AngularJS Code Snippets for Visual Studio

Here is a collection of code snippets for Visual Studio that speed up the development of AngularJS applications. These code snippets are based on the work of angularjs-livetpls with a few additions. Such as:

  • More snippets for writing Jasmine (expect...)
  • A couple general purpose JavaScript snippets (anonymous function, immediately invoke function expression)
  • HTML snippets for using built-in AngularJS directives (attribute style only, at present)

These snippets have been tested in Visual Studio 2012, but I expect them to work in VS2005+ (let me know if they don't, or submit a pull request).


Download v1.0 (.zip)


  1. Download the AngularJS Snippets folder and all of its contents from this respository here: https://github.com/tyson-benson/AngularJS-Snippets/zipball/master

  9. Repeat steps 5-7 for the "Documents/Visual Studio 2012/Code Snippets/AngularJS-Snippets" folder.
  10. Click OK to exit the Code Snippet Manager.
  11. Restart Visual Studio.
