  1. Quick Lorem Ipsum generator

    Quick Lorem Ipsum generator.
    As a designer you probably know about Lorem Ipsum. For those who don't, Lorem Ipsum is a huge latin text which can be used as dummy text in projects.
    So no more browser now all in you IDE

          • Customisable Syntax Formatting

            We already have the fantastic formatting with Ctrl+K,Ctrl+D and "quote, bracket, brace" auto-closing.

            What I would love to see is more control over specific formatting, like braces on new lines when creating a new function and a separate one for statements (if, else, select, try, catch etc.) and options such as Ctrl+K,Ctrl+D formatting removing double line-spacing or trailing/redundant white-space

            To be clear on the exact intent I've included examples below.

            New line function brace - disabled:
            function doSomething()
            {
            //do something
            }

            New line function brace - enabled:
            function doSomething(){
            //do something
            }

            New line function brace - enabled
            New…

            • TypeScript intellisense

              WebMatrix is great and TypeScript intellisense would make it even better. Coloring is here, but without code completion it hardly can claim TypeScript support.

              • Sand box release site

                Love the platform, it has room for improvement but excellent concept and good execution so far.

                Could you please add a second ftp publishing option (destination), ie for sandbox or beta releases.
                So there would be two options when publishing, either to the beta test site or the application live site.

                Also, add macro buttons which simply execute batch files.
                Currently we use batch files to compile other applications into the one site (and to do our sand box publishing), this is due to the complexity of our project. It would be great if we could essentially have 'custom' buttons…

                  • Pressing tab key does not should delete paragraph

                    Pressing tab key when we have a selected paragraph it deletes the text when it should give the indenting.

                      • Support MySQL 5.6

                        I request to add support for other versions of MySQL too, such as MySQL 5.5/5.6 because availablity of support for any MySQL 5.1 forces WebMatrix users to stick with MySQL 5.1

                        • right click "format code" and right click "comment/uncomment code" options

                          this could be easy to implement. another ideas is to allow us to customize right click context menu ourselves.

                            • Remove/Reconfigure source control settings

                              Once you select a TFS server, for example, BOOM, thats it! Locked in. Cannot undo or change TFS settings for that particular site, even if you blow away the site files, appData, IISExpress settings, etc and try to re-establish the project fresh.

                              WebMatrix seems to hide the config for this (for everything for that matter, very annoying). UNINSTALL is the only remedy, such that it will finally delete wherever the dang settings are hiding.

                                    • WebMatrix WebSecurity.InitializeDatabaseConnection only works if the default provider in a instance of SimpleMembershipProvider.

                                      WebMatrix WebSecurity.InitializeDatabaseConnection only works if the default provider is an instance of SimpleMembershipProvider.

                                      The overload method that takes ProviderName, does not use this value when resolving the instance, instead it's hardwired to use Member.Provider.

                                        • Make it understand that the ternary operator in javascript is not a syntax error

                                          var str = (something==true) ? "cat" : "dog";
                                          This is legal javascript, but webmatrix sees it as an error.
