WebStorm 2020.2 Release Candidate Is Here
With the release date quickly approaching, we’re happy to unveil the release candidate (RC) for WebStorm 2020.2! Unlike previous EAP builds, this one requires you to have an active WebStorm license, otherwise it will install and run as a 30-day free trial.
Let’s take a brief look at the major improvements available in the RC version of WebStorm 2020.2.
- Make Prettier the default formatter: We’ve added the long-awaited option to set Prettier as the default formatter.
- Work with Nuxt.js: Starting with v2020.2, WebStorm comes with support for Nuxt.js, a popular framework built on top of Vue.
- Configure Vue-specific code style settings: You can now easily adjust indentation and interpolation settings for your Vue code.
- Save time with new intentions for loops: New smart intentions will help you perform some loop-related actions faster.
- Render JSDoc comments in the editor: To make reading JSDoc comments easier, we’ve made it possible to render them right in the editor, eliminating unnecessary distractions.
- Start debugging from tool windows: WebStorm now lets you start a debug session from the Run and Terminal tool windows.
- Get better support for @use and @forward rules: We’ve extended support for Sass’s module system so you can expect smarter completion and improved resolution for imported symbols.
- Identify problems in your code faster: With the new Inspections widget and the Problems tool window, you can get detailed information about issues in a file and navigate between them.
- Enjoy full support for GitHub pull requests: We’ve extended support for GitHub pull requests. You can now see and merge all pull requests, and also review code, all from right inside WebStorm.
