  1. Add Mask to zValidate Breeze/AngularJS validation directive

    zValidate is the best practice for validate view and model with AngularJs and if this directive will have mask property It will be cool.

  2. Enable Breeze to run in Web Worker thread

    Probably difficult to do at this stage, but it would be interesting to find a way to have breezejs run in a web worker...although maybe there's not enough of a performance benefit.

  3. Create a complete tutorial for beginners, from scratch to publishing the app on google/apple stores - and hosting the database -

    As a full beginner, I find difficult to understand all of the steps. Am I alone in that case ?
    The BMEAN project would just need further informations concerning what I have to do after all of the code !
    - forgive my english -

  4. Provide a simple example demonstrating use of BreezeJS+Mongodb

    The only example I can find demonstrating BreezeJS and Mongodb with enough information to replicate it is the Zza project. This has some configuration and launch issues anyway, but is also a million miles from being a minimal application.

    None of the Todo-style apps, which would be perfect tutorials, have a description of how to set up a Node+Mongodb back end and are universally reliant on Visual Studio, meaning Mac and Linux developers can't use the library. The live tutorial apps have no description of how to set up a suitable HTML or database at all, let alone for Node+Mongodb.

  7. Support for MongoDB in ASP.NET Web API

    I'd like to use MongoDB with ASP.NET Web API. This would require translation of OData queries to MongoDB query syntax in C#, using the MongoDB C# driver.

  9. Conditional transactions when saving changes

    When executing SaveChanges on the server, sometimes you don't know until BeforeSaveEntity or BeforeSaveEntities whether a transaction is required. Rather than requiring transaction settings to be specified before calling EFContextProvider<T>.SaveChanges, allow creating a transaction at any time during the BeforeSaveEntity(ies) methods.

  11. Fully support Helios - Remove the reliance on System.Web

    Right now server side breeze "Breeze.Server.WebApi2" relies on WebActivator which relies on sytem.web.

    Here is a link to what Helios is. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/webdev/archive/2014/02/18/introducing-asp-net-project-helios.aspx

  12. Breeze offline docs

    Please, make it possible to run breeze documentation locally like angularjs provides https://code.angularjs.org/1.2.16/angular-1.2.16.zip

    Or think about devdocs.io, would be great see breeze docs there

    It is annoying to wait half a minute to walk through the online docs every time I need them

  14. Validation integration with the FluentValidation framework.

    DataAnnotation is outdated and fills the POCO with dirt. FluentValidation support would be a great addition.

  19. Automatically remove from cache items that were deleted by someone else if an Expand clause did not return it

    When multiple users play with similar data and one of the navigation property (to a list of children for example) has hard deletable items, it is possible for one user to load all the children in cache, then for another to delete those children. Then, for user 1, even if he refetches the parent objects with an expand clause to the children, Breeze will currently reattach even those children that were not returned from the server - the deleted ones. There is no easy way currently out of manually clearing the cache or querying directly for each child to check…

  20. Switch to Bluebird promises

    Bluebird promises are orders of magnitude faster than Q promises, they're more modern and they provide a more consistent API for now.

    Switching to them should show improvements in speed as well as debuggability (better long stack traces for example).
