My team are currently migrating from VS2012 to VS2010. We currently use a JSLint plugin and would like to continue using one after migration. Is there a planned release date for this completed extension? Using an alpha/beta version is not an option for us when developing production code.
I presume you use our jslint plugin for 2010? It is the same plugin, just with new references. Unfortunately a couple of the guids have changed.
I'm using this every day and so far only have the problems I mention. I hope to fix those this weekend. Its an open source project mainly developed by me - so I'm calling it beta because there are a couple of known bugs (mainly features strangely missing). Once I don't know of any known bugs, I'll change it to be called stable.
Hope that helps.. couple of weeks max.
I'm trying to get JSLint to ignore the extra long line defining an image, which works OK, but then it doesn't catch any CSS mistakes after the end comment. See example below. If I add the .licenseInput style after the ignore end comment, JSLint plugin doesn't complain. If I move it to before the ignore start comment, it complains about word-break (which is odd since that's a valid CSS3 attribute, which might be another issue).
/*ignore jslint start*/
background:url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAABMAAAATCAYAAAByUDbMAAAAGXRFWHRTb2Z0d2FyZQBBZG9iZSBJbWFnZVJlYWR5ccllPAAAA2..really long line snipped..Fo4AAQYAAA0piq4hbqwAAAAASUVORK5CYII=) top left no-repeat;
/*ignore jslint end*/
For example, can I have a file called "jslint_rules.js" and have the following content...
/*jslint plusplus: true, vars: true */
I would prefer not to have to put these overrides at the top of every file.
We have multiple products that all use some common folders. We're using Visual Studio's ability to include content in a project from outside the project (Content Include) for third party JS libraries and code we write for all projects to use. The code from the third party libraries often don't conform to jsLint or jsHint requirements, so when we run jsHint on our project at build, it reports tons of errors.
We've tried to exclude these folders from jsLint for VS2012 using the provided mechanisms, but whenever the build runs, the files are still checked and errors are reported.
Can anyone tell me the correct way to have these files excluded from these project's build process?
I am using VS 2012 Express version. I am not able to get through the installation. "This extension is not installable on any currently installed products".
I checked "extension.vsixmanifest", file there is no referenct to "express". I tried adding and installing but hard luck. Now I get "This vsix package is invalid because it does not contain the file extension.vsixmainfest at the root".
1. Is there support for VS 2012 express?
2. Is there a work around for VS express?
I added support, but when it came to upload I got the message "You can only upload template VSIX files for the Visual Studio Express SKUs." So I altered the config to remove support again.
Does the express version even support extensions? If you look on codeplex that version still says it supports express, so you could try it.
Extensions do not work in Visual Studio Express. This is a limitation that Microsoft intentionally put into the express editions. You need to purchase an edition of Visual Studio in order to use extensions.
