AngularJS Visual Studio 2012 Intellisense

Currently i’m working on a project to move an existing Silverlight application into AngularJS and there is one thing I’ve been missing while using Visual Studio that I had using Webstorm and that is syntax highlighting and auto-completion of angular directives.

I’ve made additions to the HTML 5 schema template in visual studio to get this working with Intellisense.

You can get the code from

And simply extract to ‘Common7\Packages\schemas\html’ in your Visual Studio install directory. For me that’s “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\Packages\schemas\html”.

Overwrite the existing files and restart visual studio.

You should now have intellisense support for angular directives!
