  1. Web Deploy - Speed up FTP deployment

    When deploying a website using FTP it's very slow compared to other FTP applications. Web Deploy should be using more than 1 connection while uploading files. Bonus points for being able to retry uploading a previously failed file.

    • Add a RenderEditorFor helper for performance

      ASP.NET MVC's HTML Helper has both "RenderPartial" and "Partial" - the difference being RenderPartial will write directly to the output stream, but Partial will render to a string, which is then usually written to the output stream.

      ASP.NET MVC also has the handy EditorFor helper which does some templating magic for form fields, however it renders to a string - there is no "RenderEditorFor" which would also write directly to the output stream for increased performance.

      I could reimplement my own helper which does this, but I'd like to see an official implementation.

      • It would be awesome if you had a Gallery for websites built using MVC!

        It would be great if you had a gallery of websites built using MVC so people could see the power of this great tool.

        • Allow control of the font when entering text (e.g. Task Description, History) on Visual Studio Online

          When entering text (e.g. Task Description, History) on Visual Studio Online, you have no control of the font. As you copy and paste text from emails, VS or other apps, the source font is preserved. There is no obvious way to change or reset the font. It can make the result hard to read.

          • Rename ASP.NET core

            ASP.NET core need a rename. it is giving me a headache trying to find resources that is ASP.NET core and not ASP.NET, annoying. the best name is the one that when searched for (at the moment) in any search engine gives zero results or near zero results,thus unique.

            • Refactoring for local URLs in hyperlinks

              VS seems to be the only web site IDE that doesn't refactor HREF links to local pages, when those pages are moved or renamed. I understand this might only be possible for non-server rendered controls or static HTML pages, but why completely ignore the other scenarios? I create thousands of pages of documentation in static HTML for compiled HTML help (CHM files) and am forced to use Dreamweaver.

              • RemoveOutputCache

                Allow RemoveOutputCache to provide a key, such as VaryByCustom or VaryByHeader strings. SaaS vendors that use subdomains for each tenant, but then also need to cache pages by parameters (URLs, Routes, querystrings, etc.) have no easy way to use page output caching.

                • Razor: self containing attributes in htmlAttributes

                  When applying schema.org there are a lot of self containing attributes (attributes without a value).

                  for example:

                  <li itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/ListItem">

                  Now you have to define htmlattributes like this and add an empty string for value:
                  new { @itemprop = "itemListElement", @itemscope = "", @itemtype = "http://schema.org/ListItem&quot; }

                  might be an area to improve...

                  • Angular 2 - Update to rc5, and include the @angular/forms (0.3.0)

                    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.

                      • 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…

                          • dbgeography better support

                            Support of DBGeography is limited to EF. I tryed to use SQLDatasource and some of classic ASP.NET Webform Data controls and it seems that asp.Parameter have no fitting type. Also direct casting in inserting Event doesnt work. As I have seen also on other places there is *no* Support for the datatype which have been introduced with SQL 2008. As example sql2linq.
                            The point is, to prevent a complete new implementation only for reason to add one db field

                              • Is it possible that we have Asp.Net 4 on the client side.

                                Is it possible that we have Asp.Net 4 on the client side. I mean we have Web Api for services, And import our services into the client project like this: ControllerName.ServiceName, and then use them in the client side "Code Behind" and also we have client side markup and controls similar to GridView, ObjectDataSource, MasterPages, UserControls, RequiredFieldValidator, etc. and when a PostBack occures all of the page "LifeCycle" happens on the client with an event driven structure and with events like:
                                Load > Load ViewState(previous page state) > Form Post Data > Validation > Change Events > Click Events >…

                                • Instructions for installing .NET Core from the command line

                                  On the page https://www.microsoft.com/net/core#windowscmd, step 2 mentions the following:
                                  mkdir hwapp
                                  cd hwapp
                                  dotnet new

                                  In which folder shall these commands be executed? Calling dotnet gives the following error:

                                  'dotnet' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
                                  operable program or batch file.

                                  Please provide exact instructions, of how to install .net core.

                                        • make asp.net core more stable

                                          I downloaded latest version of everything today, also a getstarted-master project only a few months old and the dotnet restore command does not work. I probably can go back to older version and try to make this work, there is also a tutorial on MVA , just a few months old and also that seems outdated somewhat already. How can you expect people to get familiar and enthusiastic about this platform if these simple things break because of changes to product in such a short time.
