EmbeddedResourceVirtualPathProvider

A custom VirtualPathProvider for IIS - load views and assets from Embedded Resources in referenced assemblies . To get started, install into your ASP.NET web application via nuget:

Install-Package EmbeddedResourceVirtualPathProvider

This will add some code into App_Start registering the provider.

Move views and assets into other assemblies, maintaining folder structure. e.g.

/MyAspNetApp/Views/Thing/Thing.cshtml -> /ThingComponent/Views/Thing/Thing.cshtml

And set the the files BuildAction as EmbbeddedResource. Make sure your assembly is referenced, and you're done!

By default, all assemblies in the appdomain are scanned. You can restrict this in App_Start\EmbeddedResourceVirtualPathProviderStart.cs file. You can also map assemblies to their location on disk, so they ca nbe refereshed when you edit the files during development.

There is some help at https://github.com/mcintyre321/EmbeddedResourceVirtualPathProvider/wiki/Help

Dynamic Content Routing

You can set up rules determining the order to check assemblies for resources, letting you (for example) have different view assemblies for different hostnames.
