Swashbuckle & inheritance: Give. Me. The. Types
For API endpoints that return multiple types, you can use inheritance with Swashbuckle to get create a Swagger / Open API definition featuring the variety of available types. Serving all these types is not the default behaviour. This post shows you how to opt in.
Directory.Build.props: C# 9 for all your projects
.NET Core can make use of C# 9 by making some changes to your
.csproj files. There is a way to opt all projects in a solution into this behaviour in a single place, through using a
Directory.Build.props file and / or a
Directory.Build.targets file. Here's how to do it.
C# 9 in-process Azure Functions
C# 9 has some amazing features. Azure Functions are have two modes: isolated and in-process. Whilst isolated supports .NET 5 (and hence C# 9), in-process supports .NET Core 3.1 (C# 8). This post shows how we can use C# 9 with in-process Azure Functions running on .NET Core 3.1.
Azure Functions and .NET 5: Query params, Dependency Injection, Bicep & Build
The upgrade of Azure Functions from .NET Core 3.1 to .NET 5 is significant. There's an excellent guide for the general steps required to perform the upgrade. However there's a number of (unrelated) items which are not covered by that post:
ASP.NET Core: Proxying HTTP Requests with an AllowList
This post demonstrates a mechanism for proxying HTTP requests in ASP.NET Core. It doesn't proxy all requests; it only proxies requests that match entries on an "allowlist" - so we only proxy the traffic that we've actively decided is acceptable as determined by taking the form of an expected URL and HTTP verb (GET / POST etc).
Using Reflection to Identify Unwanted Dependencies
I having a web app which is fairly complex. It's made up of services, controllers and all sorts of things. So far, so unremarkable. However, I needed to ensure that the controllers did not attempt to access the database via any of their dependencies. Or their dependencies, dependencies. Or their dependencies. You get my point.
DecimalModelBinder for nullable Decimals
My memory appears to be a sieve. Twice in the last year I've forgotten that MVCs ModelBinding doesn't handle regionalised numbers terribly well. Each time I've thought "hmmmm.... best Google that" and lo and behold come upon this post on the issue by the fantastic Phil Haack:
Using Expressions with Constructors
Every now and then you think "x should be easy" - and it isn't. I had one of those situations this morning. Something I thought would take 5 minutes had me still pondering 30 minutes later. I finally cracked it (with the help of a colleague - thanks Marc!) and I wanted to note down what I did since I'm sure to forget this.
Getting up to speed with Bloomberg's Open API...
A good portion of any devs life is usually spent playing with APIs. If you need to integrate some other system into the system you're working on (and it's rare to come upon a situation where this doesn't happen at some point) then it's API time.
