Unfortunately, it causes crashes nearly every time I start to debug the web project. I've tried the latest version and have the latest update to VS 2012. (When this is installed, can't debug, and VS2012 crashes, when it's not, everything works smoothly).
In theory this plugin would easily earn 5 stars, but it seems there are some issues with the js bundle plugin/minifier and JSHint. Two things: 1.) The minified version doesn't seem to work all the time (I mean it might be something I could fix if I would "optimize" the JS code a bit more, but for small web project I just want something that works out of the box). One thing it "broke", e.g. was the jQuery plugin jTruncate. 2.) While it seem to compress better than YUI, Google Closure Compiler seems to make a better job even with the Simple optimzations. So maybe Web Essentials could use GCC and allow a new preference, something like "advanced=true" to achieve even better minification. 3.) And possibly the most important thing: JSHint should become more customizable. E.g. there is this other VS Extension JSLint that imo does a much better job (though I don't really want another VS extension installed): You can set your custom namespaces, it is possible to check a single file on save (much better than checking all files on build, which can get really annoying if you work on big JS projects). Anyway, thanks for this quite helpful extension and up the good work.
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.
In the latest version (2.5.1), when right clicking within a .css file ->Web Essentials->Sort All Properties(Shift+Alt+S) it actually breaks the formatting in the css and causes errors with brackets, etc.
Is there a "Wrap with abbreviation" hotkey for the Zen Coding whereby I can select a block of text, hit the hotkey, enter a Zen Coding 'command' and it'll wrap the selection with the expanded markup? E.g. I highlight a block of text, hit the hotkey, enter p.footNote and it'll wrap my select block with <p class="footnote"></p>.
I can't seem to find anything regarding this. Thanks!
I am getting the below message. I have Constructors in separate files.
JSHint (r10): 'MyJsClass' is not defined.'
It would be nice if it could see the reference path which is used for intellisense and figure out which all js files are included and related.
/// <reference path="~/Js/MyJsClass.js" />
I am even open to list all files that should be treated as one file. I think feature to exclude files is on its way, why not have a feature to list all files that should be considered as one library.
I know in the change log for v2.5 it says "Removed LESS/CoffeeScript editors".
Not sure what that means. After updating to v2.5 I lost all support for .less. There is no intellisense, no screen that shows output css, no icons that distinguish .less files. Is that expected behavior?
It is upsetting. I always check Change Log before I install an update. Stuff like "If you use LESS or CoffeeScript, wait to update until tomorrow." should be written there, not on some social website...
So now that the LESS editor is part of the ASP .NET update, does that mean you will be unable to release further updates/bugfixes for it? It still has some significant bugs that have not been addressed, and having to wait for the next ASP .NET update to hopefully fix them is discouraging.
I wanted to outline my code using regions, but I can't because there are razor tags '@Url.content' inside the area I want to collapse. Is there a workaround on this?

The Markdown preview feature is great.
But there doesn't seem to be support for Table structures, e.g.:
| Col1 | Col2 |
| Data | Data |
| Data2 | Data2 |
Also, the code highlighting block doesn't work when used with a language suffix, e.g.
