fixing, import suggests, etc. etc. etc. ).

    But Atom’s flow support is just in a way other level than Webstorm. It understand my code. Webstorm can not even parse a Flow type definition file. And the completion, hover information, and warnings of Atom make a very good coding experience.

    Thanks for the great product, would love if you could consider putting more effort in Flow, it is a really nice type system, that seems to get more popular lately.

    + 1 for the better Flow support, should move back to Atom + Nuclide for ReactJS/Native development since I’m using Flow checks a lot…

    Also, I would value ability to choose Flow support as an addition to the JavaScript language version (like React JSX).

    Thank you.

      You can now enable support for the Flow syntax just like for JXS in Preferences | Languages and Frameworks | JavaScript.
      We are working on further Flow integration. Stay tuned!
