    • Zen coding for xslt

      It would be great if we could use zen coding in XSL too. Just html zen-coding in xslt files would suffice, but maybe there are xslt-specifics to be added too.

      • ZenCoding Random lorem generator

        Add a random words option to the lorem generator.
        we could still use the 10 and 30 word setting but take different parts of the lorem text for each generated lorem to make the page appear more like a real word page.

        This would make the lorem generator more useful when verifying page layouts

        • JSDoc Autocompletion / Intellisense parsing

          Basic JSDoc support has been added, but it would be really nice if upon typing /** the basic structure of the JSDoc was created. For a function, this would mean adding @param tags with the argument names based on whatever parameters the function has.

          In addition, it would be helpful if the Intellisense for JSDocs worked more like XML docs Intellisense. Specifically, if it was able to bold the relevant @param tag in a JSDoc as you're filling out a function signature.

          Lastly, the JSDoc intellisense currently includes the * character that normally precedes each line of a JSDoc. I…

            • Display a notification when viewing a file created by a bundle

              You can currently edit a bundle file without any notification.

              This is potentially dangerous as your code will get overwritten.

              • Regions Enhanced + Enhanced Scrollbar

                Hi,

                My code in Visual Studio 2012 is from some reason so loooooong (don't want to split it in more files at the moment or at all) and I found very useful the Enhanced Scrollbar. I have switched to "Show Full Mode" so I can jump to a code IF I recognise the code pattern drawing in the "Show Full Mode" BUT as it is not obviously readable in the Show Full Mode scrollbar I have got one idea which would help I belieave all of us to jump super quickly to the part of the code we want. So…

                • use shorthand notation - combine properties

                  When you see the message telling you to use short hand notation for a collection of css properties, give you the option to correct the issue and combine the uncombined properties.

                      • Add a Media Query Explorer window

                        When making a large responsive site, keeping track of all of the media queries can be challenging.

                        Can you add a tool window that will show every @media line in every CSS and LESS file in the project (or in a specific folder) in a timeline-style view, and have a width slider that allows me to easily see which rules will apply at a specific width?

                        This would be particularly handy when making sure that there are no unintended one-pixel overlaps in min- and max- width queries

                          I would love to see intellisense support for named parameters in LESS. So a mixin like: .box(@width:100%, @height:100%, @margin:1em) could be called like: div { .box(@margin:2em);} with intellisense and no warnings.

                            We have CSS and JS bundling (thank you!), now please can we have TS bundling that works just like JS bundling. It should also support source maps + minification!

                              Bundles are great, but i have to resave it everytime i've made a change. Would be nice to put the .less file directly into it as well. But solving the resaving part will make it awesome.

                                The TypeScript team decided to go the JSDoc comment route, but all of my converted TypeScript files, still contain the 'old' XML Comments.

                                It would be a great help for me to be able to convert these XML comments into JSDoc format (solution or project wide / this file only / selected XML comment block).

                                • Make ZenCoding Expansions work at all insert points

                                  Right now, ZenCoding expansion only seems to work on blank lines. This makes it nearly useless because its so annoying to add a bunch of blank lines to make it work.

                                  For example, these won't expand:

                                  <div>p>a*3
                                  p>a*3<div>
                                  </div>p>a*3
                                  p>a*3</div>

                                  • Jump tabs with backspace and arrow-key navigation where tabs are spaces

                                    4-space tabs are very common on open source projects. Sublime Text 2 and Eclipse jump the tab with backspace, but VS does not. Furthermore, arrow-key navigation would be only moves the cursor 1 space, regardless of spaces as tabs setting.

                                    • allow us to specify a JavaScript compressor and which files to compress together.

                                      I'd like to be able to use Google Closure as my JavaScript compressor and be able to specify command line options to pass to Closure. I'd also like to be able to either define my own bundles for concatenation or let me enter a CLI command to run upon save.

                                      • Expose configuration file for CssComb sort options

                                        Ideally that could work similar to how it's done on some of the other CssComb editor plugins (described on http://csscomb.com/about/).
                                        Or if that is too much effort, there should be at least on option to not use CssComb sorting, but rather use the alphabetical sorting that used to be there before CssComb was introduced to WebEssentials.

                                        • Less build time compile

                                          Liked you new version 2.3 that compiles the css on build. But it doesnt seem to work if you dont have the css file initially. You see we just want to have our less file in our version control system and that all css files would be build on our build server when building.
