    • Give Visual Studio users/developers the full power of Visual Studio when developing Asp.Net Core apps

      Developing Asp.Net Core apps with Visual Studio feels like we are working with a simple basic IDE. We can't use Visual Studios full power with Asp.Net Core. I don't know what you are planing for the future, but for now, we are missing a lot of Visual Studios features.

      • Provide a true WYSWYG tool

        The show stopper for web development is GUI. Provide a drag drop feature rich true WYSWYG that plays well with major products. The current functionality is horrible. There are countless examples of such functionality on the web.

        • ConfigureAwait(false) by default

          When you don't need to have full control over your thread pool context while using the async/await pattern, it is recommended that we always use ConfigureAwait(false) for various reasons (see article: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/jj991977.aspx).

          I find that the cases when you need control over the context are very rare.

          I want to suggest that ConfigureAwait(false) is used by default when doing async/await to simplify the coding process.

          • Conditional (if Statement) Operator (?) taking out the : to the Conditional (Ternary) Operator (?:) and transform it into a simple if

            New conditional (Compact if Statement) using Operator (?)
            by taking out the (:) to the Conditional (Ternary) Operator (?:)
            and transform it into a simple more compact if without else.

            Recommend using it only when the resulting statement is extremely short and represents a significant increase in conciseness over the if equivalent without sacrificing readability.

            Code example:

            bool debug = true;

            debug?
            print("Printing in console");

            condition ? statement

            or

            test ? expression1 [ : expression2 ]

              • Proposal: Replace extension methods with true member functions

                Please refrain from providing more and more extension methods and revert to providing proper ASP.NET class methods.

                Due to the currently overwhelming plethora of extension methods added to core classes it's utterly hard to keep track on which functionality actually is available on an object.

                I can't even remember which NuGet packages I need to download because all the extension methods add to ConfigurationBuilder.

                It would make much more sense to add dedicated objects and namespaces with each Nuget package and to provide proper methods on these objects rather than cluttering up the default namespaces with all kinds of extension…

                • Separate thing between Visual Studio Asp.Net developers and VS Code Developers

                  Separate things between Visual Studio and VS Code Asp.Net Core Developers. Don't mix things up in the same documentation how to do things in VS 2015 and VS Code. We VS developers don't want to care how the other developers do stuff, we want to stay in our VS without opening any other tool or anything.

                          update the aspnetcore-spa for angular 2 to include latest angular rc. Also include new forms. May also need some refactoring to move some of the provider work to modules.

                          • Make the ASP.NET WebPages model with Razor a Stand-alone core of DotNet

                            The Webpages model is very mature and easy to use, and it is for these same reasons that PHP is very popular. It would be great if the WebPages model gets to be a different part of the the dotnet core.
                            Web Pages would be freed from the confusion it presently is now, and help to leapfrog the model to popular appeal. And besides, there's nothing that PHP or the others can do that WebPages can't do; and best of all it has the full power of DotNet framework. For instance, while PHP programmers are overjoyed that OOP features had…

                              • Project.json should manage compatibility of packages and do not allow to install incompatible packages.

                                We can install packages in project.json and some time it allow us to install package in system which are not compatible like the current framework do not allow it or somehow we made it then on the runtime we come to know that there is an issue with functionality.
                                There should be some checks which allow to install package or dependency which are compatible.

                                      • Asp.Net Core with database first

                                        It was very easy to work with existing databases in Asp.Net MVC 5, by just adding an Ado.Net Data Entity. Now we don't have this luxury anymore! We must add the models of an existing database by writing commands in the Visual Studio package console, and not having the option to choose with what tables, views, etc from the database we want to work (to get in out projects). Give us this luxury back on visual studio.

                                        • Return the Single Startup and IIS Express Continue Functionality

                                          VS 2015 E Upd 2, seems all web projects in a solution start in IIS Express now regardless of the 'Single startup project' setting. If the selected 'Single startup project' is a web app it gets stopped in IIS Express when debugging session is over and others continue to run.

                                          I have always relied on having my IIS Express web site to run after a code debugging session so that I can say test an API via PostMan or view\test site in others browsers. I don't need all web app starting up to waste resources.

                                          Can we bring back (fix)…
