Easily install tools on new PC

I have a new PC and I wan to install all the technology tools that I work with.

I have installed IIS, Visual Studio and make all updates for VS.

Then – I want to have the other programmer tools that I need .

The simplest part is boxstarter and gist ( or onedrive or whatever let’s you put a text file on the web)

 

The gist is at

https://gist.github.com/ignatandrei/fd8601c4adf83f6b1186

(I will maintain with the new programs)

and the command ( from DOS ) is

START http://boxstarter.org/package/nr/url?https://gist.github.com/ignatandrei/fd8601c4adf83f6b1186

And all is set !

What are your favorite programs/installers ?

Dependency injection choice

For a personal pet project I have needed a DI framework . It relates to WebApi – I need to switch the provider for web api between a console and web – mostly authentication / logging different.

Some years ago was only StructureMap – but now there are a lot.

So I started to investigate to choose between the DI frameworks.

What I have wanted:

 

1. open license to use in a project – and source code too – to can upgrade.

2. Updated to the last .NET framework ( so , for .NET 10.0 , I will not be left to upgrade myself the source code – I am lazy too)

3. Speed

4. Last but not least:  easy to use – have some simple example to start me with

 

The first link found was:

http://fukyo-it.blogspot.ro/2012/10/comparing-net-di-ioc-frameworks.html  – it helps about license . Recomends Autofac. I was not very sure about.

Let’s see who have updated the source code to .NET 4.5 . I started looking at github and google code – and , yes, all are updating the source to the latest framework.

For speed I consider relevant http://www.palmmedia.de/Blog/2011/8/30/ioc-container-benchmark-performance-comparison  – if you look down , latest update was(quoting):

“17.11.2013: Added Grace. Updated several containers.”

Recommends  Simple Injector . And from his page seems simple to use.

So my choice is Simple Injector . If you use a DI, please say in the comments what DI and  why.

You can download as pdf my 2012 tools
If you want more explanations about those tools, I am ready to help you. Please contact me at ignatandrei@yahoo.com . I was a teacher – so I can explain easy the programming aspects.
If you have used others, please propose in comments.

Azure tools

Azure storage Explorer : http://azurestorageexplorer.codeplex.com/  – like in VS , but simpler and cleaner

Windows Azure ASP.NET Providers Sample : http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsazure/Windows-Azure-ASPNET-03d5dc14 – utils for fast membership and roles. Small problem on local.

More samples here: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsazure/

And that will be all , after reading the documentation and understanding the concepts ( for example,if you understand the session problem in azure, then you will find a Session provider in the samples and use it)
