Early Access Program

WebStorm 2017.1 EAP, 171.2272: Standard code style, completion in package.json

Please welcome a new Early Access Preview build for WebStorm 2017.1 (171.2272.15)! You can download it here and install it side-by-side with your current stable WebStorm version, or if you have the previous EAP build, you should soon get a notification in the IDE about a patch update.

Completion for dependencies in package.json

Adding new project dependencies to package.json became easier: WebStorm now provides code completion for package names and shows info about the latest versions.



Support for JavaScript Standard Style

WebStorm now adds support for JavaScript Standard Style, a popular JavaScript code style.

Now you can configure WebStorm code style options for JavaScript to follow the main rules Standard declares and they will be applied when you type the code or reformat it.

For that go to Preferences | Editor | Code style | JavaScript and click Set from Predefined Style – Standard and the style will replace your current scheme.


Since Standard is based on ESLint, you can use Standard via WebStorm’s ESLint integration. If you open a new project and Standard is listed in package.json, WebStorm will notice that and will enable linting with Standard automatically. WebStorm will also suggest to set Standard code style for formatting (also if you have ESLint with Standard plugin).


You can also enable Standard in the ESLint Preferences (Languages & Frameworks | JavaScript | Code quality tools | ESLint): you need to select a path to Standard package installed globally or locally in the project.

You can find the full list of issues addressed in this EAP build in the Release notes.
