Sending Email in Razor Pages

20 July 2017 07:24

ASP.NET Core Razor Pages

The Razor Pages framework is not the only thing to be introduced as part of .NET Core 2.0. A lot more of the existing full framework class libraries are also being ported across to .NET Core including System.Net.Mail. That means there is no longer any need to rely on third party libraries or services for email functionality in your .NET Core applications. So I thought I'd take the opportunity to illustrate sending email in a Razor Pages application.

Routing in Razor Pages

11 July 2017 13:28

ASP.NET Core Razor Pages

One of the top level design considerations for the developers of a server-side web application framework is how to match URLs to resources on the server so that the correct one processes the request. The most straightforward approach is to map URLs to physical files on disk, and this is the approach that has been implemented by the ASP.NET team for the Razor Pages framework.

ASP.NET Core Razor Pages

Handler methods is a particularly nice feature introduced with the new ASP.NET Razor Pages framework . This feature enables you to determine what the user was doing when they requested the page, and to execute logic accordingly without having to resort to a bunch of conditional code.

Razor Pages - Getting Started With The Preview

15 May 2017 20:52

Razor ASP.NET Core Razor Pages

Current users of ASP.NET Web Pages have been eagerly awaiting news on what ASP.NET Core holds for them (if my inbox is anything to go by). The roadmap suggested that a new version of Web Pages would be forthcoming after the initial release of .NET Core, but that item was subsequently removed. Instead, a new cross platform page-centric web development model called Razor Pages has been made available in preview form. Here, I show you how to get started with it and explore its similarities with Web Pages. In future articles, I will take a closer look at the wide range of differences.

Free SSL Certificates On IIS With LetsEncrypt

02 February 2017 07:44

ASP.NET MVC ASP.NET Web Forms ASP.NET Core

If you have forms on your site that take a user's personal details, you should protect the page by running it under HTTPS. That way, any data that's posted from the form (email address, credit card number etc) is encrypted and hidden from prying eyes. It's not just e-commerce sites that should be protected. Intranets and other line of business apps that require authentication, blogs with comment forms that ask for email addresses and so on. The main barrier to this in the past has been the cost of the digital certificate (SSL Certificate) that asserts that you are who you say you are. LetsEncrypt is a free, automated, and open Certificate Authority that removes this barrier.

Entity Framework ASP.NET Core

Entity Framework Core is the new lightweight version of Entity Framework designed to work with .NET Core applications. Just like ASP.NET Core, it has been rewritten from the ground up, and includes some new ways of doing things. One of those is the introduction of the TrackGraph method for handling complex data in disconnected scenarios such as MVC or Web API applications.

Loading ASP.NET Core MVC Views From A Database Or Other Location

21 July 2016 08:56

ASP.NET MVC ASP.NET Core

For the vast majority of ASP.NET Core MVC applications, the conventional method of locating and loading views from the file system does the job nicely. But you can also load views from other sources including a database. This is useful in scenarios where you want to give users the option to craft or modify Razor files but don't want to give them access to the file system. This article looks at the work required to create a component to obtain views from other sources, using the database as a working example.

ASP.NET MVC ASP.NET Web Pages ASP.NET Core Razor Pages

Now that the RTM of ASP.NET Core has shipped, the ASP.NET team are looking at the features that were left behind including SignalR and Web Pages.

Recently, the ASP.NET Team provided an update on GitHub on the goals driving the next version of Web Pages which provides an interesting insight into the potential features of the framework.
