Is PhpStorm a superset of WebStorm?

Does PhpStorm include everything that WebStorm does plus the Php component


Does WebStorm contain some features not found in PhpStorm?

Just wondering if I need to look at both products or just PhpStorm.

Thank you.

Hi there,

From PhpStorm product page:

Note: PhpStorm includes all the functionality of WebStorm (HTML/CSS Editor, JavaScript Editor) and adds full-fledged support for PHP.

From PhpStorm & WebStorm FAQ page:

Which IDE do I need?

PhpStorm is designed to cover all needs of PHP developer including full JavaScript, CSS and HTML support.
WebStorm is for hardcore JavaScript developers. It  includes features PHP developer normally doesn’t need like Node.JS or  JSUnit. However corresponding plugins can be installed into PhpStorm for  free.
