JetBrains has released WebStorm 2023.1, its IDE customized for JavaScript and TypeScript. The updated version has support for the Astro framework, and TypeScript support for Vue templates.

WebStorm is a web development IDE from JetBrains. It has smart coding assistance for JavaScript and compiled-to-JavaScript languages, Node.js, HTML and CSS, with code completion, on-the-fly error detection, and refactorings.


The new version adds support for Astro, an open-source framework for generating web applications on top of UI frameworks like React, Preact, Vue, or Svelte. Astro support is available via a plugin on the JetBrains Marketplace. The plugin provides basic functionality, including syntax highlighting, code completion with automatic imports, refactorings, navigation, and correct formatting.

This release also adds TypeScript support in Vue templates, and expanded support for component imports on copy-paste for more frameworks: WebStorm now automatically adds all the required imports for Vue, Svelte, Astro, and Angular templates when you copy and paste code from one file to another. Importing of components in Angular now also has the ability to import global and exported symbols into your components on code completion when working in Angular templates.

The new UI is another area to have been improved, based on user feedback. The changes include a redesigned run widget, Show Hidden Tabs, vertical split for tool windows, Compact Mode, and project tabs on macOS. There's also improved code review workflow for GitHub with a reworking of the Pull Request tool window. It now features a dedicated tab for each pull request you open.

Other improvements include configurations options for Tailwind CSS such as custom class name completion, refinements to the user experience, and version control integration. It also introduces new features for Angular, an option to configure HTML code completion, an ability to run Jest tests in a folder, and improved functionality for JavaScript and TypeScript.

WebStorm 2023.1 is available now for download.
