Because this isn't that helpful:
Specially when more "simple editors" get you the real deal:

Quick documentation popup opened on
If you like to see full API docs, hit
Shift+F1, or press blue 'up' arrow button in documentation popup toolbar (note that this function is only available for libraries that have 'documentation URL' configured)
There has to be another solution than manually editing EcmaScript's JSDocs.
Create a feature request for adding more docs in youtrack then
but ofc I can't add that because only definitelytyped works
Could any developer spare a few seconds to explain what the hell is going on with this, please?
This issue is already tracked in youtrack: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WEB-12145
Vote for it!
While we wait for years, for you to implement something very very easy and very useful, I'd like for someone from JetBrains to explain to us the logic behind this nonsense. You could have a properly documented *.js file for autocompletion and documentation, yet you are using an empty one, with only arguments if lucky.
Why? The information is already public; it's not like you have to type it manually. All other IDEs/editors have it.
JetBrains products are good, but this one thing I don't understand.
I reluctantly agree with the OP here (though the aggressive tone is freaky: we're talking the relative trivia of dev tools here, not climate collapse).
I've mostly used IntelliJ platform IDEs with relatively strongly-typed languages (Objective-C, Swift, Java, Kotlin). IntelliJ is glorious here, particularly the refactoring -- it really comes close to feeling like interacting with a syntax tree rather than text.
This is kind of disappointing, I went from VSCode to RubyMine mainly due to lack of Ruby documentation support for methods by Code or its plugins. But now I get pretty much the same thing here, no JS documentation on RubyMine while Code a "simple text editor" includes it by default.
Seeing that this issue has been reported on since 2014, I don't have much hope on it getting fixed anytime soon, hopefully I'm proven wrong.
I've been pushing this issue everywhere. Nobody from JetBrains has contacted back but I gave up waiting. It' been a year.
I swear, I'm not a VS CODE fanboy by any stretch, but every month they clear hundreds of issues and push thousands of commits.
And most importantly, they get back at you in a heart beat. And the whole thing is free! I paid for my JetBrains products good money and got silence in return.
I have to agree with Neithan here. This is a paid software and you guys should be able to listen to its users and give us far better responses than "Create an issue and vote"
This issue is fixed in EAP 2017.3. Works for me.
I have been a huge fan and heavy user of Jetbrains over the years. It is mind-blowing to me that this fundamental issue took 3 years to address.
