  3. Anyone familiar with editing javascript / jquery in Visual Studio? Question
3 years ago#1
I am wanting to use Visual Studio as my uhh... platform/software/app/whatever for writing javascript. I chose it because i went to a conference earlier on in the month and the instructor was using some form of Visual Studio (that was FREE, mind you) to write his stuff. I liked it alot. I went home and immediately was overwhelmed trying to find the "right" version to do this. I downloaded what I thought was the correct version but apparently it must not be because there is no option to create a new javascript file/script.

Bottom line: does anybody here know where I can find the correct Visual Studio 13 version (and free, preferably) to use as my WYSIWYG javascripting software??

I very much appreciate the help - I'm at my wits end googling it. Apparently I'm not as good at googling as I thought I was.

I should note, I am open to other applications out there to use for writing javascript. I would prefer Visual Studio solely because I saw it somewhere I liked it but I will be the first to admit I haven't seen even half of what is out there. I am pretty novice and just getting into javascript so I'm sure there are plenty of applications out there I should be considering.

I think the only version that's free is the express version. Unless you're a college student, then go here: https://www.dreamspark.com/

I don't think any of the differences between Ultimate, Professional, and Premium have anything to do with what type of codes it supports.

Why would you use a IDE to write Javascript? Just use something like Notepad++ or Sublime.

Well, as stated above, I'm extremely new to javascript and the more visual the editor - the better. If someday down the road I become some amazing code-junky, then sure I will be all for Notepad++.... but while I am learning, I'd much prefer something a bit more newby-friendly.

Again, I'm open to other applications too! I just want something along the lines of the old MS Frontpage/ Adobe Dreamweaver setup where you code in one window or tab and flip to the other to quickly check'er out.

Like with all languages it is important that you have a firm foundation. IDE's don't always provide that. Auto correcting/generating code isn't always good, you should do a lot of reading and studying about Javascript because it has a lot of weird quips that regular Programming Languages do not have.

i'm still unused to using IDEs to do makefiles for my c++/java files. i'll probably move on to them eventually but for now i still do things primarily in linux or a linux vm

So, you would recommend using something along the lines of Notepad++ or Sublime instead? If that's the case, I will go that route. I already use N++ for HTML nonsense, so I'll just go with that.
