Create first-class HTML5 UI framework for VS Cordova
This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
There are numerous UI frameworks out there that integrate with Cordova/PhoneGap mobile apps, however, the great majority of them are tailored toward iOS and Android apps. WP/.NET developers do not feel welcome while using these frameworks. I'd like Microsoft to create a UI framework that targets iOS, Android, and WP platforms so .NET developers may create Cordova apps comfortably. At the moment, I'm not sure how WinJS solves this problem. I hope to see UI controls that don't feel like Metro-style widgets but more like WPF/Silverlight controls.
The product team is actively partnering with Ionic to bring first-class support for their excellent framework into Visual Studio.

I whole-heartedly agree. Things like Ionic are nice, but are too dependent on outside tools like CLI's
