JavaScript Editor Improvements in Visual Studio 2015

via JavaScript Editor Improvements in Visual Studio 2015 – The Visual Studio Blog – Site Home – MSDN Blogs.

In this post, I’ll highlight the new features of the JavaScript editor for each of these areas. You can take advantage of these features in all JavaScript projects supported in Visual Studio

JavaScript is an important technology for development on many different platforms, including web, mobile app, and server programming. In Visual Studio 2013 we already support IntelliSense, Go to Definition, colorization, and formatting of JavaScript source, along with several other features. We’ve carried these forward into Visual Studio 2015 and we’ve improved the experience for JavaScript developers by focusing on three key areas:

  1. Improving the development experience when using popular JavaScript libraries
  2. Adding support for new JavaScript ECMAScript 2015 (also known as ES2015 and formerly ES6) language and web browser APIs
  3. Increasing your productivity in complex JavaScript code bases

Each of these areas was chosen based on feedback we heard on UserVoice, through social media, via the send-a-smile/frown feature in Visual Studio, and from many direct discussions we’ve had with developers like you.
