WebStorm 2022.2 Release Candidate Is Here

With the release date just around the corner, we’re happy to present the release candidate for WebStorm 2022.2. Unlike our previous EAP builds, you must have an active WebStorm license to use it. Otherwise, you’ll need to sign up for a 30-day free trial to install and run this build.

WenStorm 2022.2 Release Candidate


Let’s take a brief look at some of the most interesting improvements in v2022.2:

  • Support for Angular standalone components: We’ve been actively working on support for Angular 14 in WebStorm. The most important addition we’ve made is support for Angular standalone components.
  • Updates for Vue 3: We’ve worked on providing better support for Vue 3. For example, WebStorm now understands type narrowing in v-if/else directives, and the Pinia support has been improved to include completion and resolve.
  • Built-in remote development: Support for remote development workflows is now available out of the box under the Beta label.
  • Improvements for Docker: We’ve implemented several improvements for Docker, including a new Copy Docker Image action and the option to connect to Docker when restarting the IDE.
  • Updates for the HTTP client: WebStorm 2022.2 includes support for WebSocket connections. We’ve also added support for GraphQL requests.
  • A new way to run the current file: We’ve added the Current File option to make it easier to use the run configuration type best suited for the current file.
