Configuration for the use of aliases and path mappings in imports

It is now possible to configure how aliases and path mappings will be used when adding imports automatically in JavaScript and TypeScript files. If you want to use relative paths when importing a symbol in the nearby file and use path mappings or aliases everywhere else in your app, you can select Only in files outside specified paths in the new option Use path mappings/aliases in Preferences / Settings | Editor | Code Style | JavaScript or TypeScript – Imports.

Other improvements and fixes in WebStorm 2019.1.1:

  • Support for Cucumber step definitions written using strings (WEB-15600)
  • New Reload in Browser action in the JavaScript debug tool window (WEB-26400)
  • Performance problem when editing some TypeScript types was fixed (WEB-38026)
  • Jump from the terminal to the editor for Esc (IDEA-116221)
  • Improved font rendering on macOS (JBR-1174)

    ‘Click to update snapshot’ link/button is missing for my jest tests…
    This was a very handy feature !

      Any chance you use the `snapshotResolver` in your Jest config? If that’s the case, then please follow:

        I use `snapshotSerializers`. Tried running jest configuration both with and without it, the result is the same. ‘Click to update snapshot’ link/button is not showing.

          We need more information to investigate the problem. Can you please contact our tech support or create a new issue on and let us know what IDE and Jest versions you’re using, where the snapshot files are located in your project relative to the test files. Your Jest configuration would also be helpful. Thanks!
