T4 editing

T4 is no longer just a tool used internally by VS, but is being increasingly used by developers for code generation. It would be great to have syntax highlighting, intellisense etc. out of the box.

I appreciate this is probably more of a Visual Studio feature request than an ASP.NET one, but as T4 is used a lot within ASP.NET projects, particularly MVC ones, I figure it's worth a mention.

    If you haven’t discovered it yet, you’ll be pleased to know that Devart have a great T4 editor with support for Visual Studio 2015 (and previous versions): https://www.devart.com/t4-editor/download.html. We’re closing this suggestion based on low recent interest and the existence of a free community alternative as well as alternative technologies (http://daveaglick.com/posts/announcing-scripty), so that newer community suggestions have the chance to receive appropriate consideration.

    Best wishes, Tim Sneath | Visual Studio Team
