JavaScript Syntax Highlighting VS2015 CE

    Question

  • Visual Studio 2015 doesn't highlight JavaScript syntax other than the very basic functions such as var, function, if, else.

    How can we get better syntax highlighting such as Monokai or Seti into VS2015?

  • Hi David,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    To get more Syntax highlighting for JS, we could download a Monokai theme for vs2015.

    I just added it to my settings and the JS code will look this:

    GitHub link: https://github.com/Ibrahim-Islam/monokai-vs-2015

    After downloading and extracting it, add it to settings by following steps:

    Tools > Import and Export Settings > Select "Import selected environment settings" > Save current settings or just replace > Browse to the monokai_15.vssettings file downloaded/cloned from here > Finish

    I hope my reply it's helpful to you. And please mark it as answer if it'll have helped resolved your doubts, and feel free to let me know if you have any other issue.

    Have a nice day:)

    Best regards,

    Fletcher
