WebStorm Reviews & Product Details


What is WebStorm?

WebStorm is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for the modern development with JavaScript: client-side, server-side and mobile. In addition to the benefits it provides to developers, such as saving their time on automating routine tasks, locating and fixing errors, taking advantage of intelligent support from the IDE, and increasing their overall productivity, WebStorm can be an equally valuable asset for your business. It can save your money and resources by reducing software development and maintenance costs, help you keep release schedules, and even boost revenues by improving the quality of your software products.

"Editor poderoso para desenvolvimento web"

What do you like best?

Interface muito amigável ao consumidor, capaz de reconhecer para iniciantes. Suponho que os pertences finos e discretos da Webstorm são que, embora você queira buscar uma contenção, a capacidade básica pode ser obtida com um clique do mouse. Eu tenho sido o uso dos produtos da série "Storm" por um longo tempo para poder mencionar que eles são muito sólidos e constantemente atualizados, eu poderia fazer o uso agradável deles para construir o que eu acredito

What do you dislike?

Alguns plugins têm bugs para se candidatarem ao Emmet Eu não tenho nenhuma reclamação Ao começar grandes iniciativas, de vez em quando leva um longo prazo para indexar novos arquivos

Recommendations to others considering the product:

No entanto, eu faço 99% do meu trabalho no WebStorm e realmente gosto de como é rápido e eficiente de usar Se você quiser tentar, pesquise a versão do EAP. No entanto, eu faço 99% do meu trabalho no WebStorm e realmente aprecio o quão rápido e eficiente é usar

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

O principal benefício é que ele me ajuda a escrever, testar e depurar meu código, o que me permite economizar muito tempo ao executar essas tarefas. Agilize o desenvolvimento de software, especialmente com aplicaciones web Eu uso este produto diariamente para minha pesquisa no desenvolvimento de interface de usuário e resolução de probelms usando Angular no geral

"Incroyable"

What do you like best?

J'ai obtenu une licence d'érudit peu structurée une fois que je suis entré à la faculté et que j'utilisais au maximum cet outil. Il fournit de nombreuses fonctions de navigateur dans l'IDE lui-même, ce qui est bien pour vérifier le débogage. Maintenant, javascriptit n'est pas très pratique et peut également guider de nombreuses autres langues.

What do you dislike?

- A veces indica errores qu'il n'y en a pas Je n'ai même pas encore déterminé de défaut majeur, peut-être une personnalisation supplémentaire pourrait-elle être de haute qualité? Je n'aime pas deux choses à ce sujet

Recommendations to others considering the product:

C’est un formidable outil d’amélioration de l’internet. Pour un débutant en amélioration nette, WebStorm est un très bon coup. Si votre PC dispose de suffisamment de RAM, c’est un IDE génial.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nous avons découvert que, sans webstorm, notre équipe de programmation prendrait beaucoup plus de temps à accomplir des tâches, notamment en l'utilisant comme IDE numéro un pour la croissance d'initiatives Internet. Amélioration du Web.

"Embalado com montes de capacidades desejáveis, acelera a maneira de desenvolvimento"

What do you like best?

Eu tinha sido o uso de produtos jetbrains para toda a minha linguagem de desenvolvimento, Clone, Rubymine, webstorm Eu ainda tenho que descobrir um dispositivo que chega a tocar WebStorm para JavaScript. - A fantástica personalização do ser, quantidade de plugins e previsão de erros, tenho sido o uso de por três meses em um projeto privado com angular, e minha opinião não poderia ser melhor, eu ainda tenho quase nenhum no entanto .

What do you dislike?

Existem alguns pluging que não são examinados corretamente e, ocasionalmente, com novas atualizações, os plugins estragam. O WebStorm pode ser muito útil em termos de ajuda Para reminiscências de projetos pesados, o webstorm começa a travar e a travar em instâncias

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Leia a Documentação Aqueles de nós que usaram este programa de software estão virtualmente satisfeitos, o ponto mais eficaz é o custo, mas vale a pena fazer o investimento Incorporando ainda mais estruturas JS disponíveis.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Eu uso webstorm para uma série de tarefas, como melhoria de aplicativos iônicos e construção de sites angulares que eu uso para basicamente examinar e exercitar JavaScript. Somos uma pequena startup e estamos rodando no wordpress, estamos desenvolvendo plugins e temas

"Impresionante herramienta para mejorar JavaScript"

What do you like best?

- Proporciona una gran cantidad de funciones del navegador interno de IDE, que es genial para revisar o depurar. Como siempre, todos los IDEs de Jetbrains son mis preferidos por la gran cantidad de personalización, predicciones y facilidades que aporta al programador

What do you dislike?

- A veces indica errores que no existen. Lento para cargar hasta en comparación con diferentes IDEs. En algún momento esta aplicación es un consumidor de CPU y este software es propietario y no se puede modificar.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Una mejor guía de diagramas UML que podría incluirse fácilmente como parte de la documentación que confirma los diversos requisitos de la industria Para un principiante en el desarrollo de Internet, WebStorm es una excelente oportunidad. Pruebe durante un mes y decida usted mismo.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Usándolo como IDE número uno para desarrollar tareas web. Un IDE JS que podría ajustar adecuadamente la función y mostrar la documentación en el hover. Crecimiento del sitio web, CD, desprotección.

"It's better than most average products"

What do you like best?

The coding assistance provided by WebStorm is the best around. It facilitates very rapid development without having to hunt through documentation all day.

The breadth and depth of plugins, both from JetBrains and from the community, is incredible. There are plugins to do practically anything.

It's cross-platform, and using the JetBrains Toolbox makes it so it can auto-update seamlessly without me needing to worry about it.

The amount of languages and types of projects it can support is pretty staggering.

What do you dislike?

WebStorm can be slow to start up, particularly if it has to reindex the site, it can end up slowing my entire computer down for a little while. This is compounded with having a lot of plugins active.

WebStorm can be very resource-intensive. It will happily eat up as much memory as you give it, at least to a point. This is fine if you have a beefy development system, but if you don't have a lot of memory or other resources available, WebStorm can sometimes run quite slowly.

Once in a while, using "Find in files" doesn't find certain text strings that do exist within project files. It's pretty rare, but it has caused a hassle a couple of times.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a necessary product to have in current industry

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Writing code with it and it's much more efficient than competitors

"WebStorm is a great asset for developing large-scale web applications"

What do you like best?

WebStorm includes a ton of time-saving features, but I'd save live templates are on of my favorites. I can easily create custom code snippets with variables to be filled in whenever I use the snippet, which saves a ton on keystrokes. For example, I have a template to create a new API method where I provide the filename, add the snippet, and press tab a few times. All of the boilerplate code gets added, the function name is generated from the file name, and I can focus on just writing the application logic.

Another of my favorite features is the Git Rebase functionality. WebStorm makes rebasing a breeze; once you start the rebase process it prompts you when there are conflicts, allowing you to merge them using the stellar built-in 3-way merge tool (which includes syntax highlighting and ESlint support) then automatically proceeds with the rebase once all conflicts are resolved.

Other great features include the TypeScript and Vue support, as well as built-in integration with 3rd party tools such as ESlint, TSlint, and Prettier.

What do you dislike?

Most of my nitpicks are pretty minor. For example, while WebStorm supports both CSS modules in css and scss file and Vue single-file components, it doesn't support CSS modules inside Vue SFC <style> tags.

Also, WebStorm can get pretty memory heavy in large projects, sometimes going over 2GB of RAM usage per open project.

Another long-standing annoyance for me is that on Windows pressing CTRL+C in Webstorm's built-in terminal doesn't always terminate applications.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use WebStorm as our primary IDE for developing web applications and have used it on numerous projects. The full-project TypeScript integration alone has saved us countless hours and prevented numerous defects. All of the features combine to provide us with a top-notch tool for software development.

"The best tool for webdesign."

What do you like best?

Split view lets you open a file and preview it live in the same screen, with the click of a button you can open any web browser as long as you have them installed, you can preview raster and vector graphics directly in WebStorm without needing any external program thus reducing the time you spend tabbing in and out. Program is very lightweight so does not consume a lot of ram or CPU.

What do you dislike?

When you open many files the tabs on top with the files become a little weird and hard to find.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

A great feature is that you can store your current layout as default with one click and have a consistent layout across computers for the duration of the project.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Web design and development for python script integration.

"WebStorm is an amazing IDE for Javascript development. It is faster and highly customizable. "

What do you like best?

WebStorm’s intelligent code completion is second to none. WebStorm comes bundled with JSHint and JSLint. JSCS, ESLint, and Closure Linter can be installed via npm. They register as inspections and are customizable through IDE settings. They run automatically and will highlight potential issues. Pressing alt+enter on an issue will allow the user to view suggested fixes.

What do you dislike?

I dislike two things about it. Occasional slow performance. WebStorm can sometimes choke all cores of the CPU. There are numerous reports of high CPU usage. Secondly, it is not open source. This application is proprietary, and thus cannot be modified, freely distributed, or trusted for security.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend WebStorm to other users.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WebStorm have improved our productivity since working with this IDE is powerful but simple and we save a lot of time. For large projects, WebStorm makes it easy to write code.

"WebStorm"

What do you like best?

1. Local File history is like blessings for me in many times. :)

2. Code Debugging is very smooth.

3. Best part is auto correct options if write wrong syntax it gives you hint that you should use this instead of.

4. integrated Version control system saves my lot of time to resolve conflicts and side by side difference system.

5. Customisable theme options is very cool and I can work in low light as well.

What do you dislike?

- Sometimes auto formatter creates big problem in my case and it's not free although you can have trail version for month but price is little bit high.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are n number of tools for the development but for the front end development I believe this is the best. You can have only one tool which gives extension to version control to local file history and local server as well. It has huge community and there are many plugins readily available to use with webstrom.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- It is very easy to adapt for any user. It reduces my development time compare to other IDE. There are n numbers of tool for web development but this one is best among all.

"Best IDE for frontend development"

What do you like best?

1. all shortcuts ctrl+alt+L and all your code is formatted.

2. Material UI, helps me work longer

3. AutoComplete shows me what I can use and what I can't.

4. Version Control helps me properly manage my files and add/commit them after checking proper difference and making it easier for me, making sure only right stuff gets uploaded.

5. Debugging is very easy on webstorm. Even when you are not using debugger and you write something wrong, it shows you right away that you have written something wrong.

What do you dislike?

To be honest, Auto formatting sometimes makes the file very long.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a great tool, and all level users can use it without a second thought. I started using it a year ago and it was adaptable from day 1, but it so features rich that sometimes I discover new features even today.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using it for my website development using vue.js

It's terrific for rapid development, debugging and it shows you right there when you are writing something wrong. Very beneficial.

Yarn auto detects the package.json changes and auto installs the missing packages.

Overall you can just do rapid development with it.

"Really easy to use editor for webpages"

What do you like best?

I don't code at all but I do understand code and with this, I can make the edits I need to the HTML in minutes, finding the text I need to change(for example a date) and doing that in all the instances of the HTML I'm editing. This allows me to also view images directly in the program and open any browser to see how it's looking and if I made the correct

What do you dislike?

License price is a bit expensive, but since my company pays for it I'm totally ok with that.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I'm on marketing and I think it's easy to use, it's that easy even if you don't code at all.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Modifying webpages and seeing how the final result is looking without much effort.

"Top Notch Software for Making Web Applications!"

What do you like best?

I really enjoy the speed and the capabilities of WebStorm. I use it daily and have learned my way to navigate it. I really like the smart complete and search everywhere functions.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that WebStorm is not learning my habits and my preferences. Smart code suggestions / snippet creation, workflow optimizations could really improve my daily processes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This software is really top notch if you're into web development. Learn the shortcuts, watch some tutorials and optimize your workflow!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've created over 300 projects using WebStorm. From tiny single page landing pages, to enterprise web platforms, I've been using it for lots of projects. I stay up to date with code editors and workflow and WebStorm is also usually up-to-date and trying to stay competitive with other products.

"WebStorm es una bestia a la hora de programar."

What do you like best?

Me encanta la auto-completar inteligente, viene con casi todos los lenguajes pre configurados, la consola dentro de la IDE es esencial, así como el soporte con la mayoría de los frameworks utilizados actualmente. La interfaz de usuario es muy personalizable y tiene un gran número de temas para mejorar la apariencia física.

What do you dislike?

A veces puede sentirse un poco limitado con respecto a la personalización o implementación de características personalizadas, especialmente si está acostumbrado a trabajar con IDEs de código abierto.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Este programa es excelente, es altamente recomendable, se recomienda la compra de este software. Incluso ofrecen una licencia gratuita para estudiantes de 1 año o una prueba de 30 días, por lo que mejor probar y ver lo maravillosa que es esta herramienta.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Soy programador y es mi herramienta diaria de programación. Me ahorra mucho tiempo y esfuerzo gracias al auto-completado que tiene incorporado, como en todos de la serie Storm

"El mejor Editor"

What do you like best?

Hace tiempo que utilizo los productos de la serie "Storm" para poder decir que son muy estables y constantemente actualizados, puedo hacer el mejor uso de ellos para construir lo que imagino. No puedo prescindir de él. Antes de encontrarme con estos productos, no tenía un IDE favorito para usar en lugar de otro. Ahora, sin embargo, cuando tengo que usar una PC que no es la mía, ¡instalo inmediatamente WebStorm! El mejor!

What do you dislike?

En el párrafo anterior dije los aspectos positivos del software, ahora en cambio discuto los lados negativos. Tuve cuando empecé a usarlo algunos problemas con la instalación de plugins, tal vez incluso para mostrar php además de html, css y JavaScript. A pesar de esto, encontré la solución a mis problemas haciendo un poco de investigación en Internet. Encontré un guía y todo salió bien.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Este programa es excelente, es altamente recomendable y mi empresa está adoptando las medidas para la adquisición de este software e instalarlo en todas las estaciones de trabajo. Aquellos de nosotros que hemos utilizado este software estamos realmente satisfechos, el único punto en contra es el precio, pero vale la pena hacer la inversión.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lo utilizo siempre que hay necesidad en comparación con los competidores es muy fluido y en la salida es instantánea. Muy rápido en cualquier asunto.

"Powerful Editor without Overhead"

What do you like best?

It comes with practically every tool necessary to start a project or work directly on an existing one. It also comes with awesome integrations for different kinds of development flows.

What do you dislike?

There's not much to say here. The only problem I might have at times is a slow boot time, but once its up and running, everything is seamless.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Instead of buying IntellIJ, get Webstorm and cut out all the overhead IntellIJ gives you and quite a few extra tools for Web Dev for a powerful and seamless flow.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The principal problem it solves is the sometimes painful development process for big projects. It's our primary tool for developing some of the bigger projects we manage. It solves the "one size fits all" problem for us. It helps the developers here avoid wasting any time getting the development tools necessary for the projects set up which means more time to work on and finding a solution to actual problems.

It's also available for every platform we currently use (Windows, Mac, Linux), so we prevent having any problems on the development side of the projects, since we assure everyone is using and looking at the same project. Developers have no problem with using it because you can basically style it however you want, use any linter, and even integrate it with something like VIM (for VIM users).

"The best editor for worry-free programming"

What do you like best?

I love intelligent autocomplete, it comes with almost all pre-configured languages, the console within the ide is essential as well as the support with most of the frameworks currently used. The user interface is very customizable and has a large number of themes to improve the physical appearance.

What do you dislike?

This application does not have notable contras, the only thing I could say is that the initial load is a bit slow, the price is high although it has a trial version.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This program is excellent, it is highly recommended and my company is adopting the measures for the acquisition of this software and install it in all workstations. Those of us who have used this software are really satisfied, the only point against is the price but it is worth making the investment.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a programmer and it is my daily tool for programming. It saves me a lot of time and effort for the autocomplete that it has incorporated.

"WebStorm pros and cons"

What do you like best?

Fast IDE where are integrated all necessary tools such as GIT, Terminal, linting, debugging. Tool is well designed and comfortable for work. Here is great integration with GIT what allows you to avoid all other programs. You can easely manage you git project, see the graphs and all commits, change history and do everythins you need with user interface or with console.

Additionaly, here is great implemented configuration feature. You can manage your code style from settings. set all you and your team needs.

What do you dislike?

It takes too much memory. Sometimes I see notifications about memory limits.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Well designed and developed product that supports all languages you need in Web developing. Additional tools are integrated well.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WebStorm is a great tool wor web development, debugging and support. It helps to build and deliver well orginized and high quality products.

"WebStorm es tu IDE si eres un desarrollador web"

What do you like best?

Creo que la mejor propiedad discreta de la Webstorm es que cuando se necesita perseguir una contención de la base de la capacidad se puede hacer con un clic del ratón.

What do you dislike?

De verdad, no hay nada que no me haya gustado de Webstrom. Una cosa que es un tormento es la membresía pagada. Es mínima mente costoso para los "junios". Me imagino que deberíamos mantener este IDE libre para al menos los "junios".

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Está justificado, a pesar de todos los problemas. Es el mejor IDEs para el avance de la programación. Hay un depurador/preservación dentro del IDE. Todo es ajustable dentro de la GUI de configuración (no hay ningún documento de configuración que aprender y mantener, el IDE lo hace por usted).

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Dispositivo para incluir efectivamente estructuras y APIs no soportadas. Tiene refuerzos empresariales para algunas estructuras (responder, rakish, hub, require y algunas más).

"A very good code editor for working with scripts for remote and local servers."

What do you like best?

For when we want to have a lot of speed in terms of programming, webstorm offers it, it has everything to handle and edit the code in the remote servers that we manage, it even helps us to test content, of everything that we upload via FTP. , as well as the captures of the remote servers, many of the files that we edit are made with this program.

What do you dislike?

Although the program is very complete, I think that personally it lacks some saving options like saying that some file extensions are missing, another very important thing that I have seen is that it would lack the implementation of better previews of the files that we have to edit.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I always recommend that you read the tutorials that you have on the program's page, because like all good software there, learn to use the most complex options, here in cisco, it serves us very well for editing files on servers, but it also serves for the realization of sites on the internet, this program is basically made to do a faster job and make everything easier in terms of coding editing and handling of scripts in the file packages for the servers.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At work is a program that we already have by default most of us here, has many options, in fact in my opinion I think it is one of the best with which e worked is very easy and fast to work with this editor, that we not only use to edit files from remote servers but also use it in the design of the site where we upload part of the work and captures of remote and local servers of my work, so it is a program that we use daily.

"The best IDE for JavaScript Developers"

What do you like best?

I like everything about WebStorm, but the best features are its integrated system to handle JavaScript and TypeScript, along with SASS support on the go.

Despite the fact of it being easy-to-use, the program makes a very nice environment to develop your web applications.

I use it usually with JavaScript projects, I like that for example, I can start an Angular CLI project from it and leave the rest to this integrated feature where it handles creating the files and the hierarchy for my project. I can use the terminal from inside the program to run and debug the code I am writing. It helps a lot with having SASS in the project as it creates an automatic file watched to compile that to CSS.

Debugging was never easier for Web projects, WebStorm automatically highlights problems with the code at writing the code time, and then you can easily trace your methods and classes.

For the final testing, it's a great tool, as you can run your tests from inside it as well.

What do you dislike?

I have a problem with shortcuts, it doesn't follow the common sense sometimes as in the case of going to the start or the end of a code file.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is the best IDE for JavaScript projects, nothing compares.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using only WebStorm, I don't need another window to run the terminal or run the testing processes. I like how it helps to understand the code you are writing before your run and check later.

"Best web IDE"

What do you like best?

I have been using the products of the "Storm" series for quite some time to be able to say that they are very stable and constantly updated, I can make the best use of them to build what I imagine. I can not do without it. Before I came across these products, I did not have a favorite IDE to use in place of another. Now, however, when I happen to have to use a PC not mine, I immediately install WebStorm! The best!

What do you dislike?

In the previous paragraph I told the positive aspects of the software, now instead I discuss the negative sides. I had when I started to use it some problems with the installation of plugins, maybe even to display php in addition to html, css and JavaScript. Despite this I found the solution to my problems by doing a little research on the internet. I found a guide and it all worked out.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The purchase of this software is recommended. It even offers a free student license. Really great!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it whenever there is need compared to competitors is very fluid and at the start is instantaneous. Very quick in any matter.

"Unparalleled amount of features for a Front End IDE, at the cost of performance."

What do you like best?

Webstorm is an incredibly powerful IDE for Front End, and I love how frequently it receives updates on cutting edge Front End Tools, notably Vue.js, TypeScript and GraphQL. Also, it's a fantastic bonus the fact it streamlines a lot of developer tooling into one tool, such as task runners and version control.

What do you dislike?

Webstorm's features sadly don't come without a cost, mainly in the shape of huge performance issues on low and mid range machines, or when working on large projects even on large machines. This is caused by the indexing it does on project open which can be disabled, but this sadly removes a lot of functionality as well. Also, it packs so many features it can, and will be a daunting tool for beginners.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Read the wiki! Webstorm is NOT an easy tool to get into, and all help will be crucial.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I needed a powerful IDE to work on a substantially large project (+500,000 files), and Webstorm gave me a way of handling and refactoring such large amounts of code with ease. It's definitely a life saver on large projects.

"Good IDE for Node and Javascript"

What do you like best?

WebStorm is packed with features you'd expect from an IntelliJ IDE. Some of these features are:

WebStorm offers code completion, suggesting what you might possibly be meaning to type in, which is helpful.

It offers a built in debugger, supporting FireFox and Google Chrome, which is extremely helpful for web development. It helps eliminate the need to switch back and forth between WebStorm and some debugger application.

It has support for external frameworks such as Node, Google App Engine, React, Express, and many more.

As with every IntelliJ IDE I have used, it has a great library of plugins and supports installing plugins from disk.

My favorite feature that it offers is the UI customization, allowing me to use the Dracula theme, which is perfect as I have a hard time seeing on lighter backgrounds.

Another great feature with WebStorm is the ability to commit and push to GIT repos right in the application itself.

What do you dislike?

While WebStorm is definitely full of features and my go-to Node/JS IDE, it does have some issues and drawbacks.

As with every IntelliJ IDE I have used, WebStorm does have a pretty large memory footprint. It also can take some time to start up.

When accessing multiple projects, each one is opened in a separate instance, which, again, can impact performance.

Most IntelliJ IDEs allow you to import a project from files on a remote server, however with WebStorm this isn't possible. You must first create a local project, then navigate through the menus to find the deployment options, and add the server and download the files. Added servers are per project instead of throughout the IDE as a while, to me, this is the biggest drawback/annoyance with WebStorm.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely recommend this IDE if you plan on developing with JavaScript, Node, or similar.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had recently switched from using PHP as our back-end to Node and WebStorm helped with the development, allowing us to develop the back-end quicker and more effectively than other alternative IDEs.

"Best IDE for front-end development "

What do you like best?

Webstorm is probably one of the best IDE's I have ever used in my life. It comes with numerous fantastic features. A few of the features, I like in Webstorm are:

1.) Autocompletion: Its very hard to find an IDE which can provide autocompletion for even Javascript, but Webstorm does that for us. When I was not using Webstorm, I always had to look for the syntex on the internet, but thanks to Webstorm autocompletion features. Saves a lot of time.

2.) Inbuilt debugger: Very helpful for web development. You don't need to switch back and fourth between browser and IDE, as Webstorm comes with inbuilt debugger which you can use to debug your application. It has support for firefox and chrome. I am not sure about the other browsers.

3.) Support for external frameworks: It provides a greate support for external frameworks such as, Google App Engine, Angular JS, React, Node, Express and many more.

4.) Customization is possible: You can infact add custom menu as per your needs. This is sometimes very helpful and handy.

What do you dislike?

Although, webstorm has several wonderful features, but there are a few areas which can be improved:

1.) It takes quite a bit of time to open up at the first time.

2.) It doesn't open multiple projects in one IDE. If I need two projects to be opened, Webstorm open it in two separate IDE which is performance intensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely recommended. Especially for front end development. Makes life very easy.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Webstorm for day-to-day software/web development

"Probably the best JS IDE there is"

What do you like best?

-Debugger inside the ide (connect to chrome and firefox debugger)

-You can bind commands and programs to the ide. Then you can assign shortcut and menus to those commands and programs (super useful for custom grunt/gulp workflow)

-Build to be keyboard-centric, every menu is searchable, all shortcut can be changed, a new shortcut can be added.

-It has great git, svn and mercurial support (multiple branch management, log, blame, history and more)

-Support Typescript out of the box

-Plugin manager out of the box

-File watcher execute commands when your files change (use fewer resources than node watch)

-The UI is 100% customizable and offer out of the box a few great themes.

What do you dislike?

1. Takes a few seconds to open for the first time (unless you have an SSD)

2. Tries to reopen a new ide every time you open a file outside a project. (you can use scratch files instead of most of those cases)

3. Cost money

Recommendations to others considering the product:

One of the best IDEs around when it comes to web development.

Everything is customizable within the settings GUI (no config file to learn and maintain, the ide does it for you)

Awesome search engine (shift+shift will search in everything, files, function, variables, menu, settings, action, etc)

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All developers use Webstorm.

The quality of work has improved due to the high customizability of Webstorm. As each developer is unique, they need to customize their IDE according to them.

WebStorm’s Settings dialog it’s known for its live search feature. If you don’t agree with the way that WebStorm indents your code, you can simply type “indent” and the tool will only select the categories related to indenting code.
