Jekyll regeneration does not stop 

Categories: Visual Studio

Most likely your editor is writing settings to the folder you are running Jekyll from. For example, try running 'jekyll serve' and then open the folder with Visual Studio 2017 and you will see it starts regenerating.

So you are using visual studio to do some jekyll github pages.

Did you save the files as UTF-8 without signature ?

  • File > Advanced Save Options...
  • Tools > Options > Text Editor > General > Auto-detect UTF-8 encoding without signature

No EditorOptionDefinition Export Found Error 

Categories: Visual Studio

I had this error after I crashed a nodejs tools process in visual studio 2013. Apparently removing the component cache folder fixed it.

  • Close visual studio instances
  • Open the folder: %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\12.0\
  • Delete ComponentModelCache folder
  • Start visual studio

This fixed the "No EditorOptionDefinition Export Found" error

Visual Studio 2013, C# 6 and .Net 4.6 

Categories: .Net Visual Studio

These steps are needed to get C# 6 features working in your visual studio 2013.

This seems the only workable way for the moment. I hope Microsoft changes it's mind about support for 2013...
