Webstorm Plugins for React Developers

Programming React apps on Webstorm can be quite enjoyable.

Webstorm, out of the box has over 50 plugins pre-installed.

So hunting for new plugins wasn't entirely necessary given I still wrestle with Prettier from time to time.

I created this video discussing 6 plugins for Webstorm.

The thumbnail photo is a splice of 2 different themes from the Material UI Theme plugin: Palenite and Monokai.

Material UI Theme is great so far offering some interesting UI updates like icons and overall a full system UI redesign including loading menus.

I did not know there was a Styled-components plugin, offering syntax highlighting for CSS inside templates!

Rainbow brackets I installed recently but I'm unsure if it will stay around. What this plugin does is color the matching parenthesis, brackets or <> differently, so if you have a bunch of nested HTML elements or arrow functions you should be able to read them easier.

Next I'm interested in checking out VSCode's plugins.

What are your favorite IDE Plugins?

It would be great to get a list of the plugins instead of having to watch a 14+ minute video.

Wonder why an entirely Webstorm post is tagged with #vscode...

Hey Samuele, terribly sorry to provide you with irrelevant content like this. I didn't see webstorm as an auto-complete tag so I assumed it didn't exist and figured VSCode users wouldn't mind contributing to my post. I've learned my lesson, and changed the tag to webstorm. Thanks so much for your insight!
