  • [Ruby] IronRuby Running Unmodified Rails

    I just saw this interesting twitter entry from John Lam:


    I've also seen messages on the IronRuby mailing list like these:

    We're just in a big time crunch before RailsConf so we're pretty well implementing anything that we need to in order to get Rails to run.

    I'm not at the conference - anyone know if they managed to amaze anyone there?

    Update: John just published more information regarding IronRuby and Rails on his blog. Check it out - the IronRuby project is groundbreaking in many ways.

  • OpenID Support for ASP.NET MVC

    I've been monitoring the OpenID progress for a while now, and when I saw this post from Scott Hanselman about how easy it is to add OpenID support for ASP.NET MVC through the use of the DotNetOpenId package, I had to give it a try. It it sure wasn't hard at all.

    If you go to the DotNetOpenId website and download their stuff, you even get sample code for ASP.NET MVC that you can copy/paste from. If you know some OpenID and some ASP.NET MVC it won't take more than a few minutes to get the integration working.

    Cool thing is also that if you get yourself an ID on (which is just one of many OpenID providers), you get Information card/CardSpace support as well! Oh I wish more websites could support this, I don't know how many different accounts and passwords I've created the last years. Thank God for "forgot my password" links... :)
