WebStorm 2016.3 EAP, 163.3512: Docker support, new fonts

The new WebStorm 2016.3 EAP build (163.3512) is now available! You can download it here or, if you have installed the previous WebStorm 2016.3 EAP build (163.3094), you should soon get a notification in the IDE about a patch update (unfortunately, there is no patch for Windows this time).

Using Docker with Node.js apps

WebStorm 2016.3 EAP brings integrations with Docker: you can now run and debug Node.js apps running in Docker using a Node.js run/debug configuration in WebStorm. WebStorm can also help you quickly bootstrap Docker for your app. Find more details on the integration in this blog post.


San Francisco font for OS X

On OS X the San Francisco font is now used for all the menus and tool windows both in the default light and dark themes.


And by the way, the native file chooser is now back. Sorry for the inconvenience before.

Fira Code font

The IDE now bundles the FiraCode font that supports ligatures. You can set it as your editor font in Preferences | Editor | Colors & Fonts | Font.


Flow tool window

When using Flow, you can now see all the errors in the current file and in the project displayed in the tools window in addition to the editor.


We’ve also added a new live template: type flow and hit Tab to expand it into // @flow.

In addition to that, the Flow configuration has been moved to Preferences | Languages & Frameworks | JavaScript. There you can enable Flow for all *.js files and specify the path to Flow package.

You can find a more detailed list of issues addressed in this EAP build in the Release notes.
