Get full IntelliSense for everything in package.json including live search results from the online npm registry.
Easily glance at the different properties associated with each package by hovering the mouse over the name of the dependency.
As soon as you save any changes to the
package.json file, Visual Studio automatically calls
npm install to install or restore all packages.
The Solution Explorer integrates with npm to show a logical tree-view structure of the package dependencies.
Perform common tasks on individual packages using the light bulbs that automatically appear next to each package.
To make sure that npm is always able to read the package.json file, Visual Studio automatically strips the Byte Order Mark (BOM) when the file is saved.
