WebStorm is an IDE for JavaScript from JetBrains. It is very similar to PhpStorm, but doesn't support PHP, and can be used for web and mobile app development. The IDE provides an editor for HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It also supports works major frameworks but varies depending on the platform. On Web, it supports Angular, React, and Vue.js. On Mobile, it supports Ionic, Cordova, and React Native. On the desktop, it supports electron, while on the server, Node.js and Meteor.

There are a couple features in WebStorm to make web development easily manageable. On the navigation bar, there is a link where you can create a new project from a set of existing files by rooting the main directory. You can refactor a directory, file and image by renaming moving, copying, or deleting it. If you rename a file or image, you will get notified of the code in your files that is using it and will give you an option to rename the code with the file or image you've renamed.

Webstorm supports Version Control and Git by simplifying merging with other branches. The IDE has a push and pull button that represents Git's commands on the navigation bar. If there is a conflict with merging other branches, conflicted files will be displayed and specifically in the line of code that's happening, something that Git Shells lacks, making it easy for the developer to resolve the conflict. Remote server configuration is also featured through FTP, SFTP, or FTPS which allows for accessing the server via these protocols. This makes uploading files from the local environment to the live server at ease.

How we use it

WebStorm is our main IDE for mobile app development with technologies Node.js, Neo4j, and React, helping us manage our directories of the projects thanks to its user-friendly interface. We can upload our files live thanks to the IDE's option to deploy them by implementing the FTP code in the Settings. We organize our project and work as a team using Git implemented by WebStorm and push the code onto a branch for other users to pull from. Any conflicts that get brought up in the process are easy to solve when the files display the line of code that's happening from.
