Gulp within a vagrant in WebStorm

Hello, forgive me as I'm still coming up to speed with this IDE. I'm familiar with Eclipse and debugging over the JPDA debug port, and I'm trying to see if I can do the same with WebStorm, vagrant, gulp.

Question would be, is that something I can do? As in, can I get the WebStorm gulp integration inside a vagrant?

I've tried reading the docs about vagrant, and I found how to the basic up/reload/halt, but not enough for what I'm trying to do.

Help is much appreciated.

Do you miss a possibility to run remote Gulp (the one installed in your Vagrant box)? No, it's not possible, please vote for https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WEB-1974 and linked tickets

Cool I'm checking it out.

I wonder if vagrant has the chops to be able to just run WebStorm itself (download a *nix distro)....?

Hmmm.. Why not? But you need to make sure to install a GUI environment ther first - see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18878117/using-vagrant-to-run-virtual-machines-with-desktop-environment, for example

I may try that, although I guess the "why not" would be if it was too difficult to get the vagrant working, or if my machine didn't have enough resources to allocate enough for the vagrant, given that IDEs are pretty heavy.
