I have been making some updates to my Blog Application (Naif.Blog) over the last few weeks, as I both enhance the application with some new features and bring it up to the latest version of ASP.NET Core (v2.1). In my implementation of theming I have allowed themes to “override” any of the default Views. This makes the theming engine very powerful but it also makes it potentially harder for theme creators as they would need to understand some basic Razor. This is where Tag Helpers come in - Tag Helpers provide a way to express functionality in HTML markup. In this blog I review the built-in Tag Helpers.
In my continuing series on building my own Blog Application I next turn to theming. Any self-respecting Blog Application needs to be able to be themed and this is actually fairly straightforward in ASP.NET Core. In addition to introducing the theming engine this blog will also introduce the new Configuration and Options frameworks available in ASP.NET Core.
So its that time of the year again. Its 32 C outside here in Canada, so it must be time for the new English Premier League season to start. This year I feel bold enough to make predictions so here goes. My top eight this year are as follows
In my opinion last year Manchester United were actually lucky to keep it close right up to the last game, and while they have been strengthened by the addition of Robin Van Persie, I can’t see them beating City this year so I am predicting that Manchester City will repeat - but it will be close again.
