  1. Support Medium trust

    It would be nice if Glimpse also supported medium trust environments.

    While developing for medium trust it is wise to develop in medium trust too, due to the many pitfalls one would encounter during deployment to production.

    • Sign the assemblies

      The glimpse assemblies are not signed, and therefore not strongly named.
      In order to be able to use Glimpse in our code, for instance when altering the Security Policy strong named assemblies are required for our signed code.

      • Allow installing extensions through glimpse

        It would be awesome if through the Glimpse UI, I could say that I want, for example, the glimpse-knockout extension to be installed.

          • Display browser info received on server

            It might be useful to have a tab where I can see the actual browser capabilites that the web app is detecting (System.Web.HttpBrowserCapabilities).

            • Allow enabling/disabling tabs/plugins programatically

              It would seem extremely useful to be able to programatically decide on the server what plugins could be enabled/blacklisted during the course of a request being processed.

                  If website uses complex custom model binders, one may want to prevent Glimpse.Mvc3.Plugin.Binders to serialize certain public properties (which cannot be set to internal because are used in views) of the models to json.

                      Hey Adam. To provide an update. This will be going out within the v1 time frame which should be within the next few weeks. So mid November at this point.

                    • Support MVC 4

                      I know MVC 4 hasn't been released yet but my organization is already using the RC and we'd love to have Glimpse support.

                        At the moment we haven’t done any testing on what works or doesn’t. Within the v1 timeframe we plan to make sure we do this testing and have it ready to go out with v1. Thanks for reporting your current experience.

                      • Glimpse should be available one error page (yellow pages)

                        If there is a server error and the defaut .net yellow page is render, glimpse is not available.

                        I don't know if it is possible but it would be nice to have the client side glimpse even on the error pages

                        • More regular updates via NuGet

                          0.87 has been around for a long time now. It would be nice to see some updates available via NuGet, preferably a 1.0 version. For MVC especially, I think this is such a useful tool I would hate to see it wither before it even gets to a full 1.0 release.

                          • The ability to turn Glimpse on and configure a remote name from URL parameters.

                            http://mywebsite/Glimpse.axd?GlimpseState=on&SessionName=iPhone

                            When trying to debug HTML 5 local apps that are "web app capable" and show no address bar, I have to browse to the Glimpse.axd url via a anchor tag link.
                            A separate instance of safari is instantiated and the cookie for that safari instance is not shared by the local app.

                            Consequently, the local app traffic to the server is not tracked.

                            This could also be helpful in remote support cases, just email the user a pre-configured link.

                                        To provide an update. We originally released an Entity Framework specific plugin to help address this issue. Since then, we feel that trying trying to develop a plugin per data access framework doesn’t scale very well. Hence we are investigating what might be possible in this space. More updates to come.

                                        • Show complex model properties like linqpad

                                          In the model binding help docs you said that you didn't show complex model properties because you couldn't figure out a good way to display them.Linqpad works great at showing complex objects.
