AIM OF THIS PROJECT
To help people getting started with RavenDb by showing some common problems and how to solve those problems using RavenDb as the database/persistence.
This is a sample ASP.NET MVC3 application that leverages RavenDB as the database / persistence store. I've copied StackOverflow's home page, include css and images. It looks a lot like it ... but I'm not a CSS/HTML Gandalf so it's a bit rough around the edges. Because I'm putting my emphasis on the how to use RavenDB .. I'm not putting much energy into the UI. If it looks similar/OK to StackOverflow, then that's enough :)
Like Racoon Blog (another sample application which is actually being used in production scenarios), this project is trying to show the benefits of RavenDb in an ASP.NET MVC3 framework.
What it Does
- List some fake questions. Summarize answers / views / tags.
- Shows how to do simple queries and leverage Indexes.
- Shows how to batch page queries using RavenDb
What it Uses
- RavenDb v88 / RavenDb Embedded v888
- xUnit for Tests
- ASP.NET MVC3
- StructureMap for IoC
- NBuilder for fake data
- An attempt to simulate a production solution layout (eg. n-Tier, IoC, InputModels/ViewModels)
What it is NOT
- A best practice application. I'm a noob, so this is a learning experience.
Can I see a demo of it running?
- Sure can -> http://ravenoverflow.apphb.com/
Support / Help
