WebStorm 2018.3 EAP #4: Git Submodules, Live Edit without Chrome extension
It’s time for the fourth WebStorm 2018.3 Early Preview build!
If you’re unfamiliar with our Early Access Program or if you want to catch up on all the new features that were introduced last week, check out the previous EAP blog posts.
Toolbox App is the easiest way to get the EAP builds. You can also get notified right from the IDE when a new EAP build is available: go to Preferences | Appearance & Behavior | System Settings | Updates and select “Automatically check updates for Early Access Program”.
Important! WebStorm EAP builds are not fully tested and might be unstable.
Here are some of the highlights of WebStorm 2018.3 EAP #4 (build 183.2940.11).
WebStorm 2018.3 now supports working with Git submodules!
When you clone a repository that has submodules, WebStorm will clone the root repo and all its submodules. Moreover, when you update your project, all the submodules will now be correctly updated according to their state. The Diff, History, and Conflict resolution now all work for submodule folders too.
Live Edit without Chrome extension
Multiline code snippets in Find and Replace
The Find and Replace in Path dialogs now have better support for multiline code snippets: paste the code you want to search for or type the query – when you need to add a new line, click the icon on the right-hand side of the input field or press Cmd/Ctrl-Shift-Enter. Please note that search is indent-sensitive.
