I am using PHP Storm 6 on a Mac and was wondering if there is any way to use a Windows 7 based laptop next to it to preview my work via LiveEdit.
I have a Virtual Host configured on the Mac (as follows) and connect to it via http://somehost.dev -
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI
AddType text/shtml .shtml
AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
Allow from all
I have the Chrome JetBrains IDE extension installed on the Mac and Live Edit works fine. I noticed that there is the option to set an IP address and port for the extension to use, which I would think means that it would be possible to listen for LiveEdit from another machine. The IP address of the Mac is 192.168.2 - using this IP address I am able to view
on the Windows machine and set the Windows machine's JetBrains IDE IP to 192.168.1.2. However, LiveEdit does not do anything on this machine.
Is it possible to set up such a configuration?
Also, when I upgraded to PHPStorm 6, LiveEdit disappeared from the View menu. I downloaded it from the Plugin repository and it's working again. Is the improved LiveEdit that is mentioned for PHPStorm 6 the same one in the repository?
