Excluding the node_modules Folder in Visual Studio WebSite Projects



If you're working on a client side project that includes an NPM folder with a large number of dependencies and you're using a WebSite Project in Visual Studio, you've probably found that this is a terrible combination out of the box. In this post I describe why this is a problem and how you can work around it with a simple hack.

Automating Installation Builds and Chocolatey Packaging



Having a quick and easy way to build a final deployable applicationsin a few minutes has been a huge motivation for me. I can update code and release a new build as soon as a feature is added or a bug is fixed, and my release cycle is much more frequent than it was before. I used to be much more conservative with releases - if something was broken it'd have to wait. But with an easy release mechanism all of that has changed and I can push new releases out much more frequently and I really like the fact that it works this way. In this post I describe my deployment processing for Markdown Monster for creating an installer, publishing it on my Web site and creating and publishing a Chocolatey package.

Error Handling and ExceptionFilter Dependency Injection for ASP.NET Core APIs



Exception handling in API applications is important as errors - both handled and unhandled - need to be passed to clients in some way to let them display error information. ASP.NET's default error handling doesn't provide for object error results by default, but you can use an ExceptionFilter to intercept exceptions and format them yourself. In this post I look at how to create an API exception filter to create error object responses, and hook up custom logging of those errors to disk.

Dealing with Anti-Virus False Positives



I've been struggling with false positive Anti-Virus warnings for Markdown Monster. In this post I describe what problems I was running into and how eventually managed to get a clean distribution of Markdown Monster out the door.
