@jbbr Okay, I sent the PKGBUILD over to the e-mail address that was in the PKGBUILD file. Let me know if I need to send it somewhere else to make it easier for you.

@deanproxy that would be great, I'm currently short on time but I'd gladly accept a patch for this PKGBUILD to archive this behavior.

There are multiple API ressources like "releases" and "products" with the possibility to filter by "eap", "rc" and "release".

Not sure if this is documented somewhere and likely not intended for public use so the api could change or be closed for external access...

@jbbr that would be great. I can conjure up something for PKGBUILD to use the jetbrains api if you're short on time?

@deanproxy I'm not sure if and how it's possible to submit Merge Requests using AUR. It would be really great to have an easy way of doing so. Maybe keeping the repo in sync with some external Gitlab/Github repo would do the trick... Anyway: I will now update the package

Update: The PKGBUILD is now up-to-date. Some thoughts about a possible future: It might be preferable to have the PKGBUILD always fetch the latest version, similar to the -git packages.

The eap download page of jetbrains is already API-based and it should be possible to query to always get the latest and greatest.

This is a bit out of date. Any way I can submit a merge request with an updated PKGBUILD?

@R3GT1C: EAP stands for "Early Access Program". So they are pre-releases.

What is eap version?

Also note that you can get a "subscription" and then cancel it immediately. This will give you a lifetime license for the current version, without paying monthly / yearly (but without access to future updates of course).

Thanks for the info!

I think the EAP builds which do not require a license have an expiry date and don't work when it exceeds. Also you can use the trial versions for more then 30 days - you only have to restart the IDE 1x per hour.

I think the pricing model is quite fair - although I usually don't like subscriptions for applications. If you are a student, use it for an open source project and more, you can get it for free anyway.

Sadly old urls do not work. I would be happy if anyone shared package that doesn't require a license.

jbbr commented on 2016-04-23 09:50

@trulex: You can get old versions of the package from the aur git repository. See for changelog. You can checkout a specific commit and use "makepkg" to build the package.

As the PKGBUILD relies on the official jetbrains download url, it might be the case that some older versions are not available anymore.

trulex commented on 2016-04-23 09:23

Is it possible to get older version that didn't require a license?

jbbr commented on 2016-01-21 12:20

Note: Latest EAP (144.3143.5) uses a built-in custom JDK. Old "no-sdk" build seems to be gone. That's why java-environment is not a dependency anymore.

This might cause issues for users of customized JDKs (infinality fonts, other architectures like ARM...)!

EDIT: Due to request I will continue updating this package also on non-eap releases.

Webstorm 11 has been released. I will continue maintaining this package once Webstorm 12 (or 11.1) EAP begins. Just flag this package to notify me.

AUR package for Webstorm 11:
