Support for Visual Studio 11 in Web Workbench 3
Written by Kay Ewbank   
Monday, 19 March 2012

Mindscape has updated Web Workbench, the Visual Studio extension, to add support for Visual Studio 11.

Web Workbench 3 adds the ability to write in Sass, LESS and CoffeeScript within Visual Studio. In addition to the support for Visual Studio 11, the new version adds collapsible outlining for CoffeeScript and performance improvements. Although you could work within Visual Studio 11 using the pre-release version of Web Workbench, you did have to have Visual Studio 2010 installed as well.

Other improvements to the new release include the ability to collapse outlines in CoffeeScript (previously only available for LESS and Sass files), improved IntelliSense behavior in imported files, and IntelliSense recognition of Compass stylesheets.

 

You can make use of Web Workbench for free from the Visual Studio Extensions Manager, and there’s also a Pro version available from Mindscape for $39. The Pro version adds the ability to automatically compile .less files to .css files on save; automatic minifying of the output css files from .less and .scss files; and automatically minifying of the output .js files from .coffee files.

The free edition is available for download from the Microsoft Visual Studio Gallery.
