Improvements for Docker
Upload local Docker image to other connections
You can now copy images from one Docker daemon to another using the new Copy Docker Image action. It saves the image to a file and then pushes it to the chosen connection.
Docker auto-connection at IDE restart
WebStorm now automatically connects to Docker when you restart the IDE. This new setting is enabled by default in Preferences / Settings | Advanced Settings | Docker.
Docker connection options for different Docker daemons
Updates for the HTTP client
Support for WebSocket endpoints
WebStorm 2022.2 supports WebSocket connections, which allows you to create requests as well as send and receive messages.
Support for GraphQL endpoints
With the 2022.2 release, we’ve also introduced support for GraphQL requests in the HTTP client. WebStorm can now send GraphQL queries over HTTP and WebSocket protocols. For http:// and https:// simple HTTP requests are used, while ws:// and wss:// are delegated to the WebSocket executor.
UI/UX improvements for the HTTP client
We’ve introduced a couple of UI/UX improvements to the HTTP client. We’ve added a way to select a run environment from a gutter icon. To enable this feature, choose the Select Environment Before Run option from the Run with combo box.
We’ve also improved the Response view by adding a progress bar, which allows you to track the download status.
