Can I move from Webstorm to Rider?

Actually I'm a Webstorm user for TypeScript and Javascript projects and ReSharper for C# .

In the latest Rider video appears that Rider can be used for that kind of projects too (Typescript and JS).

Can I move to Rider? Did will Rider support all JS projects (like Angular and React) as WebStorm?

When is recommended to move from WebStorm to Rider and when stay with both IDEs?

Thanks,

What's the current situation? Does Rider support all the features that WebStorm supports + .NET or something missing?

I'd also like to know the current situation of Webstorm vs Rider. I'd like to use Rider for C# and JS development.

Hi there,

Sorry for the delayed reply. Currently, Rider has all the WebStorm features except for project templates. You can also work with your JS/TS project if it is not included in your .NET solution. Just attach the folder with your JS/TS project to your solution with "Attach Existing Folder" action. Please find out more about attaching a folder in Rider docs.

Hope it helps.

Has this changed, or are project templates still the only reason to get WebStorm in addition to Rider? And why does Rider have those features in the first place?

I have my personal dotUltimate license. I am considering to change to an 'all products' license in order to benefit from the other editors as well.

But if Rider can do everything... why should I ?

The current situation is just the same as back in 2018. Project templates for non-.NET projects are still missing. Apart from the above example, Rider has all WebStorm features. Basically, Rider includes WebStorm.
