Built-in/internal web server


as a javascript developer, I don't generally run a web server locally and browsing javascript files from my local machine (preview) means they are generally more security-restricted and don't behave as expected.
I have seen an internal web server in most other IDEs and was wondering if WebStorm or PHPStorm contain this feature?
If not, are there plans to include one or a plugin I can install?

Kind regards,



Indeed, content served via file:// behaves differently than http:// served one.
We don't have any plans for built-in server yet or any suitable plugin - please file a feature request to http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues/WI
