nuget package now available!
i've deployed the xos.mvc.framework nuget package which offers base model classes, controllers, and commonly used attribute filters for mvc projects as well as some nifty jquery and css plugins/helpers aimed to speed up asp.net mvc application development. the framework can be found on nuget.org. the source code is also available on github.
this was long awaited.
as it goes with development, i found myself doing a lot of xcopy code-sharing where i had a folder full of "development tools" that i would drag and drop to each new project. the problem is, if i added or modified the code for a particular project, then i would have to remember to manually copy and work the changes back into the core project along with the other projects that used the framework. the net result being various versions of the code with no way to truly know which folder had the latest version of the code.
so, i've finally gotten around to creating a nuget package containing this common code. while this initial release isn't the complete library (i had to pretty much gut it for mass consumption), i plan to continue expanding on it not only for personal use and convenience but also for anyone else who might benefit from an unobtrusive set of code snippets.
organic code...no additives or dependencies.
the goal behind the xos mvc framework is to be an unobtrusive, only use what you want, mvc application toolkit. xos-mvc is not intended to be a configuration heavy, dependency riddled swiss army knife.
organic code strives to be ide agnostic. organic code strives to be platform agonistic. organic code strives to be configuration free.
it isn't always possible.
