Lately, I’ve been doing quite a bit of front-end development with the latest version of Angular and that requires token based authentication. So in this article let’s discuss how to create tokens in .Net. I’ll go over setting up tokens in regular .Net, and in a later article, I’ll discuss how to setup tokens in .Net core.
All of the code can be obtained from Github Here.
For the second Codemash pre-compiler day I spent the full day working on the Humanitarian Toolbox project @htbox) with Bill Wagner (@billwagner) and Tony Surma (@tonysurma) and 5 other developers.
What is it?
The Humanitarian Toolbox is an open source non-profit organization, that creates software for disaster response teams. To kick things off, Tony gave us an overview of the projects and we pulled the code from GitHub.
Until recently we used Microsoft TFS for all of our source control. It worked well enough for small, simple projects where all that was necessary was basic check in/check out functionality.
As our business grew, we started running into limitations with TFS. We found that our clients for the larger projects would request new features that would take multiple months to complete, but still have smaller spot-changes for the project as those features were being worked on. In a standard source control system, branching allows you to work on a feature while the existing codebase is still available for modifications, but in TFS when those branches needed to be merged back together it usually ended up being a massive headache.
