WebStorm 2023.1 EAP #3: Astro Support, New UI Enhancements, and Docker Improvements
We’re continuing to work on WebStorm 2023.1 with our third EAP build. To catch up on all of the new features WebStorm 2023.1 will bring, check out our previous EAP blog posts.
Important! WebStorm EAP builds are not fully tested and might be unstable.
Below you can find the most interesting improvements available in WebStorm 2023.1 EAP #3. Please try them out and share your feedback in the comments below or by using our issue tracker.
Initial Astro support has landed, with a new plugin available to use in WebStorm 2023.1 EAP #3. You can download the Astro plugin from JetBrains Marketplace, or install it directly from the IDE by going to Preferences / Settings | Plugins and searching for “Astro”.
The plugin provides basic functionality such as syntax highlighting, code completion with automatic imports, refactorings, navigation, intentions, code folding, Emmet support, and correct formatting. Please test it out and report any problems you find to our issue tracker. We are planning on adding more advanced Astro support in the future.
New UI enhancements
Vertical split for tool windows
We’ve introduced an option in the new UI that lets you split the area of the tool windows and arrange them so you can see two at once.
To add a tool window to this area and place it in the lower part, drag its icon along the side bar and drop it under the separator. Alternatively, you can right-click on the icon and assign the new placement for the tool window using the Move to action.
To improve the user experience with the new UI on smaller screens, we’ve introduced compact mode. It provides a more consolidated look with a leaner toolbar and tool window header, scaled-down spacings and paddings, and smaller icons and buttons.
To turn compact mode on, go to the View menu and select Appearance | Compact Mode.
Merged log from all Docker-compose containers
The Dashboard tab of the Docker-compose node now pulls together logs from all Docker-compose containers and displays them all in one place. They are also kept updated in real time.
Support for Azure Container Registry
You can now easily connect to the Azure Container Registry. Go to Preferences / Settings | Build, Execution, Deployment | Docker | Docker Registry and set it up by selecting the Docker V2 option in the Registry input field.
New setting to apply the
:z mount option to bind volumes on SELinux
We’ve added an ability to add the
:z configuration flag to Docker bind mounts, which allows you to connect volumes to Docker containers on SELinux workstations. To enable it, go to Preferences / Settings | Advanced Settings | Docker.
That is all for today. For the full list of the latest enhancements available in WebStorm 2023.1 EAP #3, check out the release notes.
