Built-in remote development workflows

Support for remote development workflows, which we introduced last year, is now available out of the box, under the Beta label. You can connect to a remote machine with an IDE backend running and work on a project located there as if it were located on your local machine. To get started, go to the Remote Development tab on WebStorm’s Welcome screen. You can also use the standalone JetBrains Gateway app. For more information, see our documentation.

Bundled remote development Beta

Bundled JetBrains Space integration

WebStorm now comes with built-in integration for JetBrains Space, our all-in-one solution for software teams. This will allow you to connect your IDE to your organization in JetBrains Space to view and clone your project repositories, write complex scripts that use Space APIs, and review your teammates’ code. To log in to Space, click the Get from VCS button on the Welcome screen, select Space on the left, and enter your organization’s URL in the dedicated field. It’s also possible to log in from the main menu via Tools | Space | Log in to Space.

Bundled JetBrains Space plugin

Once logged in, you can clone the desired repository and open it in WebStorm. When you open it, Space Code Reviews will appear on the left-hand pane. From there, you can see a list of issues that need your attention. For example, if you’re a reviewer, you can open an issue to see its author, look at the timeline, add comments inside diff view, and more.

Other notable changes

  • Fixed the issue causing global components to be unresolved in Vue Router projects (WEB-55665).
  • Fixed the issue with Tailwind CSS coding assistance not working in Angular inlineTemplate and inlineStyles (WEB-52742).
  • Added support for the TypeScript typesVersions field in package.json files (WEB-42898).
  • Unbundled the interactive training course that was available under the Learn WebStorm tab on the Welcome screen. If you’d like to install it as a plugin, search for “IDE Features Trainer” in Preferences / Settings | Plugins.
