WebStorm 2016.3 EAP, 163.6957: Protractor, TypeScript quick fixes

Another week – another WebStorm 2016.3 EAP (163.6957) build! You can download it here, or if you have the EAP build (163.6512) from the last week installed, you should soon get a notification in the EAP about a patch update.

Integration with Protractor

Protractor is an end-to-end test frameworks developed by the Angular team. And you can now run and debug tests with Protractor right from WebStorm. Test results will be shown in a tool window in the IDE. You can filter the results and see only the failing tests. You can also quickly jump from the list of tests to the test source.


To get started right-click (or hit Ctrl-Shift-R on macOS or Ctrl-Shift-F10 on Windows and Linux) on the protractor.conf.js file in the project view or in the editor and select Run ‘protractor.conf.js’. Please make sure first that you have Protractor installed globally on your machine.

You can use the same run/debug configuration to debug the tests.

More quick fixes for TypeScript

WebStorm now makes quick-fix options provided by the TypeScript 2.1 language service available in the editor together with the WebStorm’s own quick fixes and intentiones.

Hit Alt-Enter on the highlighted code and see suggestions to automatically fix it (note that quick fixes are available only for some types of errors).


WebStorm also added the support for TypeScript 2.0.6.

Completion for React Native StyleSheet properties

When working with the React Native apps, WebStorm will now provide code completion (and color preview) for properties inside StyleSheet.
