I was using Notepad++ only for this purpose earlier.
Killed the performance of VS 2013 for me. Didn't realize how bad it was until I ran into web.config issues where there was a localdb connection string in machine config that kept creating an aspnetdb.mdf in my solutions under App_Data. Removed it from machine config and this extension started crashing on VS startup. Removed this extension and the localdb connection string and now my VS runs about 100x faster and starts up much quicker.
Two small requests from initial 5 minutes of use:
1. Can you automatically show/hide the parser panel depending on if you are able to parse the file?
1a. Basically, auto-hide when showing server code like C# and then auto-show when showing client code.
2. Can it be made to refresh automatically? Perhaps even a polling solution to simply reparse every 20 seconds. I can understand you don't want to parse every key-press.
Thanks for your feedback, it is very pleasant to read that my extension might be useful. Unfortunately currently I do not have spare time to implement those features, especially considering the fact that auto show\hide panel was implemented long time ago, but facing numerous bugs and after a lot of struggling to fix all that behavior in all versions of VS I had to give up and remove that functionality completely.
About refresh - it is subscribed to "save file" event. So if you want to refresh the view you just need to press Ctrl+S.
Currently I am in progress of moving parsing engine from Microsoft JScript compiler (which is kinda old) to new JInt parser (which contains C# port of Esprima parser). This is going to provide a lot of improvements, bugfixes and of course ES6 support.
It would be really useful to be able to do this in order to document code structure at a function level, monitor changes over time, etc.
I can do a screengrab, but it's not as useful.
I was working on performance tuning recently.
This extension cause a crash problem when click items on "Calling Functions" list in Function Details view for .VSP file, recorded by VS performance profiler.
Hi, I installed this hoping it would help with syntax issues in an MVC view. I cannot find this in Visual Studio anywhere nor doe it seem to work with an MVC view.
Can anyone enlighten on if this is possible?
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".
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,,, ;-)
