Happy New Year! And with the new year, we've got new tools. Today we're excited to share a major upgrade to Aurelia's VS Code Extension.
With the latest version of Aurelia's VS Code Extension, you can now leverage enhanced view intelligence. Here are four features you can take advantage of today:
VS Code can now provide binding expression autocompletion inside HTML attributes and content. There's no more need to try to remember your data model or switch back and forth between files.
VS Code can now autocomplete custom element names and their bindable properties in templates. With this update, there's no more need to remember element names. The extension will help you out by providing a completion list.
Goto Component Definition
When working inside a template, you can now jump to the code for custom elements used within that template.
