WebStorm 8.0.0 Web Help

Besides working from within WebStorm, it is possible to perform certain actions "offline", without actually launching the IDE. This way you can:

To launch a code inspection from the command line
  • Specify the following command line arguments:
    • Path to the launcher: specify the full path to one of the following launchers (which reside under the bin directory of your WebStorm installation):
      • For Windows: inspect.bat
      • For UNIX and Mac: inspect.sh
    • Project file path is the full path to the .idea directory of the project to be inspected.
    • Inspection profile path is the full path to the profile, against which the project should be inspected. The inspection profiles are stored under USER_HOME\.WebStormXX\config\inspection
    • Output path is the full path to an existing directory where the report will be stored.
    • Options. You can specify:
      • The directory to be inspected -d <full path to the subdirectory>
      • The verbosity level of output -vX, where X is 0 for quiet, 1 for noisy and 2 for extra noisy.

    Note

    Please note that you have to specify full paths, relative paths are not accepted.

Examples

Windows

C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\<WebStorm home>\bin\inspect.bat
                E:\SampleProjects\MetersToInchesConverter E:\Work\MyProject\.idea\inspectionProfiles\Project_Default.xml
                E:\Work\MyProject\inspection-results-dir -v2 -d E:\SampleProjects\MetersToInchesConverter\subdirectory
            

MacOS

/Applications/WebStorm.app/bin/inspect.sh ~/IdeaProjects/MyTestProject
                ~/Library/Preferences/WebStorm/inspection/Default.xml ~/IdeaProjects/MyTestProject/results-dir -v2
            
To view differences using command line diff tool
  • In the command line, type the following:
                        <WebStorm> diff <path1> <path2>
                    
    where:
    • <WebStorm> is the platform-specific product launcher
    • <path1>, <path2> are full paths to the files to be compared.

Examples

Windows

            WebStorm.exe diff C:\SamplesProjects\MetersToInchesConverter\src\javascript\numbers.js
            C:\SamplesProjects\MetersToInchesConverter\src\coffeescript\numbers.coffee
        

MacOS

            /Applications/WebStorm.app/Contents/MacOS/idea diff ~/Documents/file1.txt ~/Documents/file2.txt
        
To open file for editing
  • In the command line, type the following:
                        <WebStorm> <path1> --line<number> <path2>
                    
    where:
    • <WebStorm> is the platform-specific product launcher
    • <path1> is the path to the project that contains the desired file
    • <number> is the number of the line, where the caret should rest
    • <path2> is the path to the file to be opened

Examples

Windows

            WebStorm.exe C:\SamplesProjects\MetersToInchesConverter --line 3
            C:\SamplesProjects\MetersToInchesConverter\src\javascript\numbers.js
        

Macos

            /Applications/WebStorm.app/ ~/IdeaProjects/MyTestProject --line 3 ~/IdeaProjects/MyTestProject/file1.txt
