How can we improve Breeze.js?

for Linux

I quickly scanned the documentation about installation and found heavy reference to Visual Studio. While I have VS2008 installed on one of my PCs. My day-to-day working machine is a Ubuntu box. Could you show some instruction about using Breeze on a Linux box? Perhaps with Eclipse as the IDE. Or make Breeze available on an online IDE such as JS Fiddle? Thanks.

Simon,

Yes, our initial launch shows Breeze using Visual Studio 2012 with a .NET Entity Framework back-end.

Breeze does not require .NET, but this is currently how we have the data provider hooked up through WebAPI. We are planning to support other back-ends and front-ends, as well as show IDEs other than Visual Studio. Your feedback on UserVoice helps us prioritize these features.

Thanks for the feedback and your interest in Breeze.

    Binding Breeze to some specific IDE under Linux/Unix is not a bad idea but... when you bring this issue to the lower level - I assume it would be better to develop some layers for Java / PHP / Ruby / etc.. My point is - Breeze doesn't really have to be attached to any specific IDE - most important thing is to make it work with other technologies first. I am sure add-ons can be contributed by/with IDEs community afterwards.

    Technology compatibility could be a breakthrough also for Windows users - for those who does not want to work with .NET.

    John, thanks. Based on your reply which I received in my email I suppose I can use Mono Development as the front end to put Breeze into action in a Linux platform? It is supposed Mono permits you to do .NET development thus may support Breeze on the back=end!?
