About the Breeze JS Samples
These are end-to-end samples which means that most of them have both client and server code. The server code could be written in .NET, Node, Ruby, etc.
Learn more about these samples on the Breeze website.
The sample code is maintained in the breeze.js.samples repository on github where it is maintained continuously between releases of BreezeJS itself.
For the current build, download a zip of the master branch.
For earlier releases, visit the github releases page and select the version of interest.
Once you have the zip on your machine
Unblock it (a Windows security button on the zip properties sheet).
Finding the sample in the repo
Now locate the sample of interest.
The breeze.js.samples library is divided by server stack into different sub-directories:
net - Microsoft.NET server samples with Visual Studio solution and project files
node - Node server samples for Breeze client apps.
java - Java server samples for Breeze client apps.
Build and run
Many of the .NET samples have Visual Studio solution files and you can often just launch-build-and-run in Visual Studio.
Some require a little preparation first, e.g., downloading supporting libraries and installing sample databases.
Look for a sample-specific "readme" that describes how to install and run.
- if there is one, follow its instructions
- if there isn't one, check the website documentation for that sample
Your OS may interrupt the build flow with security questions, especially if you neglected to "unblock" the zip. Just play along, saying "yes ... go ahead and do that", every time it presents a scary message and asks if you really want to proceed.
