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.
In this post, we look at adding theming capabilities to the ServiceStack Razor View engine. Source and live demo are included. This post is third in a series investigating ways to leverage ServiceStack in building a RESTful API and UI from a database. The main objective for this new theming capability is to allow easy development of new themes on top of the ServiceStack Razor view engine, with fallback capability to the default theme for views, content pages, master pages and layouts that don’t require specific theming..net, C#, llblgen, rest, 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
