  1. 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.

    • 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.

        • TFS configuration cannot see changes of a modified project

          If you establish a site (pulled local copy from Azure in my case) and then configure the site to use TFS, it works as expected. If you then delete the local copy, and re-download the same site again, TFS is completely broken. Cannot check files in. "No files to check-in" is all you get. This is permanent and show stopping. Uninstall of WebMatrix and deleting every possible trace of the site in AppData, My Docs, etc, will NOT fix this problem.

          • TFS bugs galore

            With a project connected to TFS

            -Add a new file
            -Add to source control (dont check in)
            -Delete the file
            -Check-in

            Error, cannot add the file. No kidding, its not there, and we don't want it added anymore. Congrats, you are now in a stuck loop, as WebMatrix insists that this deleted file is to be added every time you check in.

            WebMatrix does NOT respect the actual activity that is going on in the project. TFS integration simply is not ready for prime time. Many issues like this exist.

            Here is another:
            If you get yourself into a situation…

              • Remove old versions of applications from WebPI

                Web Platform Installer has a bunch of old applications (IIS 8 Express, etc) that have been replaced (IIS 8 Express RTW, or the multiple Azure SDKs). It would be great to remove or hide these older versions, and just show the most recent version of each install.

                      ... It's should be great to open files in separated windows.

                      • Auto Recognition of CMS Type on Open as a website in WebMatrix

                        It would be good if for example i download WordPress, or Joomla or ... have a site that is made in WordPress already for Webmatrix to automatically converts it to WordPress project when i open it so the folders are locked, wordpress intelli sense and all other stuff. This isn't possible with current projects just when you install new one from gallery.

                          • reload dialog always shows on remote projects

                            There is a bug when saving files on a remote project thru FTP. after the file is saved the program detects the file was changed and shows up the dialog asking if you want to reload. it does this even if the checkbox to not show again is clicked

                                Our company would like to start a small ecommerce solution. Our product line is small so NOPCommerce is overkill. We'd like a solution that can interface with a gateway/payment processor like Braintree. Possible?

                                    i think it ll be nice if windows OS or webmatrix let us acces to the internal items of a psd file like Expression Web do but not only when insert html tag element of name img but also when use css properties that use url to an image .

                                        Improve publishing to IIS for internal hosting / Intranets etc... for better take up of Razor etc..

                                        Presently it is a very complex process to publish to IIS, or setup IIS for web matrix publishing. It envolves checking all versions of the .net framework on the server if using w2k8 etc... and then various settings etc... this should be more simple such as, allow publishing from webmatrix, then option in webmatrix to select internal IIS intranet site. Just look at the amoutn of issues in the IIS forum about web matrix publishing to IIS on server.

                                        • does not work with windows 7

                                          As Webmatrix will not work in Windows 7, what do you suggest? My old XP machines won't last forever. Is there a replacement for Webmatrix, or am I on my own?
