Using ILMerge to hide Dependencies

A few days ago I needed to install a nuget package to get some work done. Unfortunately, it depends on a higher version of Newtonsoft.Json than what we were currently using. I briefly looked into upgrading the version of Newtonsoft.Json across the application, but that ended up looking like more work than the original task I was working on.

Scratching the Itch

Turns out writing an application for stock markets is not the barrier, it’s getting the live data needed to be able to make money with it.

FubuMVC: Redirect and Transfer

Sometimes instead of simply rendering a view from your action, I need to redirect the user to another URL, or call another action.

In a multi-tenant application I’m working on, I handle all default requests to many domains with a single action in my FubuMVC application. I want to choose which behavior chain to run, depending on the URL that the user has browsed to.
