AngularJS Question

WebStorm - "angular" is not defined

NOTE: This is a WebStorm issue, not an angular.js issue.

Screencast of the problem: http://f.cl.ly/items/302s0d1k1i3i1B2p0W09/ws703-angular-not-defined.mp4


I have the following in my index.html file:

<script src="vendor/js/angular.min.js"></script>
<script src="app/js/scratch.js"></script>

In scratch.js when I reference "angular" I keep getting this "angular is not defined" message from JSHint. How do I make it so angular is seen as defined in this file so JSHint stops complaining about it? Is this a configuration issue? Please advise.

WebStorm v7.0.3 / Mac OSX v10.9.1


The very first example in the documentation page of JSHint is the following:

Configuration file is a simple JSON file that specifies which JSHint options to turn on or off. For example, the following file will enable warnings about undefined and unused variables and tell JSHint about a global variable named MY_GLOBAL.

  "undef": true,
  "unused": true,
  "globals": { "MY_GLOBAL": false }

Replace MY_GLOBAL with angular, and you won't have this JSHint warning anymore.
