The past few days, I’ve been playing with Quartz in a .NET Core application. My goal was to create a scheduler that could trigger other services via those services having an API.

In Part 2 of my series on creating Angular templates for Visual Studio 2017, I made a relatively serviceable template for my latest Angular test. But, I knew it could improved.

A while back, I started looking at ways to port EF6 code, that uses a lot of the API hooks and such, to Entity Framework Core. Over the past week, I managed to port a large scale application that was using EF6 to utilize EF Core. Here are some observations/tips in continuing with my Dotnet Core porting.

Since the OAuth server I’ve detailed previously is using OWIN, I’ve been looking at what it will take to move it to .NET Core. The OWIN OAuth Server provides all of the Secure Token creation. This functionality is not provided with .NET Core’s native middleware.

My first thought is to integrate with IdentityServer4 or Openiddict which provide Secure Token generation and are .NET Core compatible. After some cursory information gathering, I’m putting a few research links here for later use.

I spent the better part of my development time this weekend porting various code from the .NET “full” framework to .NET Core. This included porting EntityFramework 6.1.3 code to EntityFramework Core 1.1.1. It was about as big of a pain as you would expect.

The latest tooling in Visual Studio 2017 for .NET Core is pretty good. However, it seemed like built-in templates are a bit lacking. Fortunately, the dotnet sdk, and subsequently the CLI, have libraries available for various Single Page Application framework quick starts.

A fellow developer asked me how filter Pipes could be used for filtering based on checkboxes. Using the existing code samples I’ve created, I endeavored to put together a little demo of how this can be achieved.

After finishing up a component to filter data, generically, client-side paging seems like the next logical step to implement.
