Angular.js IntelliSense in Visual Studio

Today Visual Studio already offers you Angular.js IntelliSense. However it’s functionality is limited to a standard list of keywords and doesn’t recognize your own directives, controllers, etc… This is because the JavaScript editor doesn’t understand the way that Angular dynamically loads object references when your app is launched. John Bledsoe, a member of the Visual Studio community, created a great extension that helps the Visual Studio editor with this. By simulating the execution of your Angular application as you write your code, it provides a significantly better IntelliSense experience.

How to use it…

To get started, you need to install the AngularJS extension for Visual Studio. To do this, download the angular.intellisense.js file and place it in the Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\JavaScript\References folder.

More information about this extension can be found here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudio/archive/2015/02/05/using-angularjs-in-visual-studio-2013.aspx
