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
Service-based data adapter for LLBLGen entities using ServiceStack
This post is about leveraging the LLBLGen Pro and ServiceStack tools to allow users to use the existing LLBLGen Adapter API on the client to manage, manipulate, query and update entities on remote servers, across database platforms even (SQL, MySql, Oracle, etc…). This allows LLBLGen users to fully take advantage of the query API they are familiar with and write code manipulating entities as if they were on the server. C#, llblgen, orm, servicestack, web api
