Webinar Recording: Using WebStorm for Building Angular Apps
In this webinar, Victor Savkin, a long time WebStorm user and Angular core contributor, walks you through his IDE setup and shares his tips on using the IDE efficiently when working on Angular apps and on big projects like the Angular framework itself.
Here are some questions from the webinar Q&A session:
Q: Is Angular and TypeScript support available in IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate, PhpStorm, PyCharm Professional and RubyMine?
A: Yes, all WebStorm features are available in these IDEs. Make sure you have AngularJS plugin installed in Preferences | Plugins.
Q: Where can I download WebStorm 2017.1 Early access preview? What new Angular features does it have?
A: You can download WebStorm 2017.1 EAP here and install it side-by-side with the stable version. WebStorm 2017.1 brings integration with Angular language service. You can find more information about it in this blog post.
Q: How can we format the imports to use space inside curly brackets and also use single quotes instead of two?
A: You can configure that in Preferences | Editor | Code style | TypeScript – Spaces – ES6 imports and Other – Quotes style.
Q: How to enable TSLint? Is it possible to see all TSLint errors?
A: You can enable TSLint in Preferences | Languages & Frameworks | TypeScript | TSLint. You will see errors from TSLint in the editor. To lint all files in the project select Run inspection by name in the Code menu and type TSLint. You’ll see the results in a new tool window. Please note that these results won’t be updated automatically as you make changes in the project.
