For the past year, we’ve been developing a font that would let you code more comfortably, without straining your eyes too much. Please welcome JetBrains Mono, a new open-source typeface made specifically for coding! WebStorm 2020.1 ships with this new typeface selected by default.
We’ve added a new Zen viewing mode to help you focus completely on your code. Use it whenever you want to work in a full-screen editor with the source code centered and the UI elements hidden to minimize distraction.
You don’t have to explicitly invoke the Documentation popup anymore. It’s now shown when you hover over a symbol, so you can find the related documentation faster. If there’s a problem in your code, the popup will also offer a quick-fix that can be applied to solve it.
Ever wanted to use the IDE to edit a file quickly? With the new LightEdit mode, you can open an individual file in the text editor window without having to load the whole project.
If you don’t have the status bar hidden and use it every so often, you can now decide what exactly you’d like to see on it. Right-click the status bar and remove the elements you don’t need.
In WebStorm 2020.1, you’ll find support for the components defined using the Composition API
from Vue 3. In the template section of the component, the IDE will properly resolve and
autocomplete symbols returned from the
setup() function of the component, including properties
in the reactive state, computed properties, and refs.
If you’re working with the Vuex library, you’ll now get completion suggestions for symbols from the Vuex store when editing Vue components. Plus, WebStorm will let you jump to the definition of getters, mutations, and actions.
To help you work with Ivy and other Angular 9 features, we’ve added full support for them in WebStorm 2020.1. You can use features like code completion and auto imports in TypeScript and template files with no configuration.
Add import statements for components defined via
React.memo by placing the caret on a component
and pressing Alt+Enter. And if you use Material-UI components in your project, you'll
now see completion suggestions when creating styles.
With the updated Introduce Field refactoring, you can see a preview of changes in the context of the code you’re working with. Plus, it now takes fewer clicks to apply the refactoring.
WebStorm 2020.1 comes with TypeScript 3.8 bundled and introduces full support for the new TypeScript
3.8 features, such as type-only imports/exports, private fields, and top-level
With the new Run on save for files option, WebStorm will apply Prettier formatting to all files specified in the IDE settings and edited in the project as soon as you save those files. File watchers or third-party plugins are no longer required for this.
To make it easier to work with the built-in terminal emulator, WebStorm now lets you split terminal sessions vertically and horizontally. Keep an eye on the output of several tools that are currently in use without switching between tabs.
Have teammates who need to work with your project? Share your run configuration with them. WebStorm 2020.1 gives you even more freedom with this as you can now store your run configurations in any project folder of your choice.
We’ve extended the initial Yarn 2 support, which was introduced in WebStorm 2019.3. Now, all symbols are properly resolved and can be autocompleted in TypeScript projects when dependencies are installed using Yarn 2 with the Plug’n’Play mode.
Want to make your commit history more linear and comprehensible? This just got a lot easier thanks to the updated, more interactive Rebasing Commits dialog. It displays the actions that can be applied to each commit, and lets you review the commit details and the diff as well as quickly reset the applied changes.
In order to streamline the commit flow, we’ve developed a new Commit tool window for handling all commit-related tasks. It’s enabled for new installations by default. If you’re an existing user, you’ll see a prompt in the modal Commit dialog allowing you to quickly switch to the new UI.
