WebStorm 9.0.0 Web Help

Basics and definitions

If certain coding guidelines exist in a company, one has to follow these guidelines when creating source code. WebStorm helps maintain the required code style.

The code styles are defined at the project level and at the global level.

Project level

Settings at the project level are grouped under the Project scheme, which is predefined and is marked in bold font. The Project style scheme applies to the current project only.

The default scheme cannot be changed! When any modifications are made, WebStorm automatically creates a copy of the default scheme. If you want to use a different project level scheme, choose the desired scheme and copy its settings to project.

Global level

Settings at the global level are grouped under the predefined Default scheme, and any other scheme created by the user. The global settings are used when the user doesn't want to keep code style settings with the project, and share them.

Configuring code style for a language

To configure code style for a language
  1. In Settings, click Code Style, and then click the language in question.
  2. Choose the code style scheme to be used as the base for your custom coding style for the selected language.
  3. Browse through the tabs of the selected language page, and configure code style preferences for it.
