Rolling my own OAuth 1.0 client

by dotnetnerd 24. March 2020 08:18

OAuth is one of those things where I always wonder about how had the state of libraries etc are. It seems like a problem pretty much everyone will tackle, but I am still not able to find a simple, library that works well with .NET Core HttpClient without being a whole framework in itself or at least very framework dependent.More...

This side up please

On my current project we started seeing issues with images, especially when taken using an IPhone, that were shown as being rotated. Reading up on it I found that this is due to IOS using EXIF orientation, which is not always handled the same way on eg. Windows.

I found a couple of functions, that I modified to work with our TypeScript codebase, so that it utilizes async/await and has a minimum of type information. I suspect they might be useful for others, or myself later on, so here they are.

Copying data on Azure in code

by DotNetNerd 5. February 2020 09:04

I have recently been looking at copying entire collections of data on Azure, in a way that should run as either Azure Functions or Webjobs.

After a while the need for type ahead functionality arose, so the first time around we agreed to include the Bootstrap JavaScript so we could use the Bootstrap Typeahead plugin.

However having to include jQuery, Bootstrap JavaScript and a plugin, which still required me to make some tweeks to work properly, didn’t sit well with me. So the second time around I opted to implement type ahead on my own. More...

Simply being lazy and concurrent

by dotnetnerd 18. November 2017 20:25

I recently worked on a long running migration project, where we needed to ensure that some of the sql migration scripts were only called once per entity that was migrated, in a threadsafe manner. I looked to the System.Collections.Concurrent namespace, but none of the classes were really a good match. Basically what I needed was the ability to run a part of the migration that was identified by key, but ensure that it would only run once, although different parent strategies might try and run it.
