ASP.NET Core: Watching Code

Being able to edit code and see the changes on the fly is a big advantage when developing applications with all of the "moving parts" in today's tech stack. Simply hitting F5 doesn't cut it anymore. Everything needs to be compiled, minified, uglified, or transpiled to get your app to show up right. On the node.js side of the dev stack I have been using nodemon to watch files for changes and execute whatever functions need to be run and restart the node server for my client apps during development. nodemon ./server.js localhost 8080 Early on in the ASP.NET Core days, beta 3, I creates a nuget package called KMon that used nodemon under the covers to...

ASP.NET Core Needs a Logo

It is not uncommon for developers to adorn their laptops, Macs, Surface Pros, etc with the sticky vinyls of the platforms, tools and frameworks of the stuff we like to use. Unless you have been under a rock, or just too busy to look up, ASP.NET is all new again. It's small, fast, runs cross platform and aims to be on the radar of every new kid coming out of whatever school you name to be the framework of choice. But where's my sticker dude? dotnet is covered pretty well on stickermule.com as Kristan Hellang pointed out on the github issue - https://github.com/aspnet/Home/issues/579. I pointed out in my comment on the issue...


Setting up ASP.NET Core debugging in VS Code

UPDATE: Now Version 1.0 of Visual Studio Released - Same steps apply for Version 1.0. In the most recent ASP.NET Community Standup (http://live.asp.net), Damian walked through the steps of getting RC2 debugging setup inside of Visual Studio Code - Insiders Build. Here are the steps. Install the dotnet SDK for your OS Go to https://github.com/dotnet/cli#installers-and-binaries and select the proper link for your OS in the .NET Core SDK Installer column and install this. As a note, if you have a previous version of this installed you may need to manually remove the dotnet folder from the installation location prior as the installer will not overwrite, and it fails silently....


Kestrel as a Static Server for Angular

Available on github : https://github.com/spboyer/ng2-kestrel-appserver Selecting the server architecture may or may not be a pivotal point in your application design...but it maybe it should. Micro-services, SOA, 12 Factor, ZDD and all of the other buzzwords do in fact have merit, getting away from the monolith application and "putting all of you eggs in one basket" server apps are a think of the past. Right? The core message here is "do one thing and do it well". So why would you couple your dynamic and static content into a single application? Static content doesn't change (often), scaling needs aren't 1:1 with the web api layers. However, there are some needs that the simple use of...
