Debian – Install Jetbrains pycharm and webstorm the best way

Download them from JetBrains website

Copy them under /opt, I have created a subfolder called jetbrains.

Use update-alternatives to do the magic

# update-alternatives --install /usr/local/bin/webstorm webstorm /opt/jetbrains/WebStorm-143.1559.5/bin/ 1
# update-alternatives --install /usr/local/bin/pycharm pycharm /opt/jetbrains/pycharm-5.0.3/bin/ 1

This is obviously valid for IntelliJ IDEA, PhpStorm, CLion, etc.
