  1. Support TypeScript 0.9.5

    The latest release of the TypeScript compiler does not compile the TypeScript definition file (breeze.d.ts). The compile rules have been tightened to not allow duplicate overload signatures. This affects the EntityQuery.using(...) and QueryOptions.using(...) overloaded method declarations.

  3. inlineCount API twice in the documentation

    I believe the second one was supposed to actually say 'noTracking'.

  4. Create minimal NuGet packages for server and client

    I have my WebAPI project separate from my web client. It would be nice to have a NuGet package that only installs the server-side DLLs and dependencies and a separate NuGet package that only installs the client JS.

  6. Documentation mentions "EntityManager.acceptChanges" and "rejectChanges" method, but those methods don't exist

    This page:
    http://www.breezejs.com/documentation/entitymanager-and-caching

    Says that EntityManager has the methods acceptChanges and rejectChanges, but they don't appear to exist in code.

    They sure sound useful though. ;)

  7. Allow resizing on iPads and phones

    I won't be back because I don't read websites that override my requirement to be able to resize. I simply can't read it.

  8. Object as parameter

    It would be really useful to have the option to send object as parameter to method of Breeze controller using the withParameters() method.

  9. adding ANY and ALL filter operators

    It would be nice to filter on the properties of 1-n related enities. [Even if it is a collection of entites and not a single (1-1 related) entity.]

    With my suggestion it would be possible to execute the following queries:

    •find all movies starring a particular actor
    •find all orders where at least one of the order-lines is for a particular product
    •find all orders where every order-line has a value greater than $400
    •find all movies tagged 'quirky' - where Tags is a multi-valued property.
    •find all movies with a least one actor tagged as a favorite

    It would…

  10. Decouple Breeze from Entity Framework

    I like what Breeze does but I need it to work for a hand rolled ORM or NHibernate or any other ORM.

    I would also like it to be able to cope with classes that don't have navigation properties in them. NHibernate does not force you to pollute your business entities with foreign keys to allow it to work. Breeze needs to be able to deal with this.

    Thanks

  11. Create a backend connector for rails and activerecord

    I need a connector with example for ruby on rails with activerecord. You've mentioned supporting it before, but I have yet to see any further information. I'm willing to help out but I need some direction. Thanks, Ben

  12. Support TypeScript 0.9

    The TypeScript Definition File (d.ts) that is being distributed likely needs to be updated to support the new features in the recently release TypeScript 0.9 (like Generics support). For those wanting to upgrade to the latest TypeScript, it would be difficult without this.

  13. fix support of oData math functions

    I attempted to use the oData add math function like this:

    .where("ColA add COlB", breeze.FilterQueryOp.GreaterThan, 5)

    when the query was sent to the server, it converted the numeric value 5 to string '5' and the server responded with an invalid type error:
    http://...MyEntity/?Filter(ColA add ColB gt '5')

    the correct uri should be:
    http://...MyEntity/?Filter(ColA add ColB gt 5)

    If I manually changed the uri to the above format, the server accepts the format and responds correctly.

    It appears that somehow the breeze client is interpreting the add expression as a string and forces the 5 into a string. My suggestion is…

  16. Keep up the good work!

    The in depth tour through MS MVC4 Angular/Breeze SPA project template was incredibly helpful to give me a clear, compelling view of what all this SPA stuff is about and how to avoid the rats nest of tightly coupled code involved with manipulating the DOM, etc.

    To be clear, I'm talking about this http://www.breezejs.com/ng-spa-template?utm_source=ms-spa.

    Thanks

  17. There should be an AfterSaveEntity

    Why isn't there also an AfterSaveEntity.
    For example would be very useful for sending notifications (emails, messages) once a bigger operation is done.
    Also everything should be done inside a transaction, so that if something crashes it should automatically Rollback

  19. Support executing arbitrary stored procedures within the transaction scope SaveChanges

    Support executing arbitrary stored procedures within the transaction scope SaveChanges

    [Or] allow some way of tying in to the transaction scope for any SQL

  20. Seperate out EFContextProvider

    I would like to start out by saying nice job on breeze. You guys have a breeze mvc webapi dll for those people doing .net. I really like the EFContextProvider, but I think it would be cool if it was a seperate project. This would allow users to use it in different class libraries to create repositories and a unit of work for the different models that you create and have one place to manage it. Keep it breezy, thanks
