Installing Visual Studio Code
Visual Studio Code is a cross platform free tool from Microsoft. Lets see that how to install Visual Studio Code. Here is a link here for Visual Studio Code,
Run the downloaded VSCodeSetup-stable.exe file and follow the wizard with default values. Please make sure that “Add to the PATH” checkbox has checked in the Select Additional Tasks screen.
After successful installation, Visual Studio Code Editor will be opened.
You can also open the Visual Studio Code from command line.
I have created my project folder “AngularTS”. While typing “code .”, visual studio code will be opened with current directory.You can see here, current folder “AngularTS” in the left navigation.
On right click the mouse on the left navigation area, context menu will be opened. It help us to create a new folder or file, open the current explorer or command prompt.
I have created sample.js and sample1.js in the folder and created a function getAddress in sample.js. When we try to access the getAddress function, we will get the IntelliSense by out of box.
Suppose if you try to access the getAddress method in sample2.js file, we won’t get IntelliSense for that.
By explicitly reference the sample.js to sample2.js, we can get the intellisense. Lets see how to do that.
In the next post, we will see that how to install and configure TypeScript IntelliSense.
