I'd like to generate a static class of version numbers (hash/file write time) for bundled files so I can append them to the url's that reference the files (in both webforms/mvc). I've struggled a bit with "Bundling & Minification" to achieve something like that but I much prefer just pre-bundling the files using WE2012 and would love if I could extend the bundling process with a T4 script. Is that sort of thing possible?
When I change my.less file and save it, Web Essentials say in it's console "LESS: Compiling my.less". The compilation is going about a minute or more. Can it be fixed? Great plugin but it's too long to wait a minute to test page after each .less correction.
Em... It seems it's because of firewall.
I modified WebEssentials2012.dll file from your extension to use single slash and now it compiles immediately.
cscript //nologo lessc.wsf input.less [output.css] [-compress]
I modified to this:
cscript /nologo lessc.wsf input.less [output.css] [-compress]
I dunno why (and dunno the consequences) but now it runs immediately :).
Even after installing web essential in VS 2012, i am not able debug ts files, on inserting breakpoints it says. "The breakpoint will not currently be hit, No symbols have been loaded for this document".
Further test: It crashes if I leave some .cshtml files opened in the editor window, close VS2012, then open VS2010 and reopen that MVC project.
If I close all .chtml files before closing VS2012, then no problem when I open the project next time.
