Need a Refresh Button in Solution Explorer Toolbar

May 15, 2014 at 6:30 PM
Sometimes when I install a package with npm, the contents of the package will not show up in Solution Explorer. With no way to refresh a folder, I have to close the solution and then re-open it for the contents to show up.

I'm using VS 2013 with Update 2 RTM, and Node.js Tools Version 1.0. I haven't been able to reproduce this behavior with any specific packages. It just happens randomly.

I think part of my problem was due to the ridiculously long file names created by npm, which was messing up OneDrive because they exceeded the 256 character limit.

Another problem that I noticed is that an exception is thrown every time I edit some of the newer file types supported by VS, like JSON and LESS files.
