It would be nice if you embraced and baked in support for Grunt, Yeoman and Bower in Visual Studio (tooling).A node.js command window would also be great. (e.g. something like the NuGet Package Manager window etc.)
Visual Studio 2015 now has built-in support for Bower, npm, Grunt and Gulp including Intellisense, package dependency handling and a Task Runner Explorer.

We need Yeoman too.
What about Yeoman? VS2015 will support it?

I completely agree! I much prefer using bower for managing my client-side packages over NuGet, and grunt is one of the most indespensible tools in my workflow. It would be really nice to get some tooling around those baked in.
Yeoman is really great too, but i can understand the struggle with integrating it gracefully into the VS workflow. It essentially executes project templates, which would be somewhat redundant for VS, though i do like using it for certain types of applications. If MS were to commit to a Yeoman workflow and produce templates for it, make it easy to generate a yeoman template from a project/solution, etc. then i could see the benefit, but i don't see that happening anytime soon. Might be a nice extension for someone to build.
For the node tools, check out the node.js tools for visual studio.
