Intellij IDEA has "exactly" the same functionality as webstorm as far as web is concerned?


I would like to know what the differences as far as the web is concerned between intellij idea and webstorm.

I currently own and use intellij idea for android development and java.

I am interested now to start using nodejs and a little bit of angularjs. Now webstorm is being marketed for just this task...

But does Intellij IDEA include "ALL" funcionality from webstorm ?

Project files are compatible?

I am trying to find out if I need to buy webstorm, and also if I can follow the many tutorials for webstorm if I was using Intellij IDEA?

Anybody using both IDEs? Is so, why?

Thanks in advance

All of the functionality of our lightweight IDEs can be found within IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate (you need to install the corresponding plug-ins from the repository).

It includes support for all technologies developed for our more specific products such as Web/PhpStorm, RubyMine and PyCharm.
