Create API with ASP.NET Core (Day2): Creating API in ASP.NET Core


Introduction

This article of the series “Web API with ASP.NET Core” will focus on creating Web API with ASP.NET Core. In the last article of the series, we learned about ASP.NET Core basics and how to set up an empty solution and play with request pipeline and middleware. In this article, we’ll discuss less theory and try to create an API. We’ll make use of ASP.NET Core MVC Middleware to build the API. We’ll cover in details on how to return resources, data and how to talk to API via HTTP request in this article. We can use the same source code as we got at the completion of last article of the series.

Visual Studio Extensibility (Day 3): Visual Studio extension in Visual Studio Isolated Shell

In this article, I’ll explain how one can customize the basic VisualStudio Isolated shell application and add a custom extension to the shellapplication.


Introduction

This article is in continuation of “Creating your first visual studio VSIX package” article of the series Visual Studio Extensibility. The first part focused on creating a Visual Studio Extension to locate a file or folder in Windows Explorer, the second part was more about deploying the Visual Studio extension to staging server via continuous integration. This article will illustrate how to add or embed the visual studio extension or visual studio package into a Visual Studio Isolated Shell application. Visual Studio provides the flexibility to create our own IDE or a Visual Studio kind of product altogether having custom extensions or some pre-defined functionalities of visual studio. Therefore one can get their custom Visual Studio as a product which could be sold in the market.

Visual Studio Extensibility (Day 1): Creating your first Visual Studio VSIX package

In this three article series of Visual Studio Extensibility we’ll learn how to create a new Visual Studio package, deploy that on staging server and GIT via continuous integration setup and at the end create a Visual Studio isolated Shell application with that embedded package. Although this is very rare topic and you could not find enough study material on this topic over the web that explains how to work with it step by step. MSDN contains good content but very generic, and to the point. In my article I’ll try to explain each and every small part step by step, so that one can learn while coding.


 

Introduction

Visual Studio Extensibility features are not new in .NET. It’s just that they are not very commonly used which to me is a surprise because Visual Studio extensibility features are so powerful they give a new definition to customization.
