Command Line Tool Support
WebStorm supports running commands of Zend Framework Tool, Symfony, and other third-party and custom tools. WebStorm provides completion and parameter info via an XML descriptor. Although WebStorm provides a dedicated tool window or console for running commands, it is strongly recommended that you use the built-in local Terminal instead.
