Node.js Tools 1.0 for Visual Studio (NTVS) has reached version 1.0 and can now be downloaded. The plug in lets you program Node.js within the Visual Studio IDE, and supports editing with IntelliSense, debugging locally and remotely, profiling and deployment of Node.js projects.
The new release has improvements in the editing options, code completion, and npm integration. It supports syntax highlighting, code-folding such as brace-completion, and automatic formatting.
The code completion means NTVS will statically analyze your project to provide you with syntactically-correct code completions for your Node.js code and packages.
The REPL interactive window is another area that has been improved, so you can see inline results for code, with full syntax highlighting and completions.
The npm integration has improved so you can use the Solution Explorer to manage the npm dependencies, and can search for and install dependencies from the npm registry in the UI. If dependencies are missing, NTVS will warn you.
The debugging options mean you can step through your code with breakpoints and automatic exception notifications, and use features including conditional breakpoints, tracepoints, hit counts, and edit-and-continue.
It seems that if you want an IDE for Node Windows is a good place to start.
