Answering to myself. Uninstalled and installed version 18.104.22.168 found from nightly builds feed (http://madskristensen.net/post/Web-Essentials-nightly-builds.aspx). And I'm back in business :)
There's also 2.7 version available from Chocolatey Gallery, but at least in my case installing that returned back the 2.8. version.
I want to do exactly what you did, I need @includes working. I got the nightly builds extension that you have the link for, but I don't see how to get a prior version? How do I select 22.214.171.124 to install it? Thanks!
Hello, it seem IE had a bug with the following syntax:
//@ sourceMappingURL=x.js.map :
When could we expect WebEssential to upgrade to the new syntax :
I am just learning how to use Web Essentials 2012 so maybe this is my inexperience and not a bug, but it doesn't seem like CSS add region is working for me.
1) within a CSS file, on a new line I start typing the letters ad
2) I see the drop down that shows Add region... at the top
3) I have tried several things to get the region to work including:
a. pressing the tab - I just get the word address. The list item Add Region never highlights.
b. pressing the up arrow to select Add Region and then pressing tab. When I do this I get just the word region without the comment marks. I get the same effect when I double click on Add Region.
c. If I manually type the region as shown in the docs like this:
If I do this I get two collapse icons, one next to the first region line and one next to the second comment line. If I don't include the body in comments tag vs highlights it as a css error.
Other features of web essentials seem to be working (like zen coding in HTML). I also tried uninstalling web essentials and re-installing from a fresh download.
Can anyone shed any light on this? Thanks
After upgrading to v2.8 today, any .less files that have @import statements in them are broken. I have found someone else having the same issue, on this stack overflow topic: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17703093/web-essentials-v2-8-less-import-error/17735609#17735609
I am not receiving any error messages, just a blank preview window, along with blank .css and .min.css files, so my styling is now broken.
Do you have any ideas what is going on?
Unfortunately, I'm having the same issues. In 2012 it appears that the relative path bug has not been fixed, although I can use the @import as far back as one folder (../file.less) I believe. My project structure requires 3 levels up. I tried in 2012.2 and 2012.3.
Using the preview for 2013, no @import works. This is such a great addition to Visual Studio, it's such a shame that one single item keeps bogging me down.
When I write:
The css is compiled but #normalize is "undeclared.
#normalize is declared but the css doesn't compile.
After I upgraded to 2012.3 update (I think it's related), my LESS intellisense and syntax highlighting stopped working. web essentials apparently still work, as I can still see CSS preview (correctly syntax highlighted), LESS compiles and I can change options.
I just upgraded to 2.8 hoping this has been resolved, but I can see the same effect. No LESS highlighting nor intellisense.
