  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

    • One-click Prefix support for CSS

      It would be great if I could add prefix easily without typing them all. For example, after writing the CSS in standard form, I will click a button, and all the necessary prefixes will be added to the CSS.

        • Run multiple websites at a time.

          I could run only one site at a time. Its better making possible of running multiple selected sites when web matrix has started.

              • Cannot install NuGet package ExcelPackageF because WebMatrix NuGet version too old

                When I tried to use the ASP.Net Web Pages Administration portal to view ExcelPackageF details, I get an error saying this package is incompatible with version 1.6.30117.9648 of NuGet.

                The error refers me to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=213942 which basically lands me on http://nuget.org/

                Here I see NuGet is at version 2.2.1

                I am not sure if I can just install NuGet independently of WebMatrix to the latest version or I need for WebMatrix update to get NuGet updated.

                I suppose the suggestion here is to update the NuGet supplied with WebMatrix or have some built-in documentation or ability to get NuGet version…

                • One-click security/membership integration.

                  Right now if you need security/membership in a website you need to begin with the starter template and build your site up from there. If you want to use another template things can get very time consuming.

                  Would be good to import your HTML5 template and add security/membership to it in a few clicks.

                        • Add a configurable "external tools" menu so I can run build scripts etc.

                          I shouldn't have to write an extension for every command line tool I want to use. It would be nice if there were an external tools menu similar to what is available in Visual Studio, built into WebMatrix.
