Developing HTML Projects in Visual Studio

From previous work in ASP MVC 4/5, I am aware that Visual Studio offers a great development environment for the HTML and JavaScript development. I am used to the layout and find it very easy and comfortable to work with.

But what happens when I just want to work with pure HTML and JavaScript, can I leverage the Visual Studio for my similar development which does not incorporate any .NET compilation and working with pure HMTL and JavaScript.

The answer I found is YES….We can!!!

In order to achieve the same, the following steps needs to be undertaken:

1. Create a Blank Solution in you Visual Studio
