´╗┐Sass Stylesheets in ASP.NET MVC Applications and Visual Studio!!!!!!!!!!

Posted on Updated on


When you’re using a CSS pre-processor to write your stylesheets, you need to compile those files at some point of time. After all, browsers only understand plain CSS and know nothing about Less or Sass.
There are three conceptually different approaches for compiling a stylesheet with a CSS pre-processor:
Dynamically compile the stylesheet on the server when the file is requested.
Deliver raw stylesheets to the browser and compile those using JavaScript.
Compile the stylesheets to static CSS files right after updating and saving them.
I’ve chosen option #3 for my Sass stylesheets because this approach works nicely with bundling and minification and doesn’t require any JavaScript execution in the browser.

Client-Side Web Development in Visual Studio 2015!!!!!!!!!!

Posted on Updated on

ASP.NET 5 is a lean .NET stack for building modern web apps. Built it from the ground up to provide an optimized development framework for apps that are either deployed to the cloud or run on-premises. In modern web app development, there are lots of moving parts: Server-side code (such as ASP.NET), client-side libraries, and complex tool chains. A typical web app might incorporate LESS, CoffeeScript, or TypeScript. JavaScript files are bundled and minified.
Visual Studio 2015, you can:
Easily manage client-side packages like jQuery, Bootstrap, or Angular.
Automatically run build tasks such as LESS compilation, JavaScript minification, JSLint, or JavaScript unit tests.
Take advantage of a rich ecosystem of tools created by the web development community.

ASP vNext Dependency Injection Lifecycles!!!!!!!!

Posted on

ASP.NET has seen an evolution when it comes to dependency injection.With ASP vNext we see an out of the box inversion of control container that works.
The services for Entity Framework, ASP.NET Identity, and MVC. In addition to using extension methods, you can register services one at a time. Before you register a service, it is important to understand the Lifecycles offered by ASP.NET MVC out of the box.

It is important to know how your objects will hang around when created by an IoC container, the first step is understanding the Lifecycles available to you. Clearly the implementation of extension methods as registration tools is a big part of the ASP vNext style, so I suggest you start getting comfortable with the pattern.
