New to Ionic - Webstorm integration issues

Hey everyone, I am uploading my Ionic project to Webstorm and I am missing every folder (i.e. hooks, node modules, etc.), but its loading .bowercc, .DSstore, etc. Could someone help me figure out how to get my Webstorm project to show the folders?

I recommend you to use

Hey Corin, thanks! A good friend stated that visual studio IDE is not the best choice. Why is Visual Studio better than Webstorm? Anyone else have the same issue that I’m having?

Here’s the screenshot:

I’m not sure how common the codebase is between WebStorm and IntelliJ IDEA (which is what I use), but one thing you could try is closing the project and deleting or renaming an “.idea” folder if one exists at the top level of your project. Then reopen it in the IDE.

Hey Rapropos! Thank you! I see the .idea folder in the user/ folder, but I actually can’t find it to delete that folder.

Unfortunately, I don’t see it here, so I’m not sure how to delete it.

I can’t see any special advantage in Webstorm and VS Code is free…

@benzelkin: You may need to enable some Finder option to show hidden files (typically things that start with a dot aren’t shown by default). Even if you can’t see it though, terminal commands like rm and mv can.

@Corin: Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I’ve been using IDEA Ultimate for years and really respect its deep support for many different languages.

Thank you, both!! I used this, “find . -name “.idea” -exec rm -r {} ;” and it did the trick!
