Node.js Tools for Visual Studio

Microsoft and the “community” has developed Node.js Tools for Visual Studio (NTVS) to enable the development of Node.js applications ( v0.10.20 or later) using Visual Studio (VS2012 and VS2013).

NTVS is a free open-source plug-in available from CodePlex for Visual Studio and is provided under the Apache licence. It currently is available as an Alpha release and only supports the full VS editions – Premium, Professional, Test Professional and Ultimate

When installed you can quickly get started developing your Node.js application
