  1. new cool nxt/x.net/alice to rename asp.net core

    asp.net 5 has been renamed to asp.net core 1.0, but is not good for google search result, and the new name "asp.net core" is too long and not cool enough to attract new programmers for .net technologies.

    There ars some new cool names suggestion for asp.net core:

    1 nxt (pronounce next, meaning .net vNext, and good for seach engine)
    2 x.net (meaning .net cross platform)
    3 alice (cool name and Alice means the next programming platform in Azure)

        • Division of Content into Basics, Implementation and Purpose.

          You could divide everything about .NET Framework into three parts:
          1. Basics:
          Which would explain concepts in simpler way, so everybody can understand them.
          2. Implementation:
          Which would explain these concepts in detail and show how to implement them.
          3. Purpose:
          Which would describe purpose of these concepts. Real time problems could be discussed here.

          Regards.

          • Work on allowing installations in a user restricted environment

            Visual studio, web express, dblocal (aka SQL express) still require elevated privileged to install and run. It be really nice if these essential tools could be installed without special privileges solely in a user's area.

            • strongly typed asp- attributes

              With the ASP.NET cshtml, we can use @using and @model to get access to strongly typed objects defined in the project.

              It would be nice if the asp- attributes have something similar, where we are able to point to those strongly typed objects and properties.

              Existing Example:
              <form asp-controller="Account" asp-action="Login"
              or
              <label asp-for="Email" class="col-md-2 control-label"></label>
              <div class="col-md-10">
              <input asp-for="Email" class="form-control" />
              <span asp-validation-for="Email" class="text-danger"></span>
              </div>

              Suggested Example:
              <form asp-controller="@Account" asp-action="@Login"

              or

              <label asp-for="@Model.Email" class="col-md-2 control-label"></label>
              <div class="col-md-10">
              <input asp-for="@Model.Email" class="form-control" />
              <span asp-validation-for="@Model.Email" class="text-danger"></span>
              </div>

                  • Host web project in same solution folder

                    I want to flatten folder nesting in ASP.NET. There are legitimate cases for single project solutions. Currently, ASP.NET imposes the web project to a nested folder. Please make it so the csproj file is in the same solution folder. CLI web tooling makes this silly nesting harder to use.

                    • Provide support for tracking concurrent users

                      When working with ASP.NET, there is no easy way to track the number of concurrent users/concurrent sessions that are allowed to log into your application at any given time. Instead, this has to be built as a completely custom solution. Instead, this should be built directly into the ASP.NET Framework to allow easily managing this type of information. This is especially useful for ASP.NET Web Application Licensing scenarios.

                      • Run t4 files on "Build time" natively.

                        In Visual Studio Run t4 files on "Build time" as an option in the file Properties (F4), without using any dependencies. I know that "Tangible T4 Editor" do this with the Pro version.

                        • Enable ASP.Net scaffolding to generate CRUD data based on another class rather than only EF DbContext

                          Today ASP.Net project scaffolding only allow you to select a entity model class + Entity Framework DbContext-based class in order to generate the operations on view and controller.

                          We have a class that we call "Business Layer" that holds the instance of the DbContext EF code-first class. This layer contains all necessary business logic for that specific business domain, including CRUD and validations. We would like to be able to generate scaffold based on this class instead of rather have to point directly to DbContext.

                          Maybe if ASP.Net MVC has an Interface which basic CRUD operations, it would be able…

                            • Add 'Publish Files' context menu item to files in pending changes window

                              In the pending changes window it would be great if I could select the files, right-click and select 'publish files' from the context menu.

                              This would open the publish dialog as normal and I could publish just the files that have changed.

                                Sometimes we will need to extract the raw header value from a HttpRequestMessage or a HttpResponseMessage, and GetHeaderString is the way to do so reliably. Please make this method public.

                                • WebDeploy: Make use of zlib and use compression!!

                                  One by one file copying is a dealbreaker. Please opt for zlib to compress the whole package, push the tarball, untar it on target and post the result back at once. We don't need one by one file transfer status.

                                  At least provide an option for it, if people are dumb enough to realize what they don't need! It takes us MINUTES to publish the dam thing on our staging from other country.

                                  zlib (http://zlib.net/) is used by the whole non-Microsoft world. Node and many other platforms and open software make use of it. It compiles fine on…

                                    • Don't leave IE script debugging enabled after debugging an ASP.NET site

                                      It seems that when debugging an ASP.NET site in IE, Visual Studio automatically turns on IE's script debugging setting.
                                      I assume that this is needed in order for Visual Studio to hook into the JavaScript engine and allow debugging JavaScript in VS.

                                      However, when I am done testing my site, I will be out browsing the web and get constantly interrupted with dialog boxes telling me about errors occurring in the pages I am visiting - pages where these error messages have no meaning to me whatsoever.
                                      Getting rid of these boxes essentially requires two clicks - one to check…

                                        • Make c# computed properties (getter only) get {} syntax optional

                                          for a property like :

                                          public int GetTotal() { get { return Price + Tax; } }

                                          why not something like :

                                          public int GetTotal() { return Price + Tax; }

                                          only for getter only properties.
