  1. Improve url comment placement when embedding images as base64 dataUri

    When using the 'Embed as base64 dataUri' option, it places the preserved comment containing the original url string after the embedded base64 data.

    The code would be more readable with the original url string placed before the embedded data e.g.:

    background-image: /*Images/image.png*/ url('data:image/png;base64,iVBOR...')

    Currently, in VS2013, if the commented url string is manual re-positioned before the embedded data, it prevents the 'Re-embed dataUri from ...' option being used.

      • Add IntelliSense for LESS functions

        The vast number of LESS functions, like darken(), ceil(), etc. currently have to known to the developer either through memory or by having lesscss.org/functions open side-by-side. Visual Studio IntelliSense for these functions would be extremely helpful.

        • Vertical split for html editors

          I'd love to see a vertical split option for html, js/ts, and css/less editors. Monitors are wide, not tall, so the built-in horizontal split is useless in most cases.

                • Generate ES6 import statements for TypeScript modules instead of reference tags

                  Currently, when a '.ts' (TypeScript) file is drag-and-dropped from the Solution Explorer into an open '.ts' file, a reference is automatically inserted at the top of the file:

                  /// <reference path="../playback/key.ts" />

                  This is fine when a project is being developed using internal modules (namespaces), but is virtually useless when external modules (modules) are used instead. It would be much more helpful if the following was generated instead:

                  import {} from "../playback/key";

                  This could be either selectable, or auto-detected: if a '.ts' file has a top-level import or export statement, it is an external module, and other '.ts' files dragged…

                  • Make the extension available for VS Team Services online

                    When searching the online gallery of extension in VS Team Services, I find many common VS extensions, but sadly not Web Essentials, or Web Compiler, or Bundler and Minifier. Any chance they can be made available that way?

                    • rtl css in visual studio 2015

                      in visual studio 2013 there was a support generating right to left css base on ( I guess) https://www.npmjs.com/package/rtlcss
                      in visual studio 2015 that option is gone and none of the extra extensions dont have it.

                      • HTML (Web forms) tag unwrapping

                        Option to unwrap html tags. Since the beginning of Visual Studio there has been an option (default enabled) to wrap html tags exceeding 80 chars, the leftover of this option is still visible in multiple projects I work on.

                        It would be nice to have an option to format the document, that would also unwrap the tags, making a tag singleline instead of multiline.

                        Example;
                        before -
                        <asp:Label ID="Name" Style="z-index: 101; left: 8px; position: absolute; top: 12px"
                        runat="server">Navn</asp:Label>
                        after -
                        <asp:Label ID="Name" Style="z-index: 101; left: 8px; position: absolute; top: 12px" runat="server">Navn</asp:Label>

                              • LESS No IE Compatibility

                                Provide a LESS setting to enable the option for No IE Compatibility with the --no-ie-compat flag for the compiler.

                                The data-uri function does not base64 encode images over 32kb as IE8 cannot display a data url bigger than this.

                                When ignoring support for IE8 it would be good to allow base64 encoding of images larger than 32kb with this option.

                                  • Keep F12 Colors as HEX

                                    The 'Save F12 Changes' and 'F12 auto-sync' features are amazing and they're working great. I just have a minor problem:

                                    I change a color in F12, say set it to `#BBB`, but in the corresponding .css file, it's saved as `rgb(187, 187, 187)`. I want it to remain `#BBB`, or whatever I set in F12 for that matter, I don't want it automatically converted.

                                    I'm not sure if it's a missing feature or there's a flag somewhere but having this would be amazing.

                                    Thanks for the amazing extension.

                                    • Preview TypeScript not available in VS 2015?

                                      The TyepScript Features page on the WebEssentials website says that Preview Window is avaiable in WE2012, WE2015, and WE2015. However, I can't seem to find how to enable that Preview Window in Visual Studio 2015 with WE2015. Any thoughts or instructions?

                                      • Write a Css Processor using ASP.Net Razor as engine

                                        Basically, it would be great to make a clone of Sass for ASP.Net, but using Razor as an engine. The dev would make a .cscss file using the same principle as the .cshtml file for HTML. This way, the server would RENDER a stylesheet when receiving a request to the relevant address.
                                        The possibilities would be endless, like generating specialized stylesheets depending on content, allowing access to project variables and viewbag objects directly in the CSS, and (HOLYGRAAAAAIL) using static-typed C# to create functions within stylesheets!!!
                                        I know this is probably beyond the scope of anything that you do with…

                                        • Emment/Zen conding autocomplete

                                          It would be great to have ability to have autocompletion for zencoding/emment like typing. I mean autocompleting tag names, attributes, maybe existing classes.

                                          I do undestand that is not that simple to determine what do I typing regular text or zen-string. But it migh have some workarounds.

                                          As an example hotkey to activate zen coding+ autocomplete mode. Or whaterer.
