JetBrains WebStorm 4.0 in Harmony with ECMAScript

The intelligent JavaScript IDE gives web developers a way to stay one step ahead of the curve, supporting the latest ECMAScript features and Code Coverage in JS unit testing

Prague, Czech Republic, April 17, 2012 — JetBrains®,the creators of IntelliJ IDEA, ReSharper and other intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools for software developers, have announced the general availability of WebStorm 4.0, an innovative JavaScript IDE.

WebStorm is already known for what many developers call "reading your thoughts," or anticipating your next step. All the while, WebStorm has kept pace with the latest development technology trends. This release is no exception, as it includes support of the newest features in the popular scripting language ECMAScript Harmony.

"We always try to adopt best practices that not only influence your productivity but also raise your code quality, and we inspire other developers to do the same," said Alexey Gopachenko, WebStorm project lead. "In WebStorm 4.0, we introduced Code Coverage for JavaScript Unit Test, which lets you see how much code is untested — right as you code. The big idea is to prevent bugs instead of catching them."

Additional key features of WebStorm 4.0 include:

  • HTML5 Boilerplate and other Web Application Templates
  • Easier JavaScript Library Scope Configuration
  • Smarter ordering of JavaScript completion options
  • Custom code folding regions
