I had to disable this extension because it essentially made Ctrl+Comma unresponsive. I've got a web solution with about 47 projects, and I use Ctrl+Comma a lot to jump between files. But with this extension installed, I have to wait up to a minute for files to appear in the Navigate To window. I'm wondering if it has to do with the Ctrl+Comma stuff briefly mentioned in the 2.7 change notes, but I'm not sure.
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.
When you compile a not valid SASS files a Link Error is generated.
This link is not connected to a running Web server.
How can I customize this link.
Something went wrong reaching: http://127.0.0.1:6642/?service=SCSS&sourceFileName=C:%5CWork%5CMCH.CMS.Sass%5CMCH.CMS.Sass%5Cproject%5CCongress%5CBuehne%5Cportalbuehne_did.scss&targetFileName=C:%5CWork%5CMCH.CMS.Sass%5CMCH.CMS.Sass%5Cproject%5CCongress%5CBuehne%5Cportalbuehne_did.css&mapFileName=C:%5CWork%5CMCH.CMS.Sass%5CMCH.CMS.Sass%5Cproject%5CCongress%5CBuehne%5Cportalbuehne_did.css.map&precision=5&outputStyle=expanded&sourceMapURL&
Recompile all less files worked just fine, but when I've checkout fresh version into another folder it stop working (including recompile after build).
If I open less file, change it and save (css is created) then this file works automatically since then just fine.
Should I open each time I create a new repository all less files, or there is another way?
The only way, find out for now is to commit .css files too. Though all my .css files are autogenerated and therefore it is a pitty, that I should commit .css along with .less and checkin .css on change of less too.
So, after clicking one-click publishing, I see this in my output put window in VS2012:
========== Build: 1 succeeded, 0 failed, 1 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========
========== Publish: 1 succeeded, 0 failed, 0 skipped ==========
9/10/2014 3:15:40 PM: ImportMixins.less compiled
9/10/2014 3:15:40 PM: rs-ui-tabs-from-bulleted-list.less compiled
9/10/2014 3:15:40 PM: ImportVariables.less compiled
9/10/2014 3:15:40 PM: variables.less compiled
9/10/2014 3:15:40 PM: rs-custom-controls.less compiled
This appears to me to be compiling LESS files after publishing my site.
Is there a way to ensure compilation before publishing other than doing a manual build prior to hitting publish?
I am having this issue now as well. I have one site.scss file that imports various other partials. It was working fine until a few days ago when (seemingly) at random they started failing to compile on save. Now the partials require the other partials to be imported into them before they will compile. I've triple-checked my @import flow and it is perfect! Sassmeister and other compilers have no issue.
Specifically, I get the "unparsable compilation error" as well as meaningless "(X)101" errors in the Error List. No line numbers or suggestions to be found.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I just installed this extension looking for this awesome functionality. Unfortunately, I can not create a image sprite from my images. The option directly does not appears at context menu. I don't know how to enable it. Am I forgetting any step after installing the extension?
I am working with VS Professional 2012 (Update 4), and ASP.NET Web Frameworks and Tools 2013.1.
Thank you so much for your time and efforts!
First off, great tool you are providing. Have made my network footprint as small as possible.
First problem i noticed was that when i enabled JS Minification, the *.map files were getting 404 responses. After review of the *.min.js file i noticed that the Mapping URL line did not include the folder directory they were located.
Had to add the folder to the 'sourceMappingURL' in order to not get the 404:
Not sure if its possible but might be well worth looking into it for 2013, if not 2012 update.
