With spy-js you can see the full list of the events that triggered code execution, then dig into the stack trace for an event and explore the highlighted trace in the source code.
Spy-js works for websites opened in any browsers on your machine or mobile device.
Use it to debug and profile your code and efficiently identify any possible bottlenecks.
Multiple Carets and Selections
Now WebStorm allows you to put carets in multiple locations in your file and edit code simultaneously in these positions.
With Select next occurrence action, you can add the next occurrence of the current word to the selection and then easily edit or replace it.
Smart autocompletion and live templates work with multiple carets and selections, taking your productivity even higher.
Using Grunt as a task runner in your project? WebStorm 8 brings a new Grunt console: you can browse through the full list of Grunt tasks defined in your project and execute any task or any group of tasks by simply double-clicking it.
With integrated Bower package manager, you’ll be able to search for, install and manage client-side libraries and frameworks for your project with ease, right in the IDE.
For those who try to keep up with EcmaScript 6, WebStorm 8 improves support for Harmony module loader.
As always, all the covered improvements will also be available in IntelliJ IDEA, PhpStorm, RubyMine, PyCharm and AppCode, either out of the box or as a plugin, with the upcoming releases.
