C# XUnit Protractor Angular JS Testing

Protractor is an end-to-end test framework for AngularJS. The official version is built on Node.js and Selenium WebDriverJS. Protractor.NET, a .NET port of Protractor built on top of Selenium WebDriver for .NET. It allows us to write Angular UI tests using .NET testing frameworks such as NUnit, MSTest or XUnit. This post is about writing End to End tests for angular app with XUnit and Protractor.Net. Unlike WebDriver, Protractor understands Angular digest cycle and blocks until the digest cycle has finished, which helps us to write better test code. As I want to test my ASP.NET Core application, I choose XUnit, instead of NUnit or MS Test. Here is my project.json. Protractor is not available for DNX Core, so I had to remove that reference.

Visual Studio nuget Klondike

NuGet is a free and open-source package manager designed for the Microsoft development platform (formerly known as NuPack). Nuget is a great way to share packages in between teams. This post is about setting up your own nuget server for your company or team. This post is using Klondike, which is web application, instead of building my own using nuget.server package. Klondike is an web application you deploy to your own web server or to the cloud that works as a private NuGet package feed for storing private packages your organization creates. Klondike can also automatically restore packages sourced from 3rd party feeds, such as the public feed, to keep your build server humming even when is unavailable.

Content negotiation in ASPNET Core

Posted by Anuraj on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 Reading time :1 minute


Content negotiation as “the process of selecting the best representation for a given response when there are multiple representations available”. Content negotiation takes place when browser or other HTTP-client requests server what content formats it accepts. HTTP-client uses Accept header to list all formats it can understand. By default ASP.NET Core returns responses as JSON, even if the client sends accept header with application/xml value.
