This weekend I did talk on SOLID at the Knowit Developer Summit 2014 in Stockholm. These five principles are well known to most ASP.NET developers, but it can be difficult to be aware of them in the day-to-day.
Some of the time they are applied instinctively. You just make the code “feel right”. To illuminate the situations where SOLID might be applicable, I demonstrated the principles by refactoring an ASP.NET solution on stage.
And just to make it even more difficult for myself, I did it in:
I was asked to give a little bit of info on the tools I used, and how to get up-and-running. The following will be a simple guide.
Presupposing some knowledge of what vNext is (if not read this introduction), let’s soldier on!
One of the many good things about ASP.NET vNext, is that Microsoft are using Github! There you’ll find the Home repository which has samples and an install guide.
For OS X I’ll reprint the install guide here, it’s quite straightforward.
brew tap aspnet/kto tap the ASP.NET vNext related git repositories. If you had already tapped the repo for previous releases, run
brew untap aspnet/kto delete the old commands and tap again to get the updated brew scripts.
brew install kvmto install KVM. This also automatically install the latest KRE package from https://www.myget.org/f/aspnetmaster/api/v2 feed.
source kvm.shon your terminal if your terminal cannot understand kvm.
I’d recommend putting
source kvm.sh in your ~/.bash_profile as well. Now you have the latest ASP.NET version installed!
Next you’ll have to install Sublime Text 3 if you don’t already have it. We can install two helpful extensions in Sublime Text 3 to make our life easier.
To do this you need the Package Control, see the link for instructions. Afterwards do the following steps in Sublime Text to install the extensions:
Package Control: Install Package.
Kulturewhen the list appears.
Then do it again, but on the third step select
These two excellent extensions gives you a much richer experience with developing ASP.NET in Sublime Text.
kpm restorein Sublime Text.
Next I would recommend and cloning the Home repository from the ASP.NET-team, and play around with the samples:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:aspnet/Home.git
The makers of the Kulture-extension also have a yeoman generator to get the ball rolling:
npm install -g yo npm install -g generator-aspnet
That about wraps it up, hope it’ll help you get started.
