WebStorm 9.0.0 Web Help

The command line tools that are available from WebStorm are listed in the Command Line Tool Support page of the Settings dialog box. Integration with command line tools is provided at the WebStorm level, so once configured, a tool can be used in all your WebStorm projects. Just activate and de-activate when necessary depending on the needs of each specific project.

You can update the command definitions of a tool and have the .xml definition file validated right in the WebStorm editor.
