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!
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.
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.
Some extra info after a few more searches,,,
Visual Studio message on install attempt:
This extension is not installable on any currently installed products.
Searched everywhere for a solution...
Not solved but found this info that can be relevant for a a next release...
Please hurry,,, ;-)
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?
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:
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.
