WebStorm is lightweight yet powerful Integrated Development Environment (IDE) perfectly equipped for complex client-side development and server-side development, it is cross-platform and works on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
In order to run WebStorm smoothly, the following hardware requirements are required:
For previous versions of WebStorm before 2016 it's required to have Java installed on the machine in order to run WebStorm, starting from WebStorm 2016 and above, JRE 1.8 is bundled with distributions for all platforms. You don't need any Java to be installed on your machine in order to run WebStorm.
For the Operating System (OS) the following is required:
WebStorm-*.exefile that starts the Installation Wizard. ( the * means the current version downloaded )
WebStorm-*.dmgOS X Disk Image file from the Download page. ( the * means the current version downloaded )
WebStorm-*.dmgOS X Disk Image file to mount it.
WebStorm-*.tar.gz file from the Download page. ( the * means the current version downloaded )
Unpack the WebStorm-*.tar.gz file to an empty directory using the following command:
tar xfz WebStorm-*.tar.gz
Because running WebStorm from wherever you downloaded the file to may be inconvenient, it is recommended that you move the extracted or unpacked archive folder to the desired location using the
mv command in one of the following formats:
mv <path to extracted archive folder> <new archive folder>
Example ------- - mv /downloads/WebStorm-* my/desired/location - mv <path to WebStorm-*.tar.gz> <new archive folder>
Switch to the bin directory in the new location:
cd <new archive folder>/WebStorm-*/bin
Example ------- - cd <new archive folder>/WebStorm-*/bin
webstorm.shfrom the bin subdirectory.
