We are pleased to announce the release of Node.js Tools 1.0 RC for Visual Studio.
Node.js Tools for Visual Studio (NTVS) is a free, open-source plug-in that turns Visual Studio into a Node.js Integrated Development Environment (IDE). It supports a broad range of features including editing, IntelliSense, cross platform and remote debugging, edit and continue, npm integration, profiling, TypeScript, and an integrated REPL window. NTVS also includes a list of project templates that make it easy to quickly create and deploy websites to Microsoft Azure Websites or Cloud Services.
NTVS 1.0 RC is available for:
Changes since Beta 3
Improved npm integration
The npm UI now supports per-project .npmrc files, so you can switch seamlessly between registry configurations and collaborate more easily with your team. We have also added an ‘Open Folder in Explorer’ context menu command to npm package nodes in solution explorer so that you can browse more quickly to the associated directory in node_modules.
Additionally, many npm UI performance and stability issues have been fixed in RC, so be sure to give it a try if you were having trouble in earlier releases.
Improved code formatting and editing
We have made several improvements to code formatting and editing experiences (including comments, function indentation, control flow, and auto-complete.)
Numerous bug fixes
Numerous issues have been fixed all across the product
. We expect the RC release to provide both a much better user experience and improved stability. We would like to thank all of the people who took their time to report issues, send feedback for this release. We very much appreciate your help!
