Angular Language Service for Visual Studio Update

Gabrielle Crevecoeur

Last August, the JavaScript/TypeScript tools team released the Angular Language Service for Visual Studio customers. We wanted to appeal to the many ASP.NET/ASP.NET Core users that are building their front-end projects with Angular. Though there was a lot of praise around this extension, the experience was not so great for all users. We want you to know we heard you and we have made some changes.   

Updates and Bug Fixes 

We constantly tracked issues in our Github repository and monitored feedback from the Visual Studio Extension site to see what bugs needed to be prioritized and what features needed to be added. In this update we have tackled two major issues:  

  1. A System Aggregate Exception caused by the extension
  2. HTML Completions not working properly 

We also updated the extension to support the latest version of the language service (v11.2.8) and the latest version of TypeScript (v4.2.3) 

An upcoming fix we are currently working on is being sure completions in project buffers are handled properly with the extension. You can read more here.
