Code Completion for jQuery Mobile
jQuery Mobile is a touch-optimized framework for building websites and apps for popular smartphones, tablets, and desktop devices. It uses HTML5 data attributes to offer a rich set of markup-based widgets. WebMatrix 2 introduces a code completion feature for jQuery Mobile that suggests appropriate data- attributes and values as you type, removing the need to memorize exact keywords or look up references.
