Webstorm community edition Follow
Is there a community edition for webstorm ?
Update from JetBrains as of October 2021: Unfortunately, a community edition doesn’t seem possible right now, mainly because WebStorm’s features are included in our other paid IDEs. If we made such a radical change, we’d have to restructure a lot of other things. That’s a significant commitment we aren’t ready to make at the moment.
We try to support the community in other ways, though. We provide full or partial discounts for those who work on OSS projects, as well as for students, startups, training courses, and user groups. You can find more information about our special offers here. You can also try our EAP builds, which are free to use and are available three times a year.

I get really tired of people who say things like it's only £50. Maybe that's not much money if you live in a rich country like the UK. That's a lot of money to many people, especially those who don't live in wealthy countries. Furthermore this tool is not the only thing people have to pay for. All these costs quickly add up.
Those people can VScode, I want a product that works
Just use EAP builds people, it's free, I've used it and it's stable enough for work.
From what I recall EAP builds expire and there are periods where they aren't available at all. Has that changed? If not you're going to find there are times when you can't use Webstorm, so wouldn't recommend relying on it.
I want a product that works is not remotely relevant. Unless the suggestion is that the tools with a community edition don't work.
Yes they expire after 30 days, but next version usually come in less than two weeks so it's safe.
In the past EAP versions stopped for a while after a new version of the product was released. Long enough that the last EAP release expired before a new one became available.
