Angular Language Service



This extension provides a rich editing experience for Angular templates, both inline and external templates including:

  • Completions lists
  • AOT Diagnostic messages
  • Quick info
  • Go to definition


Download the extension from Visual Studio Marketplace.


The language service extension relies on the @angular/language-service and typescript packages for its backend. These packages are loaded, in order of priority, from:

  1. The path specified by angular.ngdk and typescript.tsdk, respectively, in project or global settings.
  2. (Recommended) The version of these packages bundled with the Angular Language Service extension.
  3. The version of these packages present in the current workspace's node_modules.

We suggest not specifying neither angular.ngdk nor typescript.tsdk in your VSCode settings per method (1) above. If the @angular/language-service and typescript packages are loaded by methods (1) or (3), there is a potential for a mismatch between the API expected by @angular/language-service and the API provided by typescript. This could lead to a failure of the language service extension.

For more information, please see #594.

Installing a particular release build

Download the .vsix file for the release that you want to install from the releases tab.

Do not open the .vsix file directly. Instead, in Visual Studio code, go to the extensions tab. Click on the "..." menu in the upper right corner of the extensions tab, select "Install from vsix..." and then select the .vsix file for the release you just downloaded.

The extension can also be installed with the following command:

code --install-extension /path/to/ngls.vsix
