EFCore .NET Core Migrations

Recently I started working on Dictionary Web API, which converts English to Malayalam(my native language). I am able to find out the word definitions database as CSV, by running Import Data wizard in SQL Server, I created a SQL Server database with definitions. The definitions table is a contains thousands of rows, so I don’t want to create it and insert the data, instead I want to use Database first approach for creating the entity. So here is the command to which build DBContext and POCO classes using existing database.

Code coverage in .NET Core with Coverlet

.NET Core CodeCoverage Coverlet

Few days back I wrote a post about code coverage in ASP.NET Core. In that post I was using Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise, which doesn’t support Linux or Mac and it is costly. Later I found one alternative, Coverlet - Coverlet is a cross platform code coverage library for .NET Core, with support for line, branch and method coverage. Coverlet integrates with the MSBuild system, so it doesn’t require any additional setup other than including the NuGet package in the unit test project. It integrates with the dotnet test infrastructure built into the .NET Core CLI and when enabled, will automatically generate coverage results after tests are run.

ASP.NET Core LibMan

This post is about Working with Microsoft Library Manager for ASP.NET Core. Recently ASP.NET Team posted a blog - about bower deprecation. And in there they mentioned about a new tool called Library Manager - Library Manager (“LibMan” for short) is Visual Studio’s experimental client-side library acquisition tool. It provides a lightweight, simple mechanism that helps users find and fetch library files from an external source (such as CDNJS) and place them in your project. LibMan is not a package management system. If you’re using npm / yarn / (or something else), you can continue use it. LibMan was not developed as a replacement for these tools.

How to reuse HTML snippets inside a Razor view in ASP.NET Core

ASP.NET Core Razor

This post is a small tip about reusing HTML snippets inside a Razor view in ASP.NET Core. In earlier versions of ASP.NET MVC this could be achieved with the help of helper - A helper is a reusable component that includes code and markup to perform a task that might be tedious or complex. But there is no equivalent implementation is available in ASP.NET Core MVC. In this post I am explaining how we can achieve similar functionality in ASP.NET Core. Unlike ASP.NET MVC, this implementation, you can’t use it in multiple page. This is very helpful if you want to do some complex logic in view.
