This library provides a call-level API for .NET wrapping Mingle’s RESTful API. It’s useful when constructing rich clients for Mingle or using Mingle.
If you are building inside Visual Studio 2010 then you have all the required dependencies.
- Microsoft .NET 4.0 Framework Client Profile is the minimum run-time framework.
- Sandcastle Help File Builder for building help.
- IronRuby 1.0 (required for running the tests and included with the source code)
- Microsoft Dynamic Language Runtime – DLR (required for running the tests and included with the source code)
You can build and test Mingle.NET from the command line using the build.bat batch file. Build.bat drives the build setting environment variables (buildvars.bat) and compilation/test (rakefile). Everything required to run a command-line build and test is included with the source.
- Open a command line window, navigate to the directory where you placed the source and run “build”.
Tests for Mingle.NET are written in Ruby using the rspec gem. To run them from the command line:
- Run buildvars.bat to establish the environment. You may need to adjust the settingsin buildvars.bat depending on the locations of .NET 4.0, msbuild and mstest on you computer.
- “rake spec”
