JetBrains Rider integrates with the AngularJS framework also known as Angular 1 intended for developing single page web applications. JetBrains Rider suggests AngularJS-aware completion options for predefined and custom
ng directives and for controller and application names, as well as code insights for data bindings inside curly-brace expressions
&routeProvider and the template. For AngularJS entities, use the Go To Symbol navigation.
Before you start
To open an application that is organized in the directory structure and does not have a solution file, press Ctrl+O or choosefrom the main menu, and then specify the root folder of the application.
Creating a new AngularJS application
You can install AngularJS in a solution either manually, by downloading the AngularJS framework, or using the Bower package manager.
To install and configure AngularJS in an empty solution manually
Download the AngularJS framework at http://angularjs.org/.
In the Libraries area, click the Add button.
In the New Library dialog box that opens, specify the name of the library.

- In the Type field, specify which version you have downloaded and are going to add.
If you added
Angular.js, choose Debug. This version is helpful in the development environment, especially for debugging.
If you added the minified

Starting with an existing AngularJS application
If you already have Angular sources in your project (for example, in the
To check out the application sources from your version control
Click Check out from Version Control on the Welcome screen or choose on the main menu.
Select your version control system from the list.
In the VCS-specific dialog that opens, type your credentials and the repository to check out the application sources from.
To download the dependencies

Using AngularJS Router state diagrams
You can see a diagram illustrating the relations between views, states, and templates in AngularJS applications that use ui-router.
To generate and view a diagram
Open the desired file in the editor, and then chooseon the context menu. JetBrains Rider generates a diagram and shows it in a separate editor tab.
To navigate from an element in the diagram to the code that implements this element
Select it and choose Jump to Source on the context menu.
