Creating and Managing Projects
Whatever you do in WebStorm, you do that in the context of a project. A project is an organizational unit that represents a complete software solution. It serves as a basis for coding assistance, bulk refactoring, coding style consistency, etc.
WebStorm does not support direct editing of files on remote hosts. Therefore to work with remote sources in WebStorm, you need to download them, open the folder where they are stored, and arrange them in a WebStorm project, as described in Creating a Project from Existing Local Sources. To keep your local and remote sources synchronized, configure automatic upload using the Upload changed files automatically to the default server drop-down list in the Options dialog box.
