"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 business 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 business 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 business 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 business 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.

"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 business 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.

"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 business 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.

"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 business 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.

"Webstorm is my go-to IDE for all things javascript!"

What do you like best?

The vast array of configurable functionality makes this IDE stand out above the rest.

What do you dislike?

Beginners might get overwhelmed with the amount of functionality is provide. Its like a double edged sword!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Text editors are great but you haven't experienced agile development if you haven't worked with a real IDE (like WebStorm). One of IntelliJ's best products. It makes writing web and mobile applications easy and fun.

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

We are developing high end web and mobile applications with ReactJS and React Native. The plethora of functionality does not take away any performance whatsoever. If you are used to coding in an IntelliJ environment, you should fit right in. It makes writing JavaScript easy and almost fun (no offence to JS its just not my favourite language). It helps with JS fatigue (yes its a real thing, Google it!)

"An IDE that makes development pleasant and fast from day one"

What do you like best?

The best thing about WebStorm is that it comes with almost all the features that you can desire preinstalled. It is unlikely that you will need to add many plugins, as it's usual with most editors. This makes development enjoyable and fast from day one. It has a great ability to predict the content of fields and code navigation is very powerful too.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes you might feel a bit constrained regarding customization or implementation of custom features, especially if you are used to working with open source IDEs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn about all it's built-in features in advance to maximize the productivity boost.

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

Development times are shortened thanks to it's powerful autocomplete and reference features. Also, code formatting makes projects more readable and with syntax highlighting you can greatly reduce the amount of coding errors and typos.

"Review about WebStorm"

What do you like best?

It's very easy to write the code without any complexity. For more complicated projects also, we can easily write and debug the code. We can easily identify the errors by using analysis feature. It's very useful to write the nodejs code. As a beginner of nodejs I struggled with the syntax, in Webstorm It's very easy to handle the syntax problems.

What do you dislike?

It takes lots of time to creating a new project as well as to open an existed project. Some times it will get struct while coding.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's very useful for large scale projects. After completion of coding, we can easily store the code in GitHub. For beginners of a new language, it's very helpful as they don't know much about the syntax. Error handling is easy.

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

For large scale projects Webstorm is very useful to write the code. We can easily connect to the GitHub and clone the projects. After writing the code we can easily store in GitHub.

"A great IDE for Node and Javascript development"

What do you like best?

WebStorm has a fantastic indexing engine that really helps autocomplete, refactoring, and navigation through a given codebase. You can simply open a directory (whether it be for a single project or multiple) and WebStorm will quickly organize everything appropriately.

WebStorm also features a best-in-class Javascript debugger, both for server and client (browser) code. It can plug into Chrome, Opera, etc.

It's very easy to use, and developers will be able to get up and running quickly.

What do you dislike?

Because WebStorm is written in Java, it can get a bit sluggish and become very resource intensive depending on the size of the project. As a result, it's important to keep the number of open JS apps/projects to a reasonable minimum.

There are so many preferences and options in WebStorm, it can be difficult to know which things you should change. Additionally, some preferences are specific to the project whereas others are global, and the difference is not always easy to understand.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're doing Javascript development, WebStorm and Visual Studio Code are two of the best options depending on need. WebStorm may edge out VS Code for those needing more advanced features, enterprise support, etc. Look at both and choose the one which makes the most sense in terms of need.

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

After using a number of other IDEs (e.g. Eclipse), I can say that WebStorm is one of the best. It provides a really good focus on Javascript and shines where other IDEs fail.

My company is using WebStorm to build modern, microservice architecture-based systems built atop Node.js on the server and popular Javascript frameworks on the browser.

After using Eclipse for a time, we're realizing faster and more efficient development cycles, because we don't have to fight against an IDE that was designed to "do everything." WebStorm is focused on making JS development easy, and it does that with aplomb.

"Webstrom OK but there are better things in market"

What do you like best?

I used to love webstorm for its integration with javascript and html. Its code typeahead feature is quite useful. Auto alignment is useful feature and the point that it can read your jscs file and align the code for you is quite useful.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike about webstrom that it is another skill, things are not automatic for example in case you want webstrom to read your jscs, tslint etc you would have to configure them. I was hoping webstrom to read them by default.

Even after reading them the default code style is different from JSCS, you could set keyboard strokes to mimic ctrl-alt-l feature but it is not same as default code style.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Webstrom is very powerful but to find its gems you would have to find them. They are not spoon fedded to you. I have not used it but I belive visual studio code is gaining popularity because of its ease of use.

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

code cleaning and auto code generation.

"One of the best IDE's available"

What do you like best?

I love how specific and dedicated this IDE is for javascript development. For my work I use sublime and then at home I get to use WebStorm. The difference is quite huge and I always feel like royalty when working with this premium IDE. I want to learn more about this editor so that I can start using it's advanced features like version control, git integration, and many other things. A few of my friends use PyCharm and it's git features, and are boasting about it has version controlling and how you are able to see different points in time. That's the next step to go from here.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it can take a while for WebStorm to actually open up and fully load the code. There was also a semi-steep learning curve, like with many other advanced IDE's. The biggest con against the entire JetBrain lineup of IDE's is their price. It is a very steep amount, but luckily they do offer student free one year licenses that can be renewed as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it a try. It is a pricey ide, but well worth it's price. if you are a student then you can get it for free as well.

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

I am currently using WebStorm as my preferred IDE for interview preparation. Overall it helps me a lot with code completion, and speeding up my development time. I do feel that almost everything can accomplished with a vanilla IDE as well though.

"The IDE with entire javascript support"

What do you like best?

The thing I like the most is the support for the last javascript technologies, libraries, and frameworks for the frontend side or backend side.

It gives you (as developer) smart autocompletion and syntax suggestions if you are using ES5, ES6 and ES7, Typescript, JSX, Dart, Go and even if you are developing with frontend frameworks such as Angular.js, React.js, Angular 4, Vue.js.

If you're working with node.js and NPM, it gives you shortcuts to improve the process related with packages installation, libraries dependencies, and schedule tasks.

Moreover, this IDE provides with tools that allows you to develop Mobile Hybrid Applications based on frameworks such as React Native, Native Script.

What do you dislike?

It should add support to the Exponent (expo) platform.

It should add better support for Ionic.

It should add better support for Electron.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you decide to improve your development processes using web technologies and you have enough money you should consider buy WebStorm

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

It improves the processes of development web, desktop and mobile applications using web technologies such as HTML, Javascript, and others...

"The definitive JS IDE"

What do you like best?

The IDE is perfect, it is fully integrated with Javascript and the most know frameworks as Angular, React, Vue.

Webstorm has a lot of functionalities to help you while programming, which make your work easier and faster: linting, code completion, error helpers

And if you miss something, you can install a lot of additional plugins to have it.

What do you dislike?

There is not a free version as IntelliJ Community.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to try it, search the EAP version.

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

I use Webstorm daily in my workplace as my main IDE when programming Javascript with AngularJS and VueJS.

The main benefit is that it helps me at writing, testing and debugging my code, letting me to save a lot of time when doing these tasks.

"Really good for node projects"

What do you like best?

As ruby node is also scripting language. So navigation becomes quite difficult but this does with ease. It has support for all node version and environment variable entry to start you node projects.

It takes extremely less amount of time to set up your project via this IDE instead of manually setting it up via terminal. We enter the correct environment values and the IDE takes care of it.

Plus debugging is the best options available to find out error specially in scripting languages.

What do you dislike?

It is still very slow. Internal navigation specially when we go exports.module line at the end of file, it is not able to find that function.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I personally think WebStorm is really good for beginners and they should start using it. Once the issue of navigation are fixed it will be really great to work upon.

Proper environment settings are already available to start your project locally. Like every IDE it also provides different configuration for almost every node project. Auto suggest and lint failures are the best it has.

"Powerful IDE for Web developers"

What do you like best?

All the features Provided by Community is really helpful for web developers. A very lightweight software and easy to use for web developers.Web storm provides huge support to modern javascript and react, angular and most of the web development frameworks. If you are working on Web development based projects or front end work then this will be my recommendation for you.

What do you dislike?

I don't recommend this IDE to a beginner because it provides so much functionality like code completion which decreases the learning of a beginner. This will be very helpful if you are proficient with the work you are doing. I think they need to provide some extension for Code beautification which will be helpful for developers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think Webstorm is a must use IDE for any web Developer. It will make your work easy and its built in features will provide a boost to your performance. Explore the beauty of this amazing product by intellij and you will really feel the goodness of an IDE.

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

"The best option for front developers web"

What do you like best?

I recommend WebStorm mainly as frontend web development IDE such as html5, css3, js, jquery, etc.

I find it very intuitive to use this ide since it incorporates many functionalities and helps with documentation and integration with other services.

with this software you can make integrations with version managers and integrate plugins to improve the speed and quality of development such as comparing code, checking the most efficient way to program, etc.

It also incorporates code comparator, integration with version manager, ftp deployments etc.

It can be used to develop fron code such as html5, css3, Javascript but it is also compatible with technologies such as Angular, React, Vue.js, Ionic, Cordova, React Native, Node.js, Meteor and Electron

What do you dislike?

I do not like its price, it seems too excessive and also if it were those prices would make it a single payment for life.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend a lower price and a single lifetime payment not annual payments

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

"Webstorm uno de los mejores IDE para programar webs"

What do you like best?

El directorio de plugins está lleno de plugins útiles. Me gusta mucho cómo puedes configurar tu estilo de codificación estándar, y te ayudará a adherirte a él. Incluso la sugerencia de varias líneas resulta ser increíblemente útil en los momentos más inusuales.

WebStorm nunca se quedara obsoleta, puesto a que constantemente esta recibiendo actualizaciones

What do you dislike?

Básicamente nada. Los IDEs de la familia Storm pueden ser un poco abrumadores para un principiante, pero la estabilidad y los entornos ricos en características son absolutamente críticos para la programación, en mi opinión.

Recommendations to others considering the product

sin duda no lo piense mas y escoge WebStorm como su IDE preferido si realmente desea tener mejores estándares de codificación. También puede ayudarte a importar ESLint (plugin de javascript), lo que puede traer mas directrices para el desarrollo de código, lo cual fue lo mejor que me pasó como desarrollador de JavaScript. Esta es una delicia para los desarrolladores.

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

WebStorm permite a los desarrolladores escribir codigo con el soporte de un IDE robusto que facilita la escritura, prueba, confirmación e implementación de código.

"El IDE perfecto para el desarrollo de JS y desarrollo web"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor de este programa es que WebStorm pone a disposición de los desarrolladores web profesionales cualquier nueva tecnología que deseen utilizar, así como todas las herramientas adecuadas como por ejemplo el soporte para CoffeeScript 3.0 (que incluye navegación, asistente de código, refactorización, comprobación de errores y más) para ayudarte a aprovechar al máximo la concisión y la legibilidad de esta extensión de JavaScript. Además, tiene soporte para Node.js que te permitirá utilizar todo el potencial de este IDE para editar y depurar JavaScript en el servidor.

What do you dislike?

Como la mayoría de IDE´s, necesita bastante memoria Ram y un buen procesador para que no vaya lento y aunque las capacidades de refactorización proporcionadas son de las mejores del mercado, a veces pueden ser defectuosas, lo que nos empuja a ser más conscientes al usarlas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Este es un muy buen IDE para JavaScript que además soporta JS, si trabajas con esos lenguajes entonces este IDE te será de gran ayuda y recomiendo usar la prueba gratis de 30 días para ver todo su potencial.

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

Suelo utilizar mucho Node.js al desarrollar API y WebStorm me facilita y agiliza el desarrollo además de que puedo hacer la mayor parte de la creación, prueba, depuración, control de versiones y despliegue de mi código, todo desde una sola aplicación ahorrando tiempo.

"El mejor IDE web con el que he trabajado"

What do you like best?

Soporta los principales frameworks de Javascript como Angular, ReactJs o Meteor.

Facilidad en el desarrollo de aplicaciones NodeJs.

Plantillas de soporte como Jade, ejs, twig...

Las opciones de depuración.

La eficiencia que ofrece cuando está desarrollando software y la experiencia fluida que tiene al desarrollar usando diferentes lenguajes es simplemente increíble.

What do you dislike?

La instalación tarda un rato considerable.

Consume bastante memoria y necesita reiniciarse de vez en cuando, lo que acaba siendo molesto.

Al abrir proyectos grandes, a veces tarda mucho tiempo en indexar archivos nuevos.

Lleva un tiempo conocer todas las funciones, los accesos directos por defecto son diferentes a Visual Studio, por ejemplo.

Es de lo mejor para el desarrollo en javascript, por lo que si estás utilizando otro lenguaje puede que no sea IDE más indicado.

No me cansaré de decirlo, el consumo de memoria es algo muy a tener en cuenta, esperemos que en futuras versiones deje de ser un problema.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Considera seriamente los productos de Jetbrains si estás en un entorno de equipo usando Git. Si puedes pagarlo, úsalo. Si no puedes, al menos prueba la versión gratuita. Es un IDE completo, con depurador y todo, pero con un aspecto más cercano a un editor genérico.

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

Poder programar en nodejs/jade/scss. Agiliza el desarrollo de software, especialmente con aplicaciones web. Es especialmente útil la integración de git y poder mantener todos los proyectos abiertos sincronizados.

Control de versiones e indexación de accesos directos dentro del proyecto, facilitando el desarrollo.

"Uno de los IDE más potentes"

What do you like best?

Este IDE tiene prácticamente todo lo necesario para trabajar en los proyectos en los que estés desarrollando, tanto como para la edición o como para la creación de uno nuevo. Viene con una configuración en la que nos permite seleccionar lenguajes, además de distintas formas de personalizar la interfaz.

What do you dislike?

Una de las pocas desventajas que tiene WebStorm es que me parece un poco lento a la hora de iniciarse y cargar. Algunas veces he tenido problemas con la instalación de plugins, con lo cual he tenido que reiniciar el programa y volver a abrirlo para comprobar si funcionaba correctamente o debía de volver a instalar el plugin.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es una buena recomendación si llevamos poco tiempo como desarrolladores, ya que nos da la oportunidad de trabajar de forma cómoda al poder personalizar todo a nuestro gusto.

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

Lo utilizo de vez en cuando para trabajar en algunos proyectos con muchos archivos. Normalmente lo suelo utilizar para proyectos con JavaScript o también con HTML y CSS. No debe de haber mucha diferencia si lo usamos con otros lenguajes como pueden ser PHP, React o cualquier otro.

The software can sometimes be a bit heavy on the CPU, triggering the fan when reindexing, for example.

The software can use a lot of Memory at times

The software has crashed once or twice, but mostly on Early Access Program versions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Trying it is adopting it

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

"The best"

What do you like best?

There are so many features! But would be 1) Speed 2) Improved intellisense 3) Rectangular selection and multiple cursor 4) VCS integration, 5) Debuggin, 6) Plugins community, and many other things that I don't remember right now.

What do you dislike?

Kind of pricey. It shines as an IDE, but it is trying to be a good single file code editor. And as it is a full IDE every now and then it does consumes a lot of resources (CPU+Memory). I'd also love to have a good integration with the task focusing product TaskTop

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the trial and then you'll end up purchasing the product, just like I did.

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

"Best web ide"

What do you like best?

DEs like WebStorm are bulkier and require a lot of experience to get really efficient with, but once you're good at them they're very powerful. They can do things like if you change a function name in one file, it will sift through your entire project and change the function's references everywhere. They also have great code hinting/autocomplete.

The main thing is the debugger -- ST can handle most of the code completion stuff, and is much faster and lightweight than an IDE. The only reason I see using an IDE is to access its debugger, which IMO is a really good reason to use an IDE. Not enough web developers take advantage of debuggers and are still var_dump'ing or object.inspect'ing.

What do you dislike?

Hard to use at first, after some weeks it becomes the king

"WebStorm Review"

What do you like best?

You can bind commands and programs to the ide. Then you can assign shortcut and menus to thoses commands and programs (super usefull for custom grunt / gulp workflow). It has great git, svn and mercurial support (multiple branch management, log, blame, history and more).

What do you dislike?

Cost money. Moreover, it takes a few seconds to open for the first time (unless you have a ssd)

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's worth it. It's the best IDEs for software development. There's debugger/console inside the IDE. Everything is customizable within the settings GUI (no config file to learn and maintain, the IDE does it for you).

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

Tool to easily add unsupported framework and APIs. It has commercial support for many frameworks (react, angular, node, require and many more)

"A lot of features, but crashes too often"

What do you like best?

- build-it git version control

- a lot of plugins (great community support)

- often updates. WebStom team supports latest javascript and frameworks features.

- easy to setup. If you reinstall the OS - you you can setup WebStorm very fast.

What do you dislike?

- is crashes regularly on my Mac. And I can't submit a crash report from we WebStorm ('send' button is disabled). Lately it crashed regularly (despite the fact that I have a macbook pro with 16 of RAM)

- it consumes a lot of RAM

Recommendations to others considering the product

But if you start using it - you can't quit easy - it's great. But be aware - it's memory heavy. So, if you PC/mac is not powerful enough - consider other solutions.

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

all features in one place - You don't have to use different tools to develop.

"Webstorm - Its a great editor but also great at using all your system resources"

What do you like best?

I like that its produced by a reparable company, it's fast if you have the ram to handle the indexing, and its very flexible.

What do you dislike?

It's built on the Java runtime which means it needs to be given lots of ram, fine if you have 16GB+ but some laptops still only come with 4-8GB.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have a multi-core CPU and at least 16GB of ram

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

It works out of the box with all the major languages I use at work and is constantly updated throughout the year. The major benefit is that it will always work and lets me focus on writing code.

"Excellent JavaScript IDE for front-end and Node.js Development"

What do you like best?

The interface is very similar to other JetBrains IDEs and is very well laid out. It has a great debugger, is very easy to configure to work with different projects, and the built-in source control interface is awesome.

What do you dislike?

Debugging in Node.js can be slow, but that probably has more to do with Node than it does with the IDE.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you work on large JavaScript applications, WebStorm makes it much easier to navigate a large codebase. It also has excellent tools for finding usages of classes, functions, and even framework-specific features like AngularJS controllers.

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

I use WebStorm in place of a text editor for front-end development. It provides a lot of features that you'd expect in a full-featured IDE, such as code completion, syntax highlighting, refactoring, etc.

"Best Node + Web Framework IDE"

What do you like best?

The basics of an IDE are all done right: code completion, syntax highlighting, plugin integration .. and the list goes on. Jetbrains shows excellence through integration with many different environments, a healthy community of people committed to building useful plugins, and seamlessly working cross-platform. The Jetbrains Toolbox, as well as their other IDEs, make learning to use Webstorm cogent.

What do you dislike?

The RESTful tool is not as good as many other tools out there. Also, while the debugger for server side code is excellent, the native debugger for code running in the browser is buggy and rarely works. I often find myself just using the browser's Javascript debugger and juggling many windows.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are options to make even the most VIM dedicated developers feel at home. The settings are customizable enough but do not feel heavy to set up. Sharing settings using repositories is also a great way to save setup time.

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

For developers that are not familiar with Git, Webstorm makes the transition easy and helps manage the basic functions. Simple deployment is also made easy, along with simple database management.

"Review on Webstorm IDE"

What do you like best?

Webstorm is one of my favorite IDE for developing web applications. I started using this IDE during my graduate studies coursework. The best thing about IDE is it is easily linked with GitHub account and once you develop any project using IDE you can easily linked with your GitHub account.

Secondly, it is user-friendly as well as easy to learn. I had developed lot of web applications using variety of frameworks as well as programming languages and they are way easy to develop using webstrom IDE

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there is nothing I didn't like about Webstrom. One thing that is pain is paid subscription. It is little expensive for students. I think it would be great if we keep this IDE as a free for atleast students.

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

I have developed couple of projects using this IDE. Few of the projects were complex and heavy still they were so easy to develop on this IDE. I like the auto prediction feature of it. Currently I am a user of webstrom since 3 to 4 years. I have developed nodejs, angular and c# based web applications on this IDE.

"Good IDE for Web Development "

What do you like best?

Quite a few like - Java script / JQuery, CSS, HTML support is pretty good. Auto code completion etc. Can launch your product html files directly from IDE on different browsers and test it. This helps in testing the Web App while still in Development. Its builtin web server also helps to test the app.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really. Its a good IDE if you are looking to do Web Development. I do not like the fact that you need to switch IDE's for Java and Web Development.

Also if you want to do pure backend development like in Java, I would rather prefer IntelliJ than using Web Storm.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Free trial is limited in nature for few days. I had to get a license to use it for Web Development.

Other than that its a good IDE if you want to do Web Development. I will overall recommend to use this product to anyone looking to do Web Development.

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

Creating new web portal for my company using Web Storm. It was my first time using this IDE and it worked out pretty well. Its Better than PyCharm for web development.

"The smartest editor"

What do you like best?

Use the full power of the modern JavaScript ecosystem – WebStorm’s got you covered! Enjoy the intelligent code completion, on-the-fly error detection, powerful navigation and refactoring for JavaScript, TypeScript, stylesheet languages, and the most popular frameworks

What do you dislike?

Debug your client-side and Node.js apps with ease in the IDE – put breakpoints right in the source code, explore the call stack and variables, set watches, and use the interactive console

Recommendations to others considering the product

Run and debug tests with Karma, Mocha, Protractor, and Jest in WebStorm. Immediately see test statuses right in the editor, or in a handy treeview from which you can quickly jump to the test.

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

Take advantage of linters, build tools, test runners, REST client, and more tools, all deeply integrated with the IDE. But any time you need Terminal, it's also available as an IDE tool window

"Currently the best IDE"

What do you like best?

WebStorm is by far the best IDE available on the market today. It offers a large number of functions and settings, yet is light enough to run on older computers. It is interesting that the computer has an SSD so that the boot and the daily use is fluid, otherwise you can get some slowness, but nothing that hinders the use.

What do you dislike?

Integration with debugging tools could be better, however with a little tweaking you can debug large projects without difficulty. The boot process is a bit slow, and when working on large files or projects with numerous files, indexing also takes a while.

Recommendations to others considering the product

WebStorm is an excellent tool, to make the most of the tool it is important for the computer to have an SSD to speed up the process of indexing files

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

The standardization of an IDE in a company is not easy, each developer has his favorite tool, WebStorm is able to please a large number of developers and facilitate standardization.

"A fully-featured IDE for web development"

What do you like best?

The language support is fantastic, it supports all the configuration I need for developing complex web projects. The integrated support for external JavaScript libraries is a real bonus, so I never need to have more than one project window open.

What do you dislike?

The code analysis can sometimes be a bit laggy, with changes such as an error correction taking several seconds to be updated in the editor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The customisations are really powerful. Take the time to set up your IDE just how you like it and you'll never want to use anything else.

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

It keeps all my development-related tasks in one window, making it easy to see the status of the project at a glance. Developing libraries in tandem with the projects that consume them is very helpful.

"Suberb for web development"

What do you like best?

WebStorm makes accessible to proficient web engineers any new innovation they need to use, and in addition all the correct devices:

Support for CoffeeScript 3.0, to enable you to get the most out of the brevity and lucidness of this JavaScript expansion.

Combination with JSLint that enables new examinations to check the nature of the code.

Support for Node.JS that will enable you to utilize the maximum capacity of this IDE for altering and investigating JavaScript on the server side.

What do you dislike?

Like any great programming nowadays, there's a considerable measure going on. In case you're a capable engineer and OK with a editor or IDE, you'll have the capacity to get off to a brisk begin with WebStorm. Be that as it may, on the off chance that you truly need to become more acquainted with WebStorm, there's somewhat of an expectation to absorb information (and let's be realistic, you're paying for the permit to receive the most in return). I utilized WebStorm for around 2 years and I have an inclination that I scarcely split the surface.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pull out all the stops on the off chance that you need to have better coding norms. It can enable you to import ESLint too which can convey standard rules to the coding development.This was the best thing which transpired as JS engineer. This is a designers enchant

What do you like best?

I'm already a big fan of their other products, and I just love all the powerful shortcuts and features in this. If you are ready to stop working in less powerful text editors like Sublime and start using a real IDE, use this.

What do you dislike?

It's hard to say that I dislike anything really.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make use of the powerful keybindings. It makes ALL the difference in using it effectively. You won't realize how powerful the software is until you make use of those keybindings.

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

"WebStorm IDE Excellent!"

What do you like best?

WebStorm makes available to professional web developers any new technology they want to use, as well as all the right tools:

Support for CoffeeScript 3.0 (including navigation, code wizard, refactoring, bug checking and more) to help you get the most out of the conciseness and readability of this JavaScript extension.

Integration with JSLint that allows new inspections to verify the quality of the code.

Support for Node.JS that will allow you to use the full potential of this IDE for editing and debugging JavaScript on the server side.

What do you dislike?

Worst of all is being a commercial product, with high prices depending on the type of license. It's not expensive, but comparing what you bring against free options like the aforementioned Komodo Edit may not be worth it. This aspect is complicated, if we develop with different technologies, because unlike other environments, if we use for example PHP, we will need PhpStorm.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A very convenient feature is that it automatically saves the changes, so at the time of coding we have a less concern. As defects, the main one is that it uses a .idea folder to save your preferences at the project level, so we have to take it into account when cleaning it prior to distribution. The performance could be better too.

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

Reluctant to the idea of an IDE programmed in Java, I must admit that compared to similar options Netbeans or Eclipse, the performance is very good.

"Good Product if you have enough RAM"

What do you like best?

In my opinion Intellisense is the best feature of this IDE, another great feature is the goto declaration perfectly working also for javascript code.

I also use very frequently the "open in browser" feature in order to see some template created by the UI team.

The search in all project is indeed very fast after the indexing phase (the best as I seen up to now).

The integrate teminal is also very useful to avoid the frequent switch between the windows.

What do you dislike?

If you have no enough memory on your pc the initialization (or when switch between branch frequently) phase is very slow, this is for the indexing process that scan all your project files in order to bring to us a faster "search in all project" feature.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Is the best tool for front end developer out there but you need a good pc having enough RAM to support it.

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

The git integration is great, the are numerous plugin useful for many template library that made your daly job a lot greater.

I also suggest to use the integration to run the test-suite automatically just clicking a button in the top-bar.

"Great IDE for Front-End Development"

What do you like best?

Although WebStorm is feature-rich and takes a bit of time to get comfortable with (see below), it's quick and easy to get started with it's basic functionality. As you get more familiar and comfortable with the product, the additional development features really start to come in handy.

What do you dislike?

Like any good software these days, there's a lot going on. If you're a competent developer and comfortable with a editor or IDE, you'll be able to get off to a quick start with WebStorm. However, if you really want to get to know WebStorm, there's a bit of a learning curve (and let's be honest, you're paying for the license to get the most out of it). I used WebStorm for about 2 years and I feel like I just barely cracked the surface.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're development focus is the front-end and have some extra time to get familiar with a big IDE, give WebStorm a try. If you're employer will pay for the license, why not??

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

I used WebStorm in my role as a Front-End Developer. WebStorm provided an easy-to-use interface with many features that came in handy for front-end development, all in one place. Once I got my bearings with the product, it certainly helped speed up my development process.

"Dense, convenient, and mostly intuitive"

What do you like best?

The file search is extremely powerful and the refactor protection has helped prevent innumerable bugs I'm sure. Additionally, the environment's ability to jump to function definitions and invocations is incredibly helpful!

What do you dislike?

I know this would be tricky, but would love to see a way to set available libraries that would remove "unresolved function or method"/"missing import statement" warnings - i.e. project has angular but not referenced in file.

The preferences/settings UI seems to be in a constant state of flux so documentation and stack overflow instructions seem to go out of date pretty quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Webstorm does a great job as a complete HTML/CSS/JS IDE - but with that it feels a little more rigid and may take longer to load that sime editors like Sublime/NotePad

What do you like best?

Really useful, easy to install, a lot of different options, laguages suppots and types of projects. You will have to programm on it for sure independently of your project!

A little bit heavy to start, sometimes it need a lo of ram and cpu, but its so nice if your pc is okey

You should try this product and also others from the company IntelliJ. There are a lot that are so nice for programming!!

"IDE toolbox of a Front-End Developer"

What do you like best?

I think the best subtle property of the Webstorm is that when you want to chase an argument of root of the function you can just do it with a mouse click.

What do you dislike?

It is a bit slow runner. Because of more IDE benefits than its competitors, it is running a bit slow on the average computer.

"The Best of smart IDE for programming"

What do you like best?

If you are good programmer, you need good tools. Yes you can use Sublime text with some plugins or Atom, in worst some Microsoft things like visual basic. But If you are smart, lazy and need to be faster, try WebStorm IDE. You can try EAP version which is free and auto-updated. If you are back-end programmer, you can you PhpStorm, also there is IDE for Java, python, ruby etc.

Every one find their way, because there is also plugins to expand your abilities.

By the time, this IDE teach your style and predict your next step or movement. I love this shi* because is everything I need :)

What do you dislike?

I have some problem with Czech characters in terminal window. Also I missing better way to create new branch in SVN projects. But this is bugs, witch will be repair in next few updates :)

You may dislike the price of this software, I own license from some companion where I win it. But If you are working at some IT company, lets try business way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As company you may think about effectivity in your teams. WebStorm could organize all your IT part. Because If one of your team can work with this software, everyone else could teach how to be faster and better programmer.

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

It is fast and since it is meant for non-compiled languages it has helped me catch any coding errors while development. Unit tests and debugging are extremely user friendly for most of the Node js application development which i have carried out.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't have a community edition unlike say IntelliJ, which can make it difficult for students to use it.

Go for it if you want to have better coding standards. It can help you import ESLint too which can bring standard guidelines to the coding development.This was the best thing which happened to me as JS developer. This is a developers delight.

What do you like best?

I can create a react app, an angular app and node.js easily with it. I don't need to worry about installing different plugins before I can use it since it has everything coupled together.

It uses a lot of memory and there is no community version for it yet. It may slow down systems with less ram and processor speed.

Webstorm is the best IDE for any javascript application, just like JetBrains provide solutions for different IDEs, you can never go wrong with Webstorm.

"Promising IDE for JS"

What do you like best?

I'm a big fan of the refactoring capabilities that are being offered by the webstorm for javascript based projects. It also has an inbuilt bash shell which will save us from context switching to bash terminal when we need to execute bash based commands. And also lesser known features like scratchpad, productivity score help us in using WebStorm better.

What do you dislike?

The foremost problem is the enormous memory footprint of IDE which sometimes result in the form of application hanging out.Though the refactoring capabilities provided are the best available in the market, sometimes they can be faulty which pushes us to be more conscious while using them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Setting aside the problem of having large memory footprint, the benefits offered by WebStorm far outweigh the cons. Overall, a fantastic solution for JavaScript based projects.

Dark mode. I mean everyone likes dark mode. Probably my favourite feature is Node.js integration. It makes it very easy to run, debug and test units for Node.js apps. The automatic refactoring is an other thing I really like.

What do you dislike?

The IDE itself kinda reminds me of the Android Studio IDE which I dislike because of the colors. It's probably just some getting used to but it's bugging me somehow.

You should definitely give it a try. Everyone likes different things. If you're doing Node.js, then go for it.

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

When developing APIs or anything for back-end, we mostly use Node.js so it's WebStorm makes it easier and faster for us to develop.

"The most complete web IDE I've used"

What do you like best?

Really good typescript and angularjs support. The code autocomplete and refactoring help you to avoid silly errors. You can debug from within the editor which is helpful, and it has integrations with your tests so they can automatically run with code changes.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it takes a while for bugs to get addressed. The documentation is not always helpful and there doesn't seem to be a very active user community.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Students, teachers, open source projects can get a year free license. Discounts for non-profits too.

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

I use it for writing Javascript, Typescript, HTML, SASS, etc. It has sped up my development because I can do most of my code authoring, testing, debugging, versioning, and deployment all from a single application.

"Writing js with a proper IDE"

What do you like best?

Really nice features for navigating code and refactoring. The IDE has a lot of plugin for most of the popular frameworks nowadays.

What do you dislike?

It'd be nice to have it properly integrated with IntelliJ IDEA as a plugin, so you don't need two IDEs

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you don't code js so often, IntelliJ or Visual Studio Code are nice. But for heavy js development, this is your tool

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

Ease js development (frontend and backend).

"Great full featured IDE for web development"

What do you like best?

It has everything I need; easy refactoring, SVN integration, good code completion, helpful errors and messages

What do you dislike?

Some of the warnings are a little too nitpicky, and I haven't found a way to turn off just some of them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Absolutely worth getting

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

When we began transitioning our application from Flash to HTML5 we tried out a few different IDEs and WebStorm was by far the best. It's full featured and pleasant to use, and doesn't get in the way of coding too much while still being helpful.

"As powerful as an IDE can be"

What do you like best?

WebStorn provides all the tools I need for web development, from great smart autocomplete to deployment. It has an intuitive yet verbose version control integration, tools for testing, deployment (even a local web server), terminal, HTTP client for testing, code style and much more.

What do you dislike?

All those tools do take a lot of resources.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It might seem excessive to pay for a coding tool at times, but this purchase would be definitely worth it. Just make sure your machine can run it :)

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

WebStorm saves time from setting up plugins, since it ships with most of features supported out-of-the-box. This developers spend more time actually developing.

"Lightweight IDE for Angular development"

What do you like best?

As someone who develops with IntelliJ IDEA and ReSharper, this product is an absolute blast to use for TypeScript development. The yearly subscription cost is affordable too for a single developer (though it might be best to purchase the All-Products license from JetBrains instead.)

What do you dislike?

I have nothing negative to say regarding JetBrains products, they make my job as a developer lots of fun. All of their products also work on Windows, OSX and even Linux (with exception to AppCode that is.)

Recommendations to others considering the product

I also teach as a professor. JetBrains offers an incredible student program. Students love to use their products when working on their assignments.

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

I'm able to build Angular 2/4 applications very rapidly with this tool. TypeScript is so easy to code with using WebStorm. Adding imports to a file is as easy as "command-enter", just like any other JetBrains product.

"Feels lightweight, great debugging and language/framework plugins. "

What do you like best?

Unlike other IDEs like Eclipse, Webstorm feels very lightweight similar to sublime or atom. It recognizes the syntax the the particular language or framework your using. Moreover, running and debugging is easy to set up with the environment, given that you can download particular plugins for the language/framework. Smart tabs are also useful if your team is particular about spacing.

What do you dislike?

On bigger projects webstorm can feel a bit bloated, especially when it re-indexes randomly. Copy and pasting is can be horrendous in webstorm: sometimes it just does it 'wrong' and can completely reformat your code in an unpredictable way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Might not be worth the money, but my best IDE experience for web yet.

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

Just writing code.

"Fantastic JavaScript IDE, especially for Angular.js development"

What do you like best?

What a fantastic IDE. JavaScript language support is top notch as is it's integration with core js libraries like Angular. Git support (and other VC software I believe. I only used Git however) is great and is really helpful being able to diff files, see the history tree, ability to revert back to previous commits etc, all within the app. I loved the like up declaration ability so I see exactly where something (whether be a dependency, method, or style) is declared. If you've ever used Eclipse's lookup feature it's very similar. The plugin library is quite large and pretty much covers most any feature you might be looking for, especially great VIM key binding support. There were only a few keybindings that I weren't supported but they were more edge case and I found I didn't really need them. Color theming is very robust, allowing you to define even the smallest of a language's feature different colors or styles. Grunt integration is great and I love being able to launch my tasks directly from a Grunt task running window.

What do you dislike?

More complaints about JetBrains rather than WebStorm itself. I have a distaste for subscription based models as JetBrains is now doing, but I do like their perpetual license policy, which helps mollify having to pay every year. The IDE, due to it's large size nature, can be kind of sluggish at time if I'm processing a lot. Also, since JetBrains has a lot of products to work on, bugs oftentimes not be worked on for a very long time. I've been waiting for one particular bug (distraction free mode not producing a giant gutter on the left side of the screen) for over 2 years.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great product. Well worth the money if you like working within an IDE environment and if you are developing JS based apps.

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

Full scale eCommerce web application.

"Web storm for Loopback debug"

What do you like best?

I like the debug I can do with the IDE, also the way how I can access to the different files as a function call.

Also the interface is very great, I like the search, and the shortcuts have the application. I think this app help a lot for work as professional with Javascript, allow understand how to works the async functions and promises.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the not easy configuration for FE when I need run a new project, or Fe project. I think too is necessary a panel for run the UT. One thing is the app sometimes consuming 1 or 2gb de ram, that is a lot when you are using multiples programs running to the same time trying to test your app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Is a great tool, if you are a full stack developer or Backend developer working with node or some framework based on node like express, this is a great tool, that help a lot to discover bugs or behaviors are not the right, and also can debug better the application you are developing. I think is one of the best tools I used for can work with nodeJS and javascript.

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

I can detect more easily bugs or weird behaviors for the code, and allow me make better implementations and fix critical errors on a quick way. I work using loopback and the UX with this is very great, now, programming with Javascript and node is very funny when you have a tool like webStorm.

"Powerful Javascript Editor"

What do you like best?

Syntax highlighting

Different themes (esp. the dark themes with contrasting colors are nice)

Auto Deployments

Testing Restful services

In built SSH/Terminal tools

In-Built version control.

What do you dislike?

The pricing is a bit high. We can get most of the features in VSCode or Atom for free

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ease of development for a bit more price.

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

It improves the web development process by automating some of the deployment and version controlling instead of switching to different apps/console while developing.

"Well built mostly great product."

What do you like best?

The customization is absolutely excellent in in IntelliJ. Most of the settings for different servers, languages, and other things are localized to the project so your environment doesn't become affected by the plethora of project specific settings you need. It also has setting synchronization (so if you are like me, you do projects on the side) so making sure your IDE is exactly like you like it on any computer is super easy. Search anywhere works as expected, the software is regularly updated and support for the latest technologies are added to the application very very quickly. Code refactoring mechanisms work as expected, there is built-in documentation engines for many languages and the templating system for snippets is absolutely phenomenal. With IntelliJ, I honestly don't need anything else to build applications especially since Docker is supported natively as well!

What do you dislike?

The documentation is not good at all. A lot of the power of IntelliJ is hidden in the very deep documentation. The community behind IntelliJ is really quiet and documentation to help extend it is abysmal. Also, the variable stuff for different servers (like path variables) does not work AT ALL.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just jump in. You won't find the power of webstorm the first day because it's just that big. Start with a small project and click around. You'll find you'll start developing software faster and faster.

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

Building projects is a cinch and I really don't need anything else to do web engineering.

"WebStorm for React Native Projects"

What do you like best?

I chose WebStorm when I started developing for React Native. WebStorm provides many great features and has the familiarity I expected in a JetBrains product. It made the transition from Android Studio very easy and pleasant.

What do you dislike?

I don't have a lot of complaints about WebStorm at this point.

Recommendations to others considering the product

WebStorm is a great option for web development. It's versatile in its language support and makes development easy.

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

React Native is a very interesting technology without a defacto IDE. WebStorm has proved to be a terrific option. WebStorm also works for many other popular languages. I use WebStorm pretty much anytime I'm not working on native Android or iOS apps.

Real time debugging feature is very helpful. We do full stack, so this feature is helpful when adjusting the look and feel of the front end of our web apps. Sometimes you are off by a few pixels, and this saves time.

What do you dislike?

"WebStorm beats Sublime Text"

What do you like best?

Oh, what I like about WebStorm is many things which make a developer's life way easier:

- Code autocomplete

- Jump to source

- Find function usage

- Easy debugging

- Syntax check

- Watch LESS and compile

- Watch jade and compile

- Automatic deployment to the remote server

- AngularJS support (!): kump from ng-controller in a jade template to the implementation in js file, how cool is that!

This list goes on and on

What do you dislike?

I don't really like how the updates are delivered. Would be much better if they were downloaded automatically. Currently, you have to download each new version (even minor update) manually and replace the old file. At least, that's how it works in OSX

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't forget to switch to the dark colour scheme. I believe it is more healthy (or less impactful) for your eyes due to less brightness getting to your eyelids.

As for me, over time I've designed my own colour scheme and using it everywhere. Simply do the same - once configured to your needs, make sure you export it and store it somewhere, say on github.

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

They had to do one thing at JetBrains, and they totally succeeded in it. This thing - the ultimate code editor for front-end developers. I was lucky enough to get an open-source license for my project.

"Good enough for real javascript development"

What do you like best?

I like the way you are always connected between your functions/methods among the files - depending on the arquitecture software you are using on - it always relies on getting a straightforward way to find out a specific function of a certain file.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve at first. But once you have experience working with - works as a charm. You will never use another tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is perfect when working on big projects.

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

It's really good integrating all the things needed to do software development at all. The main benefit relies on the way it integrates several tools such as Git or Gulp. Webstorm can give you a really good set of tools when using git - both CMD and GUI. It enables several consoles instances and you can configure different run-times to use gulp

"Great product, my daily driver"

What do you like best?

The debugger and test-running integrations really set this IDE apart from simple text editors like Sublime or Atom. You can debug right from within the editor and step through your code easily. You can also set your tests to run with every single code change. These two abilities alone are what would make me choose WebStorm over simple text editors, but there are also plenty of other features worth switching for, such as decent Intellisense, excellent file navigation and super useful refactoring tools.

What do you dislike?

On slower computers the IDE can be a resource hog. I also find it to be a lot less pretty than other editors like Sublime or Atom, even with some theme tinkering. It also just feels quite bulky. When it comes to editing simple text files or needing some scratch space, I still find myself using Vim instead.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to learn the keyboard shortcuts. They're not super intuitive, but once you've got them down pat you'll be flying.

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

I'm trying to make my coding experience as enjoyable and efficient as possible. WebStorm is a pleasure to use, and its various tools make me much more productive as well.

"Best IDE for JS Development"

What do you like best?

WebStorm offers all the great things with developing Java application in Intellij, such as find usage, refactoring, indexing, jump to definition, etc. Having these features make understanding code and doing development work so much faster. It also loads applications and indexes them very quickly.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really unless you want to get into adding fancier features like running NPM commands directly via IDE interface, and even that's possible to certain extent.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely use it you can get licensing or are able to meet all your needs with the free version.

What do you like best?

WebStorm has the most features of any web IDE I've worked with. Running unit tests, grunt tasks, great refactoring tools, solid version control support. Constant updates for the latest web technologies. Great local history support.

What do you dislike?

It's not a native app, so sometimes it can seem like it has some UI quirks. Occasional crashes. Decent amount of memory consumption.

As a lof of JetBrains software it can be a little heavy on the CPU, though not as much as IntelliJ.

WebStorm is useful for programming and writing code in an IDE. WebStorm has a lot of good features like good UI, good user experience, and it is easy to use.

What do you dislike?

WebStorm is not very popular, and therefore very few other colleagues use it.

WebStorm is good for coding and debugging. It is a useful tool and good IDE. It is good for writing code. Also, it has good auto complete. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to write code or debug their code when there are issues. WebStorm is not free though, which is bad. I would not recommend paying for it if you have to pay yourself, because there are so many other options for IDEs to use that are free to download online.

"Another IDE from jetbrains for Web"

What do you like best?

From the jetbrains framework, this has phenomenal code completion, code intelligence, refactoring capabilities. Usually I use a mere text editor for web projects but if I need something closely coupled and for big projects, I use webstorm. It has same features of the text editor, Atom. Multi cursor select via alt + j or manually by alt + click. Smart contextual completion for CSS , ability to auto reference class names from HTML in CSS and js. As with their intellij or clion, webstorm is awesome for javascript. Can debug node projects from in itself. Simply, it has all the bells and whistles of an excellent IDE.

What do you dislike?

Slow startup, gets in my way sometimes(problem with all IDEs), I could buy rubymine and still get almost same set of features, auto-complete takes a while to pop up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can try it for one month as that is the trial period. If you have used anything from jetbrains, you will feel right at home.

"WebStrom"

What do you like best?

A very good IDE for front end development. It helps is determining the reason of syntax error by directly pointing to the line. Autocompletion is available for function and variable name. Supports moment js and Jasmine completely. Bookmark and search work well. Autodetects syntax error.

What do you dislike?

When the file gets really big, this system slows down and it takes some time for webstorm to reload. Little expensive though students can get it for free for 1 year. Also, sometimes it has issues at load time. Fails to provide exact location of syntax error. Highlight text feature is missing. Quiet Expensive.

What do you dislike?

Slow. At least on my system ,,, and this is true for all the intelliJ products, it hangs for a moment here and there just a little too much. It is pretty stable though ... better than it use to be. I haven't had it crash in a long time.

WebStorm offers some of the best code legibility and navigation features of any product I've used. It's clean, fast, and intuitive.

"Great tool but resource heavy and lighter options give it a run for it's money"

What do you like best?

I enjoyed webstorm a few years ago when visual studio support for web (html/js) editing was lacking at best. It provided a nice level of intellisense support along with refactoring capabilities and simple syntax highlighting/recognition that was not available in other tools.

What do you dislike?

It is based on java and thus uses a ton of system resources to do its job.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would consider just using VSCode or another lightweight editor at this time. The cost/value of the tool is starting to lessen. Also since it uses so many computer resources to do its job, it can be a real drag on one's already heavily taxed development environment.

"Very User Friendly"

What do you like best?

Amazing shortcuts and autocomplete features with the ability to customize the IDE as per our requirements.

What do you dislike?

The editor is very heavy, i.e. if you run 3-4 instances of webstorm together, it is definitely going to slow down your computer

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

All the code that i write is written using Webstorm IDE.

"Fantastic JS IDE"

What do you like best?

I liked the easy transition from using Visual Studio for .NET development to WebStorm for JS development. The learning curve was minimal although I'm probably not using all the capabilities.

What do you dislike?

WebStorm seems to be a little slow during startup.

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

We are addressing JS IDE with WebStorm. The cost is less than Visual Studio MSDN and it works better for our team.

"The best IDE for web development in a team (Git)"

What do you like best?

- It increases code quality and reduce dev time because of JsTestDriver

- Live Edit plugin to see live changes

- Search for all the actions you can perform (text search - Ctrl+Shift+A)

What do you dislike?

Its relatively slow to boot and indexing takes time. Opens up a new project IDE everytime if I open a file outside current project.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly consider Jetbrains products if you're in a team environment using Git. Webstorms is highly useful for node applications development and react app development which I have personally tested.

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

I'm developing cloud based enterprise application. Its really helpful for a big application like ours to view everything as a single project and the git integration is highly helpful for instant collaboration. I never use external git commands when I'm in this IDE.

"The IDE For JavaScript Developer"

What do you like best?

Webstorm is built on the same platform as Intellij. To those who have used Intellij for Java developer, using Webstorm will feel right at home. I also like the rich set of plugins that are available for the vast amount of the Javascript technologies out there.

What do you dislike?

Could not really think of any. Really wish there is a free version of the software, similar to what they have for Intellij.

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

This tool really ease the development for Javascript. The support for the language is excellent, which allows building high quality softwares faster.
