Description Christian Lenz 2016-03-31 07:19:50 UTC
Today I read an article about the new Sals feature in Visual Studio 2016:

MS tried to implement a better intellisense support for javascript again. Same procedure as every year. But it's not that easy because of the dynamically type system of js as we know. The new idea is to use typescript type definitions files ALSO you don't want to write in TypeScript. The definitions are only helper during the development time in Visual Studio to support the code completion/intellisense. It's based on a new language service called "salsa".

Maybe this could be a good enhancement too for supporting a better code completion and go to whatever if netbeans could use TS typedefinition files too?



P.S. the other thing to resolve better and maybe have type checking while writing plain js code is to use JsDoc as I wrote it here:
