WebStorm 2022.1 EAP #2: Improvements for Vue

WebStorm 2022.1 EAP build #2 is now available! To catch up on all the new features, check out our previous EAP blog posts.

If you’re not familiar with our Early Access Program, check out this blog post where we explain what the EAP is and why you should take part in it. TL;DR: aside from helping steer development in the direction you want, you can also get a free WebStorm license.

The Toolbox App is the easiest way to get the EAP builds and keep both your stable and EAP versions up to date. You can also manually download the EAP builds from our website.


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

Below you can find the biggest improvements available in WebStorm 2022.1 EAP #2. Please try them out and share your feedback with us.

Improvements for Vue

WebStorm 2022.1 comes with several improvements for Vue 3. If you define components as global, the IDE will now recognize them in your .vue files. WebStorm should also properly support the createApp syntax. It will correctly match applications created using createApp with their related elements.


This version also includes support for Nuxt 3, a new version of a popular Vue framework.

Version control improvements

Updated Annotate with Git Blame

We’ve improved the functionality of Annotate with Git Blame to make investigating introduced changes easier. The IDE highlights the differences in lines right in the editor when you hover on an annotation and opens the Log tab under the Git tool window when you click on it.


Git File History: new UI without index

The new UI for the Git File History tool window is now independent from the indexing process. The data is represented with a new interface even if the Log index is off.


Previously, for a file with an unindexed history, the IDE would display an old history view that was relatively slow and missing features.

Other notable changes

Here are some other notable changes available in this build:

  • For projects hosted within WSL 2, WebStorm should no longer freeze when indexing files. This fix was also included in v2021.3.2 (IDEA-286059).
  • Fixed several known issues with Tailwind CSS (WEB-52237, WEB-48964, WEB-54277, WEB-54445, and WEB-49734).
  • Introduced new Enum and Enum member options in Preferences / Settings | Editor | Color Scheme | TypeScript. Their default values are inherited from Class for Enum and from Static member variables for Enum members (WEB-44897).
  • Fixed the issue causing incorrect ThisType type evaluation for contextual object literals (WEB-31737).
  • Removed the Restart IDE… action from the File group under the main menu because it wasn’t actively used. You can still invoke it using the ⇧⌘A / Ctrl+Shift+A shortcut (IDEA-279530).
