Important! WebStorm EAP builds are not fully tested and might be unstable.

Here are some of the highlights of WebStorm 2018.3 EAP #7 (build 183.3975.16). For the full list of issues fixed in this update, see the Release Notes.

Support for Vuetify

WebStorm now provides code completion for components from Vuetify version 1.1 or above. Type the name of a component name in the template section of the .vue file or press Ctrl-Space for a list of all the components and then select the one you need.

AngularJS improvements

We know that many people still use AngularJS, that’s why we’ve fixed the problem which was most voted for that relates to the AngularJS support in WebStorm: completion and resolve for $ctrl or the name defined, using the controllerAs property in the template.

Move ruleset to another file

Want to move a set of rulesets from one style sheet file to another? Now you can use the Move refactoring for that – select one or several rulesets in a CSS, SCSS, Sass, or Less file, then press F6 or select Move

Improvements in JSON support

We’ve made some improvements to make editing JSON files easier. First, WebStorm will add or remove commas when you move lines in JSON with the Move statement up or down actions (Cmd/Ctrl-Shift-Up/Down).

Second, now when you add a new line inside an object, the IDE will add a comma.

Third, you can now use the Surround with action (Alt-Cmd/Ctrl-T) in JSON to surround items with quotes, curly or square braces.

Last but not least, now when you paste in JSON, WebStorm will automatically escape symbols.
