.NET Core Tutorial: Using the ServiceCollection Extension Pattern II: Pass options using the Options Pattern
In a previous post I demonstrated how to use to ServiceCollection Extension Pattern and how this prevents a bloated ConfigureServices() pipeline. In this follow up you will learn how to pass additional information to your implementation. Consider the following extension method that adds your project containing some services: As seen in the previous post, we
If you have worked on applications (in .NET Core) you should know how Dependency Injection (DI) is supported and is applied for your services. This is straight forward and not so hard at all. Just add them to the IServiceCollection in the ConfigureServices() pipeline in the startup.cs file. Considering a N-Tier architrecture, where our Startup.cs

I created a Visual Studio extension called T4Editor that adds colors to different blocks in you code. You can
When working with T4 templates in Visual Studio, you have to manually execute the custom for it to trigger the code generation. I used AutoT4 in the past (a VS2012 extension) to execute template on build time but this extension is not supported in the latest version(s) of Visual Studio. T4Executer is open for contributions
This is not so hard to do actually. It ensures your transformations are executed when you build your solution, when in some cases you did not click ‘Build > Transform all T4 Templates’ when changes are made to your .tt files. If one of your projects uses T4 to generate code, and you want it
Introduction T4 stands for Text Template Transformation Toolkit. When you scaffold a controller or view in ASP.NET, in the background T4 Templates that contain those structures are executed and files are generated for you. In this article I will explain how you can generate classes yourself, based on simple definitions in a text file. This
