VS Code JavaScript Module Resolution IntelliSense Status Update

17 Mar 2016

Last week I wrote a blog post upon the release of 0.10.10 indicating that IntelliSense in this version of VS Code was “broken”. After discussion with the team (publically on the GitHub repo) it appears as though this is by design with the switch to Salsa.

In short, going forward with Node.js software projects developed in VS Code, create the jsconfig.json file in the root with the following file contents…

{
  "compilerOptions": {
    "module": "commonjs"
  }
}

Enjoy!
