WebStorm 5.0, a very powerful HTML5 IDE

WebStorm 5.0 has just been released. It's an invaluable tool if your project reaches a certain complexity level. It supports refactoringexternal libraries, auto-completion, sass editing, etc.


Here is a list of new features:

  • Live HTML/CSS/JS editing preview for Google Chrome — no more window-switching needed.
  • Google Closure Compiler JSDoc annotations support
  • Initial Jade templates support
  • Better JavaScript code completion (faster and smarter)
  • Lots of improvements for Sass/SCSS: better code completion, navigation, code formatting and support for advanced constructs
  • JSTestDriver tests debugging
  • Project-level JS libraries


Full list available here:



It's only £23+VAT for a yearly individual license. Well worth the investment when you think about al lthe time you can save.

Re: WebStorm 5.0, a very powerful HTML5 IDE

I've heard the same good things about WebStorm, but never used it myself.  For me, I like the better JavasScript code completion feature.  That saves time/$.  


I use sublime2 with the JsFormat package and it helps.
