  1. Public REST API for Visual Studio Marketplace

    It would be great if we have public VS marketplace API to fetch details like
    1. Details of particular extension
    2. Average Rating and Rating count
    3. Installs VSTS or OnPrem
    4. Get all the extensions for the publisher
    5. Get all the extensions of a specific category or tag

    • RSS Feed for extensions gallery

      It would be great to have a RSS feed for the new extensions added to the gallery.
      It might not be related to this repo but I couldn't find a repo for the extension gallery website.

      • Favorites

        Thank you very much for removing the Visual Studio Gallery and replacing it with something that doesn't even half of the functionality. Instead of waiting for the ability to have different Favorite configurations, we now have to ask to just have Favorites. It is extremely obvious that none of you are Microsoft dog-feed the systems at all.

        We need Favorites, multiple while you're at it, so that it is easier to rebuild systems, and/or share configurations with others that you are working with. I think its absolutely ridiculous that you can't even see what you've previously downloaded. Having a site…

        • Markdown rendering of readme.md for vscode extensions

          The markdown renderer for extensions for vscode has a bug when rendering normal text. Single line breaks in the markdown source are rendered with <br/> elements, when this shouldn't be done. Lines should be concatenated until a blank line appears, which starts a new paragraph.

          • There is no link to the profile of the person who submitted the extension

            The submitter's name appears twice on the extension page--at the top, and at the middle right. The top name is a link to a search for that user's other subs. The middle right name isn't a link at all. There is no easy way to get to that user's account from the extension page.

            I sometimes want to see the user's account to determine how legitimate they are. For example, I saw in the RSS feed that someone who appeared to be submitting an extension related to Nintendo development appeared to claim they worked for Microsoft. I couldn't visit their…

            • Provide a way to test new changes in a public extension

              Provide a way to test bugfixes/new features in a sandbox environment for a public extension so that existing extension users don't get impacted.

              • Provide a way for extension owners to be able to contact their extension users

                I have seen few users uninstalling my extension but the reasoning mentioned is not very helpful to further improve the extension or to identify the problem they faced. It would be good to have a feature where as an extension owner I can contact the users (at least the ones who uninstalled it).
