I would previously have rated this 5 stars, but this latest version runs the "linter" on every build, which basically kills my development environment on any project of any size. There does not appear to be a way to prevent it from running on minimized files.
You can turn this behavior off in the options, otherwise I would have to disable this extension entirely.
Freezes Visual Studio completely when I have knockout attributes in the HTML.. Have to terminate VS and restart over and over again.. The web essentials is disabled until this is fixed.. I really hope you work on this.
This add-in is great in VS2012, except for one problem: most of the time when I try to save a .coffee file that has syntax errors, Visual Studio crashes. Let me know if there is any info I can send to help you debug this.
Really great ideas, but JS extensions are way too slow and seem to compete with MS JS extensions, which are better. Can you add the ability to selectively enable/disable the tools? That might be a huge improvement. The CSS extensions are awesome, but I can't leave this thing running because it kills the JS editor.
Hi, gotta say I love your plugin, but I noticed that after the last update, visual studio 2012 is now showing "Web Essentials: Bundles updated" as the last status message after building my project (and my current one is not even a web project). Problem is it displays this even when the build failed, so I can no longer check if the build was successful or not, since I don't use the default solution errors view, and don't display the build console either..
I usually use tabs when writing C#, but spaces in CSS. We recently switched to LESS, so i was wondering which editor the LESS files use with Web Essentials?
If it doesn't already, would it be possible to change it to use the CSS editor, so i have the same settings for CSS & LESS? (or event the Plain Text editor, if the CSS editor causes problems with built in css validation)
What's the deal with the sudden drop of vendor prefixes? Just because most people may be using HTML5 compliant browsers, that don't need them, does not mean that everyone is. This was a very dumb decision on the author's part.
When I edit .less files on a remote server, the LESS compiler chokes on @import
For example this chokes:
I've tried absolute paths (and verified accessibility via a browser) and that chokes as well:
Is there a way that we can be clever in the way we process remote .less files?
I filed a bug for this via the email link but haven't heard anything yet.
Are there plans to fix this? Unfortunately this plugin is not usable until this is fixed.
If you happen to have a function and a variable with same name in a typescript class, Visual Studio hangs for ever. This is not valid for typescript, but until you correct it Visual Studio should just display the error...
