Now VS2015 installation includes old version of node.js and npm. Also devs have newer version installed globally on their machines.
So it would be awesome to have node and npm, which are shipped with VS2015 as fallback and set higher priority for already installed external web tools.
I propose to have following order:
3. $(DevEnvDir)\EXTENSIONS\MICROSOFT\WEB TOOLS\External
$(DevEnvDir)\EXTENSIONS\MICROSOFT\WEB TOOLS\External\git31 votes
Thank you for using Visual Studio and for your commitment to improving it. We are currently evaluating whether we will be able to include this into the product.
