Issue ID




Non-Unity JavaScript files inside the StreamingAssets folder are being compiled as UnityScript files



Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the user-attached project
2. Navigate to Assets/StreamingAssets/html/javascript
3. Open any of the .js files and edit something, add an additional space for example
4. Save and return to Unity

Expected result: the files are not being treated as a part of the project's code
Actual result: the files are being treated as regular Unity scripts, thus causing various compilation errors

Reproduced with: 2018.2.0a1, 2018.2.0f2, 2018.3.0a6
Not reproduced with: 2017.1.3p4, 2017.4.6f1, 2018.1.7f1

    I created codes in Javascript using Microsoft's Visual Studio Code, yet I can't get them to work in version 2018.3.5f. Any way to fix this issue? Please contact me, I really need to get my game finished and off the ground ASAP. NO, C# and any other code language is not an option, JS or nothing at this point. I am not going to Re-code and entire seven year project.

    Will this fix get added to 2018.2 also?

    Work arrounds:
    Restart Unity every time you make a change.
    Downgrade to 2018.1
