Trying out Visual Studio Code on Ubuntu

I am very curious about the new .NET Core, ASP.NET 5, EF 7 and Visual Studio Code for Linux, Mac and Windows. I have tried it out on an Ubuntu 15.04 machine. The installation and configuration required a few steps, so it is not an usual “Next-next-next”-installation. But, hey, it is just a beta, a preview so far, and first of all: It worked. I am sharing a couple of screenshots and the commands I ran in the terminal, mixed with comments and links:





#install latest node and npm
curl -sL | sudo bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
sudo npm install -g yo
sudo npm install -g generator-aspnet
# download VS Code and make a link
# make a folder
mkdir workspace/tryvs
cd workspace/tryvs
# create "src/global.json" file:
  "sdk": {
    "version": "1.0.0-beta7"
nano src/global.json
# start VS Code 
# create 
# install omnisharp:
curl -sSL | DNX_BRANCH=dev sh && source ~/.dnx/dnvm/
#install dnx
sudo apt-get install -y libunwind8 gettext libssl-dev libcurl3-dev zlib1g libicu-dev
dnvm upgrade -r coreclr
cd EmptyApplication
dnu restore

#install libuv
sudo apt-get install make automake libtool curl
curl -sSL | sudo tar zxfv - -C /usr/local/src
cd /usr/local/src/libuv-1.4.2
sudo sh
sudo ./configure
sudo make
sudo make install
sudo rm -rf /usr/local/src/libuv-1.4.2 && cd ~/
sudo ldconfig

#build, I got an error here
dnu build

#start the web server
dnx web

Google Analytics in Sharepoint

Google Analytics is a popular and mature tool for monitoring network activities on your site. Why not use it in Sharepoint? Dave Coleman and Mike Knowles provide good guides for doing that. There is a promising plugin to SP SPGoogleAnalytics which integrates both and provides an easy interface to put GA to your SharePoint installation and see the data directly on your intranet. It comes from codeplex:

What do you think about spgoogleanalytics.codeplex? When I recently had to turn on Google Analytics on an intranet, I had no time for evaluating SPGoogleAnalytics, so I did the harder way: just put ga script in the end of a master page, just before ending </body> tag.

But what if one has multiple masterpages? Is there a way to put GA in one step? Maybe a user control like Knowles suggests?

Sharepoint repos on github

githubYou may think all interesting open source Sharepoint projects on codeplex. Well it is true, but there are some interesting projects on github as well. There are 17 projects for now. From a matrix to RichControls.

richcontrols for sharepoint


ett intressant plugin till jQuery

Sharepoint Manager 2010

Ett ytterligare grym verktyg från codeplex-lägret: Sharepoint Manager.


spribbon fluent

Ett mycket intressant projekt för att skapa ribbon-anpassningar.
Som så här:

new ButtonDefinition()
    Id = "New",
    Title = "Start new game",
    CommandJavaScript = "window.location.reload();",
    Image = new ImageDefinition()
        Url16 = "/_layouts/images/ChessWebPart/new16.png",
        Url32 = "/_layouts/images/ChessWebPart/new32.png"

Så blir resultatet:

Autocomplete för sökruta i Sharepoint

Ett mycket trevligt projekt: Search As You Type på Codeplex. Ladda ner textfilen och lägg till javascript och css från den filen till masterpage. Så enkelt är det. Jag har testat det genom att direkt stoppa in koden i Chrome Console.

Sharepoint + OpenSource = Sant

Om man söker på Sharepoint i får man 729 projekt som är alltså öppna. Det är inte illa. Bland dem finns till exempel Sharepoint Log Viewer. Till det kommer 713 öppna projekt som är taggade ASP.NET som kan användas väldigt mycket i Sharepoint-utveckling. Bland ASP.NET-taggade finns smidiga Telerik Extensions.

Powershell är också absolut en tag som man ska söka på i codeplex. är Microsofts officiella OpenSource-portal. Det måste finnas andra sidor där öppna projekt inom Sharepoint och ASP.NET samlas. Tipsa gärna i kommentarer.

Sharepoint Log Viewer

Mycket bra verktyg för att debugga din sharepoint applikation är Sharepoint Log Viewer som är Open Source och finns att hämta på

Det går att öppna en logg-fil, det går att köra live monitoring och att exportera. Det sköna är att det är lätt att söka efter correlations-id.

Rekommenderar verktyget!
