Using CVS Integration

With the CVS integration enabled, you can perform basic CVS operations from inside WebStorm.

In this section:


  • WebStorm comes bundled with CVS plugin. This plugin is turned on by default. If it is not, make sure that the plugin is enabled.
  • WebStorm's CVS integration does not require a standalone CVS client. All you need is an account in your CVS repository.
  • CVS integration is enabled for the current project root or directory.

CVS Support

  • When CVS integration with WebStorm is enabled, the CVS item appears on the VCS menu, and on the context menus of the Editor and Project views.
  • The files in the folders under the CVS control are highlighted according to their status. See File Status Highlights for file status highlighting conventions.
  • Modifications results are shown in the Version Control tool window.
  • When using CVS integration, it is helpful to open the Version Control tool window. The Console tab displays the following data:
    • All commands generated based on the settings you specify through the WebStorm user interface.
