  1. Manage NuGet Packages

    The NuGet Package Manager should match more of the features and feel of VS for Windows.
    1) I should be able to manage packages for the entire solution and select one or more projects I want to install a package to
    2) I should be able to consolidate any packages that mismatch
    3) I should be able to manage the packages installed on a single project. For instance maybe I am on version 1 of a library, and running update would bring me to version 1.3 and I want version 1.1

    • Add SQL Server integration

      Add SQL Server integration so that it's easier to build end to end mobile and web apps that contain Web API Core and Entity Framework Core.

      • Code formatting settings to match Windows counterpart

        The settings to format code are not as comprehensive as the Windows edition of Visual Studio. If code is edited in both IDEs, source control diffs go out of control because each IDE is trying to format the code differently.
