  1. ASP.NET Identity membership DB Tool to mangage users, roles needed

    A simple user interface tool is needed to create and manage Users and Roles with ASP.NET Identity.

    • Built in ability to transform any config similar to what SlowCheetah already does.

      Currently if you want to transform any config file other than a web.config you need to use an external package called SlowCheetah, while SlowCheetah works well, currently there is a bug that causes us issues when building on a CI server. I'd like to see built in support for transformation of all config files, not just web.config files.

      • Remove SignalR's dependency on jQuery

        jQuery is great and all, but with a growing acceptance of two way binding from KnockoutJs, AngularJs, etc, sometimes it is just an overhead to add jQuery in order to use SignalR. Moreover, this brings a lot of problems when using ExtJs or other pure javascript UI libraries.

          • Option for sub applications to opt-out of web.config inheritance from parent application

            Let's say I have rootapp, a web application at the root of my IIS website, and another web application under it named subapp. These two applications have nothing to do with one another, have their own app pool, etc., but just happen to exist in the same IIS website with one under the other.

            Currently subapp will inherit web.config settings from rootapp. In some cases the subapp's web.config can conflict with that in the rootapp, and I have to do some fancy footwork to overcome issues. I also have to be mindful and remind my co-workers to be mindful that…

              • Allow Asp.net VS 2013 Projects to use IIS and IIS Express

                It is annoying when I have the server configured to use IIS, but my local machine uses IIS Express, and I can't switch between the two easily.

                Instead of that annoying error message you shown now, how about a 'Choose Web Server' dialog, and allow me to use whatever options are available in the local environment.

                • Paging, Sorting and Search in Scaffolding

                  It would be great to use Scaffolding in order to create complete pages, like ASP.NET Dynamic Data sites, that include paging, sorting and search.

                    • Zurb Foundation as a template option when creating new ASP.NET project

                      For One ASP.net, give us an option to select from known layout frameworks besides Twitter Bootstrap. One of the most popular is Zurb Foundation.

                      Nice thing to do is to give us a choice to pick from the popular frameworks (Twitter Bootstrap, Zurb Foundation, HTML5Boilerplate & more) when creating new ASP.NET project.

                      • Speed up the aspnet_compiler.

                        The aspnet_compiler is slow to precompile web pages. We have a high end build server and the aspnet_compiler.exe runs and hardly uses in CPU or RAM.

                        Is there anything that can be done to speed up precompilation as it accounts for 50% of our total build time.

                        • Open Source the Web Platform Installer (or create an empty extensible shell)

                          It would be great to (re)use the WebPI as an install configuration tool. Yes, it supports custom feeds, but how about if it were available empty and unbranded (or brandable)?

                                    • Make WebDeploy CRC check more efficient

                                      Now when we have MSDeployUseChecksum it works great in terms of precision but slow in terms of performance. This is a problem for a larger websites because it takes up to 4, 10, ... minutes to calculate the checksums.

                                      Here is the idea: combine time stamp checks with CRC.

                                      Algorithm: do a time stamp check first. Then do a CRC check for all found differences.

                                      This will improve performance for some frequent scenarios while keeping the precision.

                                      • Provide easy way to ensure Internet Explorer NEVER goes into compatibility mode for a site irrespective of whether it is an intranet site

                                        I would like to prevent Internet Explorer from ever going into compatibility mode irrespective of whether it is an intranet site or any other crazy rules IE might use. It just gives us a whole other set of testing to do and introduces bugs.

                                        We have tried the X-UA-Compatible meta tag as described in this article to no avail http://tesmond.blogspot.co.uk/2011/10/ie9-intranet-compatibility-mode-in.html.

                                        We have also tried the following in web.config:
                                        <system.webServer>
                                        <httpProtocol>
                                        <customHeaders>
                                        <add name="X-UA-Compatible" value="IE=edge" />
                                        </customHeaders>
                                        </httpProtocol>
                                        </system.webServer>

                                        And also emitting X-UA-Compatible in the headers i.e. this.Response.AddHeader("X-UA-Compatible", "IE=edge;");

                                        See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13284083/ie10-renders-in-ie7-mode-how-to-force-standards-mode for further details.

                                        None of them work!

                                        We cannot…
