WebStorm 2021.2 Beta 2 Is Here

WebStorm 2021.2 Beta 2 is now available! You can upgrade to the latest build using the Toolbox App or from our website. To catch up on what has already been implemented, check out our previous EAP blog posts.


We’d like to thank everyone who has been testing out our EAP builds and shared their feedback with us! If you’ve tried them but you haven’t had a chance to give us your feedback, please do – here’s our issue tracker.

Below you’ll find some of the highlights of WebStorm 2021.2 Beta 2:

Faster tool window reorganization

Want to reorganize the tool windows in WebStorm? It has become much easier! Hover over the top of the tool window you want to move, then drag it to where you want it and drop it there. This will work if you want to detach a tool window from the main WebStorm window, too – just drag it outside of the IDE frame.


New template for adding arrow functions

To help you add some of the most common code constructs faster, WebStorm provides you with a number of ready-to-use templates as you autocomplete code. For example, if you type function, you’ll see a template for adding a function declaration.


In this release, we’ve added a similar template for arrow functions. If you type const, you’ll see this template in the completion popup. Select it from the list and add all the necessary information as shown below.


That’s it for today. For a full list of the latest enhancements available in this update, please see the release notes.
