Alfero's Northwind Project
NOTE: a newer version of this project is avaliable at https://github.com/achingono/Northwind
This project is a demonstration of several technologies
- Entity Framework Code-First
- ASP.NET WebPages
- ASP.NET Web API
- T4 Templates
- Twitter Bootstrap
Here I wanted to find out if I can use Entity Framework Code First without modifying the database.
ASP.NET Web Pages
While discussing with a co-worker I came up with an idea to put together a project that demonstrates the feasibility of building a functional application with just ASP.NET Web Pages and ASP.NET Web API controllers.
I simply fell in love with the concept, but wasn't sure if I could build a scalable real-world application with it.
Here, I use T4 templates powered by T4 Toolbox to generate project files. I use reflection to discover class properties and attributes which are in turn used to generate other classes/files.
I now prefer this framework over jQuery UI. Just me.
I don't think I have to explain this one.
Just open the project in Visual Studio and run.
This project is just a proof-of-concept. I do not claim to be an expert at any of the technologies demonstrated here. I only share in the hope that someone finds it useful.
