Getting started

To get started with WebStorm, install it and then tell it where to find the Dart SDK and Dartium.

Configuring Dart support

Here’s one way to configure Dart support in WebStorm:

  1. Create a new Dart project:

    1. From the Welcome screen, click Create New Project.
    2. In the next dialog, click Dart.

  2. If you don't see values for the Dart SDK path and (optional) Dartium path, enter them.

    For example, the SDK path might be <dart installation directory>/dart/dart-sdk, and the Dartium path might be <dartium installation directory>/Chromium.

An alternative to Step 1 is to open an existing Dart project, and then open its pubspec.yaml file or any of its Dart files.

Running a web app

To run a web app in Dartium, right-click the main HTML file (for example, web/index.html), and choose Run ‘index.html’.

To run a web app in another browser (or in Dartium), right-click the main HTML file (for example, web/index.html) and choose Open in browser. Then choose the browser you want to run the app. A browser window opens and, after the app is compiled to JavaScript, displays the app.

Reporting issues

Please report issues and feedback via the official JetBrains issue tracker for Dart. Include details of the expected behavior, the actual behavior, and screenshots if appropriate.

Your questions are welcome in the Dart plugin for WebStorm/IntelliJ editors mailing list.
