Setup IDE

Note: This tutorial assumes you have already setup a droplet on DigitalOcean.

Steps are documented below the video:

  1. Open WebStorm
    1. Create New Project, or
    2. Open an existing one.
  2. Goto Tools > Deployment > Configuration

    This will open the configuration window where you will be adding a server .

  3. Click on "+" Symbol i.e. Add Deployment Server

  4. Now In Connection tab, specify the name you want to give to this deployment server. For eg. Webstorm Remote Access

  5. Now Select Type i.e. FTP, SFTP, FTPS or Local . Here we are describing the interaction type with the remote host.

    1. FTP : File Transfer Protocol

    2. SFTP: SSH File Transfer Protocol

    3. FTPS: FTP-SSL (extension to FTP)

    4. Local

  6. For This demo, We will be selecting SFTP.

  7. Now Specify other details as :

    1. Host : mention the IPv4 address of your droplet.
    2. port : 22
    3. rootpath: / (Specifies the root path of your droplet. Leave it alone if you are not an advanced user)
    4. username: username for logging into your droplet. For digitalocean droplets, it will usually be root
    5. Auth type: Change it from Password to Key pair
      1. Private key file: You can use the ... symbol to enter the file browser and 9 times out of 10, the file you want to select is located here: /Users/<your_username>/.ssh/id_rsa on a mac.
      2. Key passphrase: Provide the password you used to encrypt your id_rsa file.
        1. enable the Save passphrase checkbox
  8. Additionally click on "Test SFTP Connection" to verify if your connection is authorized or not.
  9. Once your connection is successful, navigate to Mappings tab .
    1. Local Path : path of your application in your system
    2. Deployment Path : path of your application on the remote host. For eg. /root/dev/BluBox where BluBox is the application directory.
  10. For advanced users:
    • You can chose to ignore few directories which we want i.e. node modules, bower_components etc. by adding them to excluded paths.
  11. Now Click on OK.
  12. Your Webstorm Deployment Server Configuration is complete.
    1. If you used an existing project:
      1. Click on Tools > Deployment and select Sync with Deployed to Webstorm Remote Access.
        1. It will take some time to sync local project with the remote one.
  13. Goto Tools > Deployment menu and select Automatic Upload
  14. Now whenever you save changes, the code is uploaded on the remote host
    • Advanced users: Additionally if your remote box is configured appropriately, then your application is re-deployed with the updated code. But that's a separate topic.
