Visual Studio vs WebStorm: What are the differences?

What is Visual Studio? State-of-the-art tools and services that you can use to create great apps for devices, the cloud, and everything in between. Visual Studio is a suite of component-based software development tools and other technologies for building powerful, high-performance applications.

What is WebStorm? The smartest JavaScript IDE. WebStorm is a lightweight and intelligent IDE for front-end development and server-side JavaScript.

Visual Studio and WebStorm can be primarily classified as "Integrated Development Environment" tools.

"Intellisense, ui", "Complete ide and debugger" and "Plug-ins" are the key factors why developers consider Visual Studio; whereas "Intelligent ide ", "Smart development environment" and "Easy js debugging" are the primary reasons why WebStorm is favored.

Intuit, Starbucks, and Yahoo! are some of the popular companies that use Visual Studio, whereas WebStorm is used by Lyft, HelloReceipts, and Edify. Visual Studio has a broader approval, being mentioned in 676 company stacks & 1009 developers stacks; compared to WebStorm, which is listed in 469 company stacks and 449 developer stacks.

We use Prettier because when we rebooted our front-end stack, I decided that it would be an efficient use of our time to not worry about code formatting issues and personal preferences during peer review. Prettier eliminates this concern by auto-formatting our code to a deterministic output. We use it along with ESLint and have 1st-class support in our WebStorm and Visual Studio Code editors.

I use Visual Studio because it provides me best default configuration for development. Less choice helps me concentrate on the product. In a sense it is iPhone of software development for me. When my laptop broke, I just download latest version of VS and start coding without any configuration. For sure it has best editor in terms of perceived responsiveness. Could not say the same for IntelliJ IDEA unfortunately.

#Help

When I switched to Visual Studio Code 12 months ago from PhpStorm I was in love, it was great. However after using VS Code for a year, I see myself switching back and forth between WebStorm and VS Code. The VS Code plugins are great however I notice Prettier, auto importing of components and linking to the definitions often break, and I have to restart VS Code multiple times a week and sometimes a day.

We use Ruby here so I do like that Visual Studio Code highlights that for me out of the box, with WebStorm I'd need to probably also install RubyMine and have 2 IDE's going at the same time.

Should I stick with Visual Studio Code, or switch to something else? #help

I work at the same company as you and I use WebStorm for 99% of my tasks. I also have RubyMine installed and use that when I have to tweak some backend code. I tried using RubyMine for JavaScript but was unhappy with how it felt and I believe that WebStorm is faster because it has less plugins and language extensions running. Summary: Buy and use WebStorm for primary development and keep VS Code around for when you have to touch Ruby.

How developers use Visual Studio and WebStorm
Avatar of Cloudcraft
Cloudcraft uses WebStormWebStorm

WebStorm is the best IDE hands-down for JavaScript developers. Yes, there's more lightweight editors (and nothing beats vim when debugging remotely), but the sheer productivity of WebStorm is unparalleled. React/JSX support? Check. ES2015 support? You bet. Node.js profiling? Yes! Look, if you can't rename a class or variable reliably across a JavaScript project, follow references, debug (without console logs) your editor sucks. Don't use a editor that sucks, use WebStorm!

We are an ASP.NET shop, so it is fitting that we use Visual Studio. The biggest advantage that VS gives us is the first-class debugger, and the ReSharper refactoring tools. We do use Sublime, Brackets, Vim, Emacs, and other editors in conjunction with VS since VS does can take a long time to load.

An IDE which I use for at least ten years now. Roslyn is getting better and better, but VS Code seems better now. A bit obsolete concept, but the extra tools (like git integration, azure browsing, preset projects and solutions) makes it still very useful.

Best open source, good replacement for Visual Studio. I'm using it as my development environment in C# and Dynamics 365 Business Central (extension development).
