I've recently switched to Mac, and I'm really finding that performance on PHPStorm is terrible compared to the Windows version.
For PHPStorm 8, it seems to be almost exclusively connected to indexing. When PHPStorm hangs, it will normally be preparing for indexing, then the indexing will take a LONG time. Not only this, but PHPStorm will be very sluggish during this time, and sometimes not finish. Oftem when I restart PHPStorm, it will then reindex AGAIN, so I spend more time waiting for PHPStorm than getting on with coding.
I've seen this behaviour on about 5 different Macs now (we've been installing a bunch at work) and it's pretty frustrating.
I've been reading up about it, and some suggested to use the EAP version of PHPStorm, but this has been an even worse experience. Often it won't start for minutes, then there will be extended periods of unresponsiveness. It's really not a workable solution.
The current install is on a brand new MacBook Pro 13".
What can I do?
