The page is available when the Meteor plugin is enabled. The plugin is bundled with WebStorm and activated by default. If the plugin is not activated, enable it on the Plugins page of the Settings / Preferences Dialog as described in Enabling and Disabling Plugins.

ItemDescription
Meteor executable In this field, specify the location of the Meteor executable file (see Installing Meteor).
Automatically exclude ".meteor/local" directory on open project
  • By default, the check box is selected and the .meteor/local folder, which is intended for storing the built application, is automatically marked as excluded and is not involved in indexing.
  • Clear the check box to have WebStorm show the .meteor/local folder and its contents in the Project tool window.

By default, excluded files are shown in the project tree. To have the .meteor/local folder hidden, click the viewMode button on the toolbar of the Project tool window and remove a tick next to the Show Excluded Files option.

Enable Meteor 'Hot code push'
  • Select this check box to activate the native Meteor hot code pushes functionality and thus have the changes made to have the client-side code during a debugging session applied. By default, the check box is selected.

    Changes made to the server-side code are uploaded through the WebStorm Live Edit functionality, see Configuring the Update Policy for the Server Side Code.

  • When the check box is cleared, WebStorm does not provide any way to apply the changes made to the client-side code during a debugging session.
Automatically import Meteor packages as external library
  • When the check box is selected, WebStorm automatically imports the external packages from the meteor/packages file. As a result, WebStorm provides full range coding assistance: resolves references to Meteor built-in functions, for example, check(true), and to functions from third-party packages, provides proper syntax and error highlighting, supports debugging with source maps, etc.
  • When this check box is cleared, WebStorm does not automatically import the external packages from the meteor/packages file. As a result no coding assistance is provided. To improve the situation, open the meteor/packages file in the editor and click the Import packages as library link or run the meteor --update command.
By default, the check box is selected.
Weak search for Spacebars templates
  • Select this check box to enable WebStorm to search inside Spacebars templates. When this check box is selected and you invoke the Go to Declaration action on a helper, WebStorm displays a list of all occurrences of this helper in templates. Choose the relevant one from the list.

  • When you invoke Got to Declaration with this check box cleared, WebStorm does not perform any search and displays a tooltip which the following message: Cannot find declaration to go to.
