Try reinstalling from scratch:

  1. Delete WebStorm from /Applications/
  2. Remove all the configs and related settings by running the following commands:

    rm -rf "$HOME/Library/Preferences/WebStorm8"
    rm -rf "$HOME/Library/Caches/WebStorm8"
    rm -rf "$HOME/Library/Application Support/WebStorm8"
    rm -rf "$HOME/Library/Logs/WebStorm8"

Hi, yes It helped. For moment. I have delete the folders, install WebStorm 8 EAP, import previous setup from WebStorm 7, launch, open few previous projects - everything works fine. Install Node.js source code visa settings dialog. – Pavel Binar Mar 7 '14 at 14:23
And since than I am unable to launch the program again. – Pavel Binar Mar 7 '14 at 14:25
not sure I've got what you mean... Is everything working fine now? what's wrong with Node.js sources (if anything is wrong)? – lena Mar 7 '14 at 14:27
I am unable to start program again - it do not respond at all. And I was describing what I did from the point of deleting the folders to to point unable to launch the app. – Pavel Binar Mar 7 '14 at 14:29
do you mean that it failes to start after configuring Node sources? it's strange. I'd suggest creating a support ticket – lena Mar 7 '14 at 14:29
