Integrating Twitter with your ASP.NET MVC 3 and Razor Web Application

Much has been talked about the new release of ASP.NET MVC, i.e. MVC 3 and the new Razor syntax and the ability to simplify the development. Razor uses the @ prefix for switching between code and HTML and that kind of simplifies it when compared to using <%: symbol as with the case in MVC and ASPX engines. Here is a nice article from David Ebbo on how all of these fit together Not just that, Razor comes with a lot of goodies. The Helper classes simplify in doing some of the common tasks, doing common scenarios like integrating Twitter, Facebook or PayPal into your applications. To begin with, am using the following 1. Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1. You can install it from Download details- Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 2...

Orchard list customization: first item template

I got this question more than once: "how can you use a different template for the first blog post?" The scenario is illustrated by this example: If you look at the default rendering for the list of posts in a blog, you'll see this: < ul class ="blog-posts content-items" > < li class ="first" > < article class ="content-item blog-post" > < header >... .csharpcode, .csharpcode pre { font-size: small; color: black; font-family: consolas, "Courier New", courier, monospace; background-color: #ffffff; /*white-space: pre;*/ } .csharpcode pre { margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .rem { color: #008000; } .csharpcode .kwrd { color: #0000ff; } .csharpcode .str { color: #006080; } .csharpcode...

NuGet Package of the Week #7 - ELMAH (Error Logging Modules and Handlers) with SQL Server Compact

Hey, have you implemented the NuGet Action Plan ? Get on it, it'll take only 5 minutes: NuGet Action Plan - Upgrade to 1.3, Setup Automatic Updates, Get NuGet Package Explorer . NuGet 1.3 is out, so make sure you're set to automatically update! The Backstory: I was thinking since the NuGet .NET package management site is starting to fill up that I should start looking for gems (no pun intended) in there. You know, really useful stuff that folks might otherwise not find. I'll look for mostly open source projects, ones I think are really useful. I'll look at how they built their NuGet packages, if there's anything interesting about the way the designed the out of the box experience (and anything they could do to make it better...

Install the Ajax Control Toolkit from NuGet

The Ajax Control Toolkit is now available from NuGet. This makes it super easy to add the latest version of the Ajax Control Toolkit to any Web Forms application. If you haven’t used NuGet yet, then you are missing out on a great tool which you can use with Visual Studio to add new features to an application. You can use NuGet with both ASP.NET MVC and ASP.NET Web Forms applications. NuGet is compatible with both Websites and Web Applications and it works with both C# and VB.NET applications. For example, I habitually use NuGet to add the latest version of ELMAH, Entity Framework, jQuery, jQuery UI, and jQuery Templates to applications that I create. To download NuGet, visit the NuGet website at: http://NuGet.org Imagine, for example, that you...

An Obsessive Compulsive Guide To Source Code Formatting

Most developers I know are pretty anal about the formatting of their source code. I used to think I was pretty obsessive compulsive about it, but then I joined Microsoft and faced a whole new level of OCD ( Obsessive Compulsive Disorder ). For example, many require all using statements to be sorted and unused statements to be removed, which was something I never cared much about in the past. There’s no shortcut that I know of for removing unused using statements. Simply right click in the editor and select Organize Usings > Remove and Sort in the context menu. In Visual Studio, you can specify how you want code formatted by launching the Options dialog via Tools > Options and then select the Text Editor node. Look under the language you...
