WebStorm 2016.1 Help

Settings Repository

File | Settings | Tools | Settings Repository

Use this page to configure the Settings Repository feature that allows you to share your IDE settings between different instances of WebStorm (or other IntelliJ platform-based) products installed on different computers.

Auto Sync

Select this option if you want your local settings to be automatically synchronized with the settings stored in the repository each time you perform an Update Project or a Push operation, or when you close your project or exit WebStorm.

If this option is disabled, you can manually update your settings by choosing VCS | Sync Settings from the main menu.

Read-only sources

Use this section to configure additional repositories containing any types of settings you want to share, including live templates, file templates, schemes, deployment options, etc.

These repositories cannot be overwritten or merged, just used as a source of settings as is.

Use the following controls to manage the read-only repositories:

  • add_icon: click this button to add the URL of the GitHub repository that contains the settings you want to share.
  • delete: click this button to remove the selected repository from the list.
  • edit: click this button to edit the URL of the selected source.
  • arrowUp / arrowDown: use these buttons to move up/down in the list.
  • copy: click this button to clone the selected URL.
