In this post, we look at leveraging T4 templates to extend the power of LLBLGen inside of Visual Studio .NET. Writing T4 templates to auto-generate code is almost a norm at this point it seems, it’s built-in to ASP.NET MVC, and used as a first-class tool in most ORMs. So why not use T4 templates to extend the power of LLBLGen as well.
RESTful Api and UI for Typed Views and Typed Lists with LLBLGen and ServiceStack
In this post, we extend the implementation described in the prior post to include generating an HTML UI and RESTful Api on top of LLBLGen Typed Views and Typed Lists, leveraging the ServiceStack web service and razor framework. The api provides paging, sorting, filtering – source is hosted on GitHub, and a demo is included as well.code generation, llblgen, odata, orm, rest, servicestack
Generating a fully RESTful Api and UI from a database with LLBLGen and ServiceStack (templates on Github and Demo)
In this post, we're going to explore building a generic RESTful api on top of a database with custom CRUD and query conventions, using the LLBLGen ORM and code generator, a ServiceStack service layer, and ServiceStack Razor html entity browser layer. This API and html entity browser can be generated on top of any database that LLBLGen supports (see here for supported database drivers). code generation, llblgen, odata, orm, rest, servicestack
