JavaScript AudioContext - 'Interface can not be instantiated'

I'm having problems making PhpStorm recognise the web audio api functions.

I found and downloaded 'webaudioapi-DefinitlyTyped' in 'JavaScript Libraries', but the following line:

var context = new AudioContext();

leads to the error 'Interface can not be instantiated'.

Is there a setting i am missing?


the problem is that AudioContext is an interface in waa.d.ts. And interfaces can't be instantiated using new() operator.

I'd suggest using lib.es6.d.ts instead - it includes correct stubs for WebAudio API. Just add \plugins\JavaScriptLanguage\typescriptCompiler\external\lib.es6.d.ts as a javascript library to your project
