I've been looking for something like this for a while. Amazing plug-in. Thanks to developer! Editing large JavaScript files without this plug-in is virtually impossible.

PS. It really beats me why neither native Visual Studio nor other JS editors like Dreamweaver provide any means to navigate among JS functions and global variables. This plug-in makes it a breeze!

Fantastic plugin!!!! Highly recommend it if you're trying to clean up your scripts. I use this and a "New Solution Explorer" from my scripts folder and I can find my way around much easier.

Great addin, saves a lot of headache when searching for typos. The tree function is also very useful. The author deserves a donation! How can I do it? Thanks Oleksandr!

Awesome. Why Microsoft the 'let's all program in javascript' company is not providing this OOB is beyond me.

Very handy.

Awesome tool! I have been doing a lot of JavaScript development and this tool provides the functions needed to quickly navigate large files.

I've just installed this. I'm hoping not to experience the crashes people have been talking about because even in 5 minutes of use, I can see this is going to save me a TON of time. For complex JS applications, this would seem to be invaluable. Being able to see the code structure is amazing. Great work on this!

Not sure what 3.7.2 did but you killed VS 2012 on my machine. Can't open any windows related to projects or any new projects. Had to go in safe mode to disable.

3.7.3--back in business

by lmttag | November 05 2013

I'm in the same boat as AllenAdams. After upgrading to the latest version in VS2012, lots of things do not work now in VS2012. For example, the Start Page is non-existent, if you try to go to Extensions and Updates..., it completely crashes VS2012, etc. WTH?!

Sorry about that, I can confirm the issue happened with 3.7.2

If you experience this issue then you have to uninstall that version manually.
Please find folder with corresponding assemblies in location c:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\ and delete whole folder with plugin. After that restart studio - it should help.

Very useful tool

It's confused by Razor @-directives inline with Javascript code in ASP.NET MVC views, and will report them as syntax errors. An otherwise excellent extension.

This is really a great extension to Visual Studio! For a few months now, there has been this great feature where an error message popup is shown whenever a parser error has been found, giving you instant feedback on your work even without keeping the file outline window open all the time!

Olek, the main dev, is also very active and forthcoming, so this extension is live and well and in active development! Check out the Google Groups thread for feature requests: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/js-addin.

Really, a great example of a 5-star extension!

  • Parser Errors but there is nothing wrong that I can see
    2 Posts | Last post 1:39 AM
    • In Visual Studio 2013 I created a C# Web Application Project. I'm getting 3 Javascript Parser errors but they are not even Javascript code on those lines.
      
      Says syntax error on the below two lines.
      <!DOCTYPE html>
      
      <li><a runat="server" href="~/ShoppingCart" id="cartCount">&nbsp;</a></li>
      
      Semicolon Expected error on the line below.
      <p>&copy; <%: DateTime.Now.Year %> - Wingtip Toys</p>
      
      Any Help would be most appreciated.

    • Forgot to mention it is in the Site.Master page.
  • ES6 Support
    1 Posts | Last post August 25, 2014
    • Any plans on adding support for ES6 keywords and features?
  • "Syntax error" on "debugger;"
    3 Posts | Last post August 22, 2014
    • I am a heavy user of "debugger;". This is the conventional codified breakpoint methodology. I don't appreciate being told this is a syntax error.
    • I second that motion!
    • Hey guys,
      I had the same "issue" but find the way to disable it.
      Go settings > There is a checkbox [X] Do not treat "debugger" keyword as error.
      
  • Syntax Error on doctype
    2 Posts | Last post June 30, 2014
    • Whenever I open a .ASPX Masterpage for some reason the JavaScript parser gives me a syntax error with the "<!doctype html>" tag.  I'm running VS 2012 update 4, and of course it's HTML 5.
    • Go into extension options and add the missing "master" extension to the partial ignore list:

      The default value for this list is kinda broken, with two entries for "aspx" and none for "master".

  • Tons of junk entries parsed
    1 Posts | Last post September 30, 2013
    • I've used in the past this extension, and was happy.
      I just installed it again, but the latest version generates high noise.
      
      It parses all jquery $( ... ) call, 
      it parses all jquery method, example: css>?, prop>?
      
      How can we turn this off?
  • Does VS2012 Express for Web not allow this extension?
    1 Posts | Last post September 11, 2013
    • I like this extension very much and use it with VS 2010 Professional. I wanted to try in in Visual Studio 2012 Express for Web edition. Does Microsoft not allow it to be used with the Express edition? The JavaScript Parser extension is not listed among the available extensions, and I cannot find it when using the Express edition's Search Gallery feature either.
  • Great plugin but...
    1 Posts | Last post May 29, 2013
    • I have been using this plugin for a while and find it quite useful however I am doing more and more development in ExtJS (Sencha) and the parser does not like the following object definition:  
        #{objectname}.method(#{secondObjectName}.property)
      
      It gives me an invalid character error on the "#" and a "Expected ':'" on the "}".  While I can appreciate you not wanting to support all JavaScript frameworks it would be nice to disable or ignore this error at the least.
  • Suggestion
    2 Posts | Last post May 13, 2013
    • When you use a function, VS shows the comment above the function definition. It would be nice if the Parser does the same. 
    • Hi TimidWriter,
      
      Yes, It is a good idea to improve this tooltip. I am also have idea to support XML tags
      <summary> and show them with nice formatting.
      Thanks.
  • Support for Web Essentials and CoffeeScript
    2 Posts | Last post May 13, 2013
    • Any chance you can add support for being able to explore the preview window that contains the script generated from coffee script when using the web essentials extension? should be able to get access to that tabbed window since it is just another window docked besides the coffee script window. That would be such a great add in feature.
    • Hi d1820,
      
      No, right now I am not planning to support coffescript or typescript.
